        Got a NOS set of hands for this one, then had those relumed as the luminosity had long gone, the relume has been really nicely done and matches the original aged indices really well. Original hands safely stored away.
        Overall extremely happy. Now just to find an original bracelet, likely to be a long search.

        • Still on holiday and still away, hence same watch. I was a little indifferent to keeping this Digi-Ani, until I took the plunge and got the titanium omega bracelet. In theory in doesn't come on this combo and omega would tell you that. However, with a little research a few others across the globe have made this mod, and it is an absolute keeper now - can't see anything replacing this as the Digi-Ani in the watch box!

          P. S. Not my normal preference for coffee bean, however this one was really nicely made - proving my theory that a good batista can make a great coffee from average beans (the opposite also applies).

                In between Bell and Ross shopping today I took the plunge and 2k later ordered the factory Ti bracelet for my Spacemaster. 6-8 weeks and I’ll give you a run for your money as to the best Digi-Ani (although to be honest I accept the Spacemaster is an acquired taste... and I do quite covert one of the X series Omegas). Damn Xmas holidays and idle hands.

                Gravity is ok. Along with Hummingbird it’s one of the better choices from JDE. Its roughly their equivalent to Robert Harris so it’s not going to set the world alight, but it’s predictable and dependable and as long as the barista doesn’t screw it up it should be palatable. I’ve had worse that’s for sure.

                  Yep agree, although I'm not a Robert Harris fan.

                  It's the 020B38. A nice mechanical diver rated to 200 metres that'll cost you about a dollar per metre it's rated to

                It even survived a cyclone Gauss!!



                I’ve been wearing my Divex to work pretty much every day and this week was no exception. It’s quickly become my new daily wear as it’s so easy and comfy on the wrist. Happy New Year all!

                    • Had two days off so went camping for a night at Matai Bay in the far north. But not before picking up this little barn find on the way in Warkworth.
                      A one female owner completely un-tampered 1974 6105 that was worn for about a year then has been sitting in a series of drawers ever since.

                      I guess it's true what they say about how keeping watches in the dark is what causes the lume to yellow.

                      its never been serviced or even had the case back open so will have to get it serviced and get a new crystal for it.

                      If anyone has any used but decent condition crystals for it please let me know.

                      Happy Seiko Sunday!

                        Yeah it's an olive drab green - seatbelt nylon. Once I get it serviced I'll get a nice tan NATO. 20mm I think, tho this 22mm nato look kinda works in a rugged way
