  • Feeling brighter this morning. Perhaps it’s the cheering effect of an orange diver.

  • Thats a IsoFrane for sure, there are some that look and feel very very similar (no bad thing) but those are legit.

    Nice setup.

      • Another quiet afternoon at the depot. Enjoyed the warm weather today - it got up to 25deg here in Christchurch. We’re gonna feel it when the southerly blows through tomorrow night and it’s only 10deg on Tuesday. Ah well, that’s the way it goes.

            Yeah it's always a good idea that, otherwise ownership can become questionable

        • I think I’m the only person that doesn’t like the the Z22 rubber!

          Swapped it out for a NATO, but still struggling to find a strap that I like with this one.

          The key with the Z Seiko straps is to pre-shape them. Even then it can take a few goes and I far prefer the FV to the CV that usually comes standard.

            Good advice LeroyC, the FV's are less grunt too, they have less stretch in them, and are easier to pre-bend on the stove top.

          • Ventured out today for an appointment.
            Only titanium monocoque will do.

              I was wondering if this was a carbon print over leather?? Casio do a similar strap for the 504 over leather. Looks cool!!

              Strap came a forum member in Dunedin. It’s leather backed.
              He supplies excellent straps.

              Titanium Duratec monocoque with the same movement as the Eco-Zilla, the PMX56-2811 is a rare discontinued JDM Marine series. You can think of it as the ISO-diver version of the Citizen "Ray Mears".

                Very nice, Tempus. The internals are very well preserved indeed--no moisture damage on the dial nor hands, despite all those case orifices.

            • A pandemic purchase arrived this morning, a Daini Seiko 7005-7030 from 1970. I found it really interesting how similar the dial and case design are to the SARB033 that I have, these two definitely have some DNA in common. Nice to think this one might have played a part in the cream-dialled SARB035's creation 35 years down the line:

                That is a beautiful piece, Gauss. Congratulations! ...I can confirm the DNA match, yes, and more than skin deep too. Daini Seikosha was the Seiko division that we know today as the watch manufacturer Seiko (Seiko Instruments Inc.).

                As I’ve mentioned before on other threads, the SARB033 was a re-designation of the 6R15 “Spirit” SCVS003. The entire Spirit collection was, exactly as the name implies, a rekindle of older Seiko gents watch spirit, so the SCVS003’s (and thus SARB033’s) creation was more than just influenced by watches like your 7005. IMO, the 7005 played more than just a part—it was “the part” that the original Spirit range tried to capture.

                The movement inside—the Seiko Cal. 7005 introduced just a year prior to your watch being made—is the base calibre of the entire 7000 Series. While the movement designation “70xx” existed only until 1995, the series did not end, but became the recently discontinued 7S family (7S25, 7S26, 7S36), a re-designed upgrade of which is the Cal. 6R15 in your SARB033. The 7000 Series lives on today as the 4R and 6R Series, and the Cal. 7005 was the singular spark that ignited them all, way back in 1969. Seiko 7005 should really be nicknamed the Seiko “Adam”

                Thanks for your knowledge Don, I knew of the Spirit/SARB relationship but not of that between the 7000 series and the Spirit series itself. It makes a lot of sense when I think about it after reading your comment. It's great to learn that the 7005 started so much of what Seiko does today, and we can still enjoy the legacy of Suwa through a lot of what Orient does with their movements as well!
