          • For the first time since I bought it this watch went flat and needed charging a couple of weeks ago. It was may daily work watch for so many years that it never went flat, even over a couple of weeks of not being used when on holiday. I don’t wear it as much now that I’m mostly behind a desk, but I thought I might get the bracelet tidied up a bit and put it back on that and I’ll be inclined to wear it a bit more. For now it’s on the Seiko silicone dive strap and spending a little bit of time out of the box to charge it up, both on the wrist and on the bench.

              Yes, solar. My partner and I store our watches in the safe, except for our Eco-Drives, which sit on shelves etc. where they will get some ambient light but not direct sunlight. A good idea, I think, to maintain them at at least 20% charge for longevity of their ESU.

              normally stored in my watch box that has a clear top, but I've had it in the lower left corner which probably receives the least ambient light at this time of year. I'll leave it out for a week or so to give it a good charge then try putting it back in the box in a different position and see how it goes. It didn't stop running last winter and I was already not wearing it as much so it may have changed position in the watch box since then.

                When you commented in "The Keeper" thread, "...an orange dial from a few years ago back...", I had a hunch it might be an Orange Sawtooth

                I know these have increased in value over the years, but the SHC0xx Sawtooth (2006-2011) has monumental values beyond the cool aesthetics. They were Seiko's Last Mainstream Quartz Diver that ended a 32-year tradition of battery-powered mainstream divers that started in 1979 by the Quartz 150m Diver 7548-7000. This is excluding LEs like the Giugiaro Design SBEE001. Today, we're back to how it was in 1978, with the cheapest Seiko Quartz true diver being a Professional line Quartz Tuna.

                Funny thing how the Hodinkee/Monochrome/Ablogtowatch-types who go on about how the SBDB008 Spring Drive Tuna and Kinetic GMT Diver SUN0xx are some kind of refreshing interpretations on the Tuna have likely never seen a Sawtooth.

                Rescue orange being a very practical color for deerworrier also.

                Yeah this is an interesting model, are there any others that do a 'mirror of themselves' ?

                Thanks, Don. This is my first "proper" watch. Got this sometime in early 2009 when I knew nothing about watches (I still don't know anything, but that's a different story). Got hooked by the looks and immediately bought it. My love for watches started with this one. So, a very special one for me. It's an Eco-Drive Perpetual Calendar Chrono, model no: BLE8005-77E, case dia 39mm, approx 6 months running time on a full charge.

                Nice piece Vish and great back story. The first is always exciting. Definitely looking forward to seeing more of your collection as it progresses

                Awesome, Vish. Thank you for sharing. Citizen is certainly a master when it comes to modern complications. I look at your watch, and it's like the functions of my digital G-Shock, but expressed beautifully through analog. Digital tells information, but analog shows it and, by doing so, adds a certain value.

                I can imagine how your next progression would be to put some chunky leather straps on the vintages?
