      Great wrist shot, woodstock ...Your Seiko is best referred to as a "Tuna", or specifically an SBBN017 Tuna. "MM300" is a nickname for the Automatic SBDX 8L35-equipped watches, just to avoid the confusion ..kiwi.bloke is wearing an MM300 further down the page.

          And to think, most people probably think it needs the dial re-painted etc

          The aging really gives this Small Rose a individualistic signature. A great example from the first decade of the Oyster Prince.

          The other MM300... also seldom worn these days. Keep her nice and warm in the safe for the odd weekend use.

            Great to see a variety of timekeepers today! A late addition from me, but one that could be looked at as a poor man’s alternative to the two ultra-fine Grand Seiko on Hammers’ and captainscalet1’s wrists, the SBGN005G and SBGX083 respectively. My watch has all the performance and precision of the two GS, but only half the build quality, a fraction of the prestige—at least outside of Japan—and even less of the aesthetic beauty. Indeed, this Citizen "Exceed" Eco-Drive EBR74-1092 from 1997 is devoid of the Grand Seiko’s evocative and illustrious heritage.






            Despite the Exceed line being only an entry-level luxury in the Japanese domestic market, this EBR74-1092’s Cal. A710 is a thermal-compensated movement equipped with a rate-trimmer, and an accuracy of +/- 10 sec per year, just like the GS SBGN005G’s Cal. 9F86 and SBGX083’s 9F62. Like the 9F86 (but not the 9F62), Citizen’s Cal. A710 features Independently Adjustable Hour Hand (IAHH), a common spec on HAQs. Yes, this Eco-Drive A710 was the world’s first solar-powered HAQ, and while it was not Citizen’s top module—"The Citizen" quartz models of 1997 had GS-crushing +/- 5 sec per year—it no doubt led the way for the first Eco-Drive The Citizen (Chronomaster) of 2011. Of course, Eco-Drive means no battery replacement.

            For a dress-come-gents watch, the EBR74-1092’s sapphire crystal has a mean anti-reflective coating.

            On the instruments we entrust to pace our lives, to bear witness to our days, and to be the keepers of the most precious thing we have... time.

              Indeed, Harlan ...In 1997, the Grand Seiko flagship model was the quartz SBGX019 in solid 18K white gold, retailing at 2,000,000 Yen. The most expensive steel GS was the SBGX007, priced at 200,000 Yen. Both powered by the Quartz Cal. 9F62, with an accuracy of +/- 10 sec per year, the same as current GS Quartz. To date, very few limited edition GS quartz offered any better than +/- 10 sec per year.

              Citizen's flagship of '97 was "The Citizen" CTZ57-0523, which was sold at 120,000 Yen and fitted with Quartz Cal 0350 +/- 5 sec per year. Every The Citizen of 1997 had this yearly rate. This is, of course, nothing compared to the newly released (2019) Citizen Cal. 0100, which is rated to +/- 1 sec per hear. See https://www.citizenwatch-global.com/caliber0100/

              Those are just crazy numbers, especially the citizen at almost atomic clock levels

ID:	60538 Like Hammers I was traveling for work today - heading home after spending most of the week at our Auckland office. The Mido isn’t as easy to wear when on the move so I threw the Stefan Johansson on the leather NATO for today’s wrist wear. The chrono function also came in handy this morning when making an Aeropress filter coffee.
