cobrajet25 Nice one. I got one of these for far less than I expected to pay as well. Only needed a new battery. They are big, but not heavy, so not uncomfortable to wear.
I doubt I will wear it very much, but it fills a gap in my collection. I have a 6159 'Grandfather Tuna', a 300m 7549, and a 1000m 7C46. I tried on the 1000m before bidding, and, while large, it is not too much bigger than the 300m SBBNs I wear on a regular basis. I decided to fill the gap.
They are literally within a millimeter or two of each other, and with the exotic construction are fairly light, as you say. Worst case scenario is I flip it on Ebay for a nice profit.
They're large but they're lighter than a 7549 300m. I never find mind a burden.
Probably my last bigger purchase for a while - a King Seiko Vanac 5626-7240
This was one I've been looking for, for a bit. AWB has one that I've been looking at but it has some chips in the crystal that bothered me and non-original bracelet, so I held off. When this one popped up, all original, I went for it. I have high hopes that it will clean up well.
Ordered some $36 straps for my $35.96 Success Sharing watch.
As wrong as that sounds back in the day (25 years ago) I put $200 rims on my $35 Toyota pickup truck.
I already have my #Straps4ACure seatbelt Supreme NATO on my Ecodrive so I guess I might have to do a review of the Crown & Buckle top strap VS. Blushark's top strap when it comes.
Crown & Buckle neutered Supreme NATO
