New One

Post by jason_recliner » November 5th 2023, 4:27am

Wanna guess what it is?

Nothing fancy, it was a bit spur-of-the-moment as I had store credit from some jewellery I had to return (sad story) :-(

I'm guessing something solar.
Nearly. I love everything about the new solar Tuna except wearing one. I wanted something different from my current collection that might get some wear.

^^I agree with the Bad Ass Seiko Monster Divers Tool
Nearly, as well, but the only one discounted had some jinky red markings on the bezel and look a bit gay. Also no sapphire.

So I ended up with this. I'm so far out of touch I didn't know what it was until I looked at the warranty email (a warranty email! WHAT A WORLD!!!). It's a SRPE05K, otherwise known as a King Turtle. I always wanted a 6306/9 but I like this more because 1) ceramic bezel 2) sapphire 3) great strap with trick metal keeper 4) case is shiny where it should be and has no scratches where they shouldn't be 5) new movement should run like a champ 6) no dicking around getting it serviced and presure tested before swimming 6) incredible unmatched Lumibrite (presumably, hopefully, haven't seen it in the dark yet)

First dive watch in a very long time!

I googled it, and it looks fucking terrific!
My house is chaos until carpets are installed this week. Too hard to take a decent pic. Youse can all get stuffed!

FFS pretty sure everybody knows what a Turtle looks like by now...

WTF Recliner, that's an actual real dive watch. Nice.
Meritocracy: the privilege, wealth and advancement of those who chose their parents wisely.
Capitalism: a cult that promised to do good for the worst reasons.
Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.
