#TBT SEIKO 6619-8060 MACV-SOG – A STERILE WATCH

Today’s #TBT takes a look at a Seiko 6619-8060 MACV-SOG and it’s a watch, when first examined, that doesn’t really stand out as something special. That trait, as we’ll see, is actually significant. More significant, perhaps, is the fact that the MACV-SOG lore surrounding this Seiko and a couple other variants grew out of a forum posting on the Seiko Citizen Watch Site and has now grown into what I can only describe as an ever-evolving research project. It’s fascinating stuff and reminds that in this day of Insta(gram)nt gratification, the method of posting within a forum still bears some serious merit. Yes, today’s article is about a watch, but it’s also a little about history and the power of collective research.

I have to say that, as a retired Nasal Radiator and semi-active silly-villain pile it, I love the look of that watch; the distinct difference between hands, numerals and other markings vis-à-vis the black background look purely awesome, and the overall size truly does allow you to both use and enjoy that contrast! Great R-tickle, R-T, mini tanks four posting! ;)
