Screw down, signed crown.
I can't show a movement shot because it is a monocoque case.
The technical info
Model: SCVF001 ( 4S15 -7000) First Production: 1995 (discontinued in 1997)
Movement: Automatic 25 jewel 4S15 , hi-Beat @ 28,800 vph, Hacking and Manual Winding
Case: Titanium monocoque
Bracelet: Titanium w/ Ratchet Clasp....Mine did not come with this, I have to find one.
Diameter: 40mm w/o Crown
Lug Width: 19mm
Made at Shizukuishi Watch Studio where Credor and Grand Seiko are made. First production of the 4s15-7000 was 1995 and was discontinued in 1997 due to the high cost to make the 4s15.
I had read about the movement and wanted one. I began the search and saw various styles, but none jumped out at me for the cost. Then I saw this, I read about it and decided this model was going to be mine. It was a long hunt, but worth it. It's not as pristine as I usually like, but I think I can get it better. I read that just getting a new Hardex crystal is easier than buffing out the scratches, so that looks like the route I will go. Due to the case being a mono, I am going to probably send it to Seiko Japan to get it done and have it serviced. If that is a bad idea, to send it to Japan, let me know. Perhaps I can get a replacement bracelet through them.
