Of course my pictures are not very good, but here it is.

I dumped the gray silicone strap in favor of this Zenith type bracelet from Strapcode.
This is the special edition Antarctica watch with penguin tracks, so if you’re ever being stalked by a penguin, you can recognize it right away now.
It’s a bit big, but I think in certain situations with certain outfits, it’s manageable for me.

For $330.00 I got a new Seiko Special Edition Tuna for cheaper than most micro brands. I think it was a deal and I guess that’s all that matters.
They had the Monster for like $315 or $310, but I wanted a Tuna in the collection.

Many a Watch God are raising their ale filled gourds in salute to your fine ass pick up..they all love that dial & they all give it 2 spears up!!..
Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...

I like that Tuna, congratulations on your new watch!
Thanks, you know me, a good cheap deal on a watch is hard for me to pass up.

I like that a lot. Does that 44mm lug-to-lug measurement mean it wears smaller than 43.5mm might otherwise suggest? These days when I put on a Monster, it feels big, but not ridiculous. For whatever reason, I always thought the Tuna would seem bigger, but maybe not...

Most lugs stick out farther. I can’t wear a watch that is more than 48mm lug to lug length, it will overhang my wrist too much. These short lugs don’t stick out so it’s almost like wearing a puck.
