    :D Tuna's are cool, nothing wrong with quartz, especially a really good one, they have their advantages over mechanical and in divers its nice not to have to unscrew the crown very often.

    I believe Seiko is making some of the finest quartz movements anyway
    So what is wrong with quartz :-)

    One of the great things about the Tuna is that it works surprisingly well on a range of straps. I have left mine on a Toshi as that suits me perfectly!



    Both the watch and the strap were sourced from SC.

    Re: Incoming ,its a Tuna

    Had my 007 variant for a few months now and it has knocked everything off my wrist.

    Been badly Hankering after a Seiko bracelet for it but that Tosh looks great.

    You will love it

    Enjoy

    Re: Incoming ,its a Tuna ,Arrived bit pic Heavy

    Just a small update after 5 days with the super cool Tuna ,wears really nice ,the ticking is taking a bit of getting used to,after auto`s for me for a while ,I set it with the atomic clock nearly a week ago and it hasn`t gained or lost a second in that time. Unbeliavable accuracy for what I paid ,these really are high end movements from Seiko.Loving this watch at the moment.

    Congrats on the SBBN007 - great pick-up! :bounce:
    The venerable 7C46 that powers the Tunas is nothing to be frowned upon.
    It's hand-assembled in Japan, more expensive to make than a mechanical 6R15, and it's been around since the 80s with a reputation for being super-durable.
    You don't have to take my word for it. Do some research and you'll find out why it's awesome. :D

    Personally, I prefer the SBBN007 on rubber, as it contrasts well with the stainless steel bezel inlay.

    Re: Incoming ,its a Tuna ,Arrived bit pic Heavy

    a rubber or leather will do as well..

    Great looking watches those tunas. Agree there's nothing wrong with a decent quartz, good to keep setting the autos by.
