    Show us your hen's tooth watch

    I've been searching, and searching, and searching for a Seiko BFK. Not just your typical black dialed BFK, or Pepsi, or PVD, or even the yellow that rarely comes up, but the JDM model in ORANGE.



    Which leads to my question for mine and every watch nerds' amusement: what is your hen's tooth watch - either one that you own or one you're chasing?

    We generally refer to that as our "grail", and I'm not telling mine....some dirtbag will snatch it up and charge me double to get it

    Best wishes finding your Seiko, great looking piece.

    I occasionally look for one of these, and the annoying thing is that they were once quite commonplace. I'm sure I'd find one if I devoted myself to it, but I'm not the sort for extended quests.

    Not sure, Grail isn't always rare (as a hen's tooth)... Grail could just be the ultimate watch you aspire to... might not necessarily be a rare one, just freaking expensive !

    That makes two (or a BUNCH) of us. I keep hoping for a 44mm Bronzo and have an agreement with my AD that if they make one and he can get one I can have it at retail.

    Agree,44 mm destro bronzo with smooth bezel and P5000 movt will be so freakin' cool

    Personally I find the diver bezel on submersible to be a scratch magnet,hence I like smooth bezel models

    An Apollo 35th or Mitsukoshi Speedy would be a close substitute but a 6263 is a 6263.



    There's also the Kari GMT-6

    hen's teeth to me means hard to find or rare to find - i would say this one of mine fits that category -the Citizen AP0600-01e sometimes referred to as the Ray Mears -not to be confused with similar looking versions 1258380d1382398612-wruw-tuesday-10-22-2013-_dx10025-copy 11-57-13.jpg great watch !
