    Congratulations. I know the dial is the main event but I can't name a watch with better machining or internals either. 100m WR too. That's probably good enough to withstand anything I throw at it. How's the bracelet?

    The bracelet is good and reasonably low profile compared to the GS divers I had. Sadly Seiko continues to use the floating pin for the links retained by a micro screw on each side. This is better than the pin and collar system, but still a bit too flexy compared to say the screw system in a Rolex(which the pin is three times thicker than the GS pin). This one comes with two additional straps (Navy blue and brown croc) and a GS deployant. The brown strap actually has blue stitching that matches the dial. The sharp finish on the hands and indexes is quite impressive and carries on the case edges. This is one of the more technically complex case, hands, and dial setups I've ever owned. The sharpness IMO makes it more sporty than purely dressy. Add that it is Spring Drive which is possibly one of the most technically complex (in a good way) movements made with tech that actually is measurably better. I thought that the dial might be a bit too feminine, but on the wrist, I do not feel it is. Balance is very good on the wrist and I'm happy to see GS includes links to size up to 8" wrists where Rolex lately send out watches that can only size up to 7.5". Thus ends my one paragraph mini review.

    I love those old Sea Wolfs.
    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    Thanks Michael. They have pulled clear of Rolex in at least two significant areas. I'll be more than a little torn between this and the Milgauss z-blue for a while. I'd love to see more of your thoughts and pics of this one in WRUW.
