    Time for some Tuna

    So let's show our love here for the various Tuna models. If you got them show them:

    I did two of these in my modding days. This is actually Navy Blue ceramic not black with gold teflon coating.




    Here was a second variation of it that I tried on both mesh and custom Toshi leather. In this case the shroud was polished, bezel insert was Navy blue ceramic with white painted indexes, and a gold teflon coated case:



    Being dressed up on mesh





    Auto Tuna


    Cheers,

    Michael

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!

    Ha ha....I was just browsing my favourite Chinese watch dealer's facebook pages (who doesn't?) and THIS is why you don't buy ceramic watches. The gist of the translation reads "Customer breaks ceramic shroud, Seiko's repair quote roughly 76,600 JPY"

    Gotta revive this thread. I'm waiting for new NATO straps that I will post later with my one and only Tuna.
    Meanwhile having coffee outside...

    I've recently gotten into Seiko Tuna's. Here's my current group pic of all my Seiko's with shrouds (a few are Tuna's).

    Thanks,

    Yeah, love the TUNA style !

    I own an all original 7549-7009 golden TUNA and I love it.



    And an SBBN017 is on it's way to me.


    The SBDX011 is under my radar. I hope I have it at the end of this year.
    Regards Phil

    Mmmm. I love me some Tuna.

    I don't think I'll ever buy one, but I love looking at them.

    Just got this Baby Tuna and I'm loving it. It really captures some of the best features of the Monster and the Tuna in an affordable package. I'll do a more in-depth write up soon.

    Yes, it's really almost a Monster with a shroud bolted on. The dial is different and the bezel is narrower, but overall it wears very similar to a Monster. Surprisingly comfortable.
