Thread: Seiko SBBN019

    Seiko SBBN019

    Thoughts on this beast?

    - Limited to 300 pieces in 2010
    - Titanium case/bezel
    - White ceramic shroud
    - Sapphire crystal
    - 7C46 quartz movement

    Do I have the wrist to pull off the huge case size? Probably not, but I find this watch intriguing. I think it looks better than the new round of limited Tunas that were just released, but the price was, and still is (used), a bit hefty for what it is.

    The blue one is still my favouritist watch I've ever owned. How much can you get it for?

    Hmmm ..... So what do we have here.... An Oreo-Tuna???

    I actually like the contrasting color, but still haven't gotten over the design.

    But if I do get over it, it will be the version from the OP.

    There's one from Hong Kong on eBay for $2,200 USD. Too much for this watch, if you ask me.

    What's the reference number of yours?

    P.S. Nutty, I love the Oreo nickname--I hadn't thought of that.

    SBBN021. I paid 2 grand American for mine. Overpaid for sure but I've been wanting one for years.

    Size and color shroud would kill it, for me. But if that doesn't bother you, a good quality quartz is always welcome, I suppose.

    Hahaha....that's why we are all different.

    In fact, the more I look at it, the more I like it, and definitely looks better than Domo's (whoops....sorry..this is the only opportunity for me to get back at you for always tempting me with a GS...heehee....
