    Don't know why I like this

    Some thing about the SBDX016 Auto Tuna really appeals to me. I'm not a bling person and also not the ultra drab tool lover either. The rose gold with the brown just works for me. Still don't know why they ruined the hands on the latest Tunas?

    I like it as well. The hands don't bother me at all.

    I really like it, though it's not something I would ever wear. I'm not a big fan of the Monster hands on the new Tunas, but it is offset somewhat by the killer lume that these new models have.

    I like it a lot !

    In general I love the TUNA line up.

    But I prefer the old TUNA style. Especially the black pvd cases.

    Amen brother. Glad I'm not alone on the hands thing.

    I found out from my contact at Seiko that there are a few of these slated for the US market that will be available via the Boutique.
