Description

I might have put a bid on this watch, fully thinking I would end up being outbid. I got a pretty great deal on it (it even came with this extra Uncle Straps bracelet, which I quite like on it). It arrived while I was still traveling for work. It's the Seiko SPB297 (I actually think it's a JDM version, so the SBDC165) "Save the Ocean" version of this 62MAS interpretation. It's that DIAL that got me. Also really like how the dial goes with the black, circular brushed (subtly), stainless steel bezel. I need to pull something out of the main watch boxes to make room for this. 馃槑
