Been holding up fine patina looks great. Even the pushers are bronze so they are forming a patina as well. It looks really great with the green tinted Casio Royale

You can own nothing but Casios and be a serious collector. I consider myself a very serious and passionate collector, and my collection currently consist of 4 watches, 3 of which were given to be by family and friends, and a Casio "Royale" I paid $40 for and modded out myself with a kit for an additional. $200. My most expensive piece was a San Martin GMT at a little less than $300 after tax and shipping. And I've owned some iconic, sought-after, and even Omega level watches. But circumstances can change your ability to maintain a large collection, or a collection made up of big names. I am proof of that馃槒. But I cherish the watches I have, and I wear them happily. I once said I would never own an Invicta. But when I had to sell my last dive watch and my friend Jeremy from @OldLineWatches kindly sent me an Invicta 1953, that way of thinking changed. Not only do I wear that Invicta every other day I appreciate it, I will never sell it, and I love it because it was given to me out of the kindness of someone's heart simply because he knew the loss that I felt.

Thank you! A gift from my Mother. Love this watch! Gotta have the bullbars!

Likewise! My grail uses to be the whites dial/black bezel Omega SMP 300. But then I actually got to compare a Seamaster (not the SMP 300, mind you, but one of the higher prices Seamasters) and a Tudor Pelagos. I bought the Pelagos. Literally everything was better about it. I was able to try on a Rolex Explorer II with the polar dial as well, but it just wasn't in my price range. Such a magnificent timepiece though! I may end up getting a like a Seiko explore two mod whenever they decide to come out with a true GMT movement. I've seen some of those mods and they look absolutely freaking amazing.

That's awesome to know Thanks for the info. The online Seiko serial number decoder i used is a little off I guess! I had a couple others that I wish I'd checked but I sold them before I checked them They were really small on me I think one may have been a women's watch for sure The other one possibly or may have just been a really small men's watch (the square case one)

That would be even cooler. I want a birth year watch, still 7 years off though
