    Just a plain old Black Military. It's just my daily beater, but I have never been let down by it.

    I have an SKX031, a really affordable, simple and quite robust watch. Here it is on a Nato strap.

    Itamimasu,

    That's a great watch, what's the type number?
    I've got a SKX007, a newer version Seiko military SNX427 and a SNKE063. Love my Seiko's!

    Sea Monster and Pepsi Diver; love 'em both.

    I really like the Monster mods I have seen here.

    Just got my vintage 70s orange Seiko ladies diver 2205 back from the watch repair shop. Took a couple months to locate a replacement crystal.

    Monster and Med. sized Pepsi. At first I was thinking it was too small, but it has grown on me. It's on a Traser strap I had laying around. The background is a cast of a Bigfoot print.

    I am hoping to pick up my first Seiko sometime soon :)

    Just need to find a few locally so I can try them on for size, and if they work, potentially order myself a SKX013 (with a black Nato strap)
