SOLD in an instant!!!

FS: SEIKO Prospex quartz dive watch, model # SBBN007, the famous Tuna Can. I've recently retired and find this great watch is not getting any wrist time. I need to pay some bills, so I'm reluctantly selling it. Most of you know the watch, but for those that do not, here is some info. This particular model has been discontinued, and it's replacement (albeit with a new anti-magnetic case) has a current retail price of $1,016 through Katsu Higuchi. Here are some of the features of this great watch:

- Calibre 7C46 (quartz movement) with 5 year battery life and an end of life indicator

- Size - 47mm dia. x 14.4 mm thick, 44 mm lug to lug, with a 22 mm lug spacing

- Weight (without strap/bracelet) 92.3 grams

- Case - stainless steel with "sandblasted" finish shroud held in place via four stainless screws.

- Mineral crystal

- Screw down steel back cover

- 300m water resistant from Seiko (the watch has not been opened since purchased, but no warranty implied or included as far as current water resistance)

I would rate it at TZ Excellent 92%. The only real issue is two small light scratches on the crystal, close to the center. These are very hard to see with the naked eye and not noticeable unless you are looking for them under a light. I tried to catch them with the photos, but I don't think I was very successful. However, they are definitely there and should be disclosed. The rest of the watch is near mint, with only a few very light microscratches on the case where I changed the strap/bracelet. I have the box and all papers that came with it when new.

I bought it on 9/18/07 from Katsu Higuchi, so it is no longer under warranty, if that matters. It will come with the free battery change coupon, but I believe for this to be honored it has to be sent back to Seiko Japan, although I understand Katsu-San acts as the intermediary for this transaction.

Price, including the Maratac Elite band you see in the pictures and the original Seiko rubber band is $430 USD, including shipping in a box with plenty of bubble wrap and packing material via USPS Priority Mail insured. I have also worn it on the 22mm brushed finish Watchadoo bracelet shown in a couple of the photos, and it you want that included, please add $35 (I am not selling the Watchadoo separately). This is the later model Watchadoo bracelet (fits up to 8" wrist) that takes the fat Seiko spring bars and is also in 92% TZ condition (only a few minor scuffs & microscratches).

I can take Paypal (verified accounts only) with no fees and shipping to confirmed Paypal addresses only, please or USPS money order. CONUS sales only, please. No trades please.

Thanks for looking and regards from Texas,

Larry C
