Dear Comrades,

Did I ever tell you that "Nowadays" my fingers are "A Bit Itchy"? No? Ok . . .

My second 6309 - 7040 arrived today. Thanks a lot John! (TheTigerUK) First the best news: It slipped under my better half's radar! It is a miracle! |> :-d b-) So, I am still alive :-d.

And second best news: It is very lovely; I couldn't stop taking its fotos for my Comrades before sun went down! :p

3rd best news: No more watch for now. Ehm, errr, I mean I will try . . . :-d :-x

Enjoy the fotos:








A close up on the gorgeous dial: :p




Born in June, like myself: :-!




After setting the time and attaching Pam strap:




24 mm Pam strap fit quite well:










Brutal accuracy test starts: b-)



Thank you all very much for sharing my happiness . . .

That looks really nice, Capt. The aged bezel gives the watch personality and character, yet the dial seems to be in excellent condition. Beautiful vintage contrast and a nice thick strap that complements the whole package. Quite a find you've got there. :-!

Dear Ottovonn,

Thank you very much for your very kind words. Indeed, I have lately discovered that leather straps match Seiko divers perfectly.

Fortunately 24 mm strap fit well without giving me hard time.

Very Best Regards . . .

Capt... what can I say!

The good the bad and the ugly.jpg

That finger maybe itchy, but by hell it can find some nice watches! That is a very nice piece, just the right amount of that worn in look that I like, and in under the radar, well done!

Nice strap too, I've got a 24mm leather strap on my 7040 and I reckon that squeezed in 24mm works nicely with the cushion case.

:-d:-d:-d!

Dear Stuart, thank you very much for your very kind words.

Indeed, your gorgeous 6309 - 7040 with that awesome strap inspired me and I only copied you! :-d :p I remembered that you also used 24 mm and fit it into your 6309. I did the same. Thank you very much for this inspiration, my friend. :-!

I am lucky so far sneaking under that sensitive and long range radar :-d:think::-x.

Very Best Regards . . .

Dear Phlabrooy,

I can speak a bit of 6 languages. I am like a live dictionary. I visited your beautiful country 8 times when I was working on cargo ships, and was curious about your beautiful Bahasa Malay (Malay Language); so I tried to learn a few words. I am lucky that I can learn languages fast and I don't forget them that easily even though I don't have the opportunity to speak to the native speakers that often.

I still remember enak banget udang (Very delicious shrimp) I used to eat in Indonesia and Malaysia. Your ktichen is definitely very rich and lovely.

Very Best Regards . . .

Dear Arnz23,

Yes, the lug size (Width) is 22 mm, and I was worried a bit about fitting the 24 mm strap into / between 22 mm lugs. I was even planning to cut the strap at both sides where the spring bars go, but I decided to give it a try. The strap I am using is quite soft, and that made it very easy to squeeze it between the lugs.

I also had tried my 22 mm leather strap on the SBCM023 once which have 20 mm lug width, and that fitting was also not bad and worked well.

I hope this info helps you, my friend.

Very Best Regards To You All . . .

Capt,

Thats a great combo of diver on leather you have, never a truer word spoken than leather straps matching Seiko divers perfectly. It's got a lovely used feel going as well.

Enjoy

Hi Capt. Serdal,

Then, I need to find a soft leather strap first. I like the look on your watch.

Thanks my friend.
