I wasn't expecting this watch to arrive at 7:15pm last nite, but rather tonite Tuesday.....Japanese efficiency! This is the 6R15 version, the same movement Noah used in his Tsunami, so I felt comfortable handling it: auto, handwinder, 50 or so power reserve. Sapphire crystal, 38mm to 42mm to crown. Screwdown crown and 200m rated. For a dressy watch look, it sure has tool specs! The second crown at the 4 spot moves the inner compass chapter ring.

The brand new leather strap was very stiff and strapping it on the wrist was uncomfortable, so I put the watch/strap on one of my watch stands over nite to form a bend near the lugs. This always works for me with new stiff leather bands.

Having won this watch at 26,800yen with no other bids was a steal. I happened to check Seiya San site selling the same watch at over 50,000yen!
