I present to you the mighty SBDX001 otherwise known as "THE" Marinemaster. I know there are many MM's but to me the SBDX001 will always be "THE" Marinemaster wink.gif...

A naughty note from the seller so that it doesn't get held up in customs...apologies accepted my friend happy.gif...

Anyway it is the second time I bought this watch. The first one I had I sold to buy a PO. Sadly the seller of the PO was just a heartless scammer and he just stole my money without ever sending the watch. After many sleepless nights I put myself together again...I bought and sold another couple PO's and after 2 years I bought another new SBDX001. This time no swiss watch will take its place...I promise...After all no swiss diver watch for just over 2000USD can match this watch IMHO..

I am chuffed to death with this watch, of course I wish it had a sapphire crystal and a signed crown but it still is a superb piece. Of course in true Seiko diver fashion it is currently running at +9seconds/day everyday in any position. Of course given the pedigree of this movement I am still amazed by the lack of fine adjustment from the factory. The fact that it keeps the exact same rate makes me think that it only needs a minor regulation to get to run to within say +-3 seconds a day...but the Japanese never fail to amaze...





Hope you liked the small unveiling happy.gif...
