Yeah, when I was in grade school. Even then I was teased by the 2 or 3 kids who recognized that it was a woman's watch. Men's watches come in a wide range of sizes. I'm sure there is something small enough to suit you.

I've got a few. Just that I like the ones which look exactly the same, except more compact.

I would not do that for me. I would for my wife. I like'em about 45-47mm, and thick.

Very cool I've got a few of Bill Yao's modded Seikos, when he still did those. These are just as nice, and reasonably priced.

Yep - and it's nice to see Bill doing his own thing now. Nice evolution if you will.

... this is a whole new world for me! I knew people collected watches - and there are many extraordinary examples. I did not know people did modifications to existing designs (a'la mods to cars, motorcycles, guns, etc.)

... that's pretty cool, especially when done so well!

I caught the Seiko bug a little while ago. It has culminated with this, a SBDX001 Marine Master. It is a really impressive watch, easily equal to my Submariner.

I'm not if I'd like the size of that one, but it's a damn nice watch.

$118 shipped. There are a couple options that can add a few bucks. Nice band or insurance. For that price, I can use it as a beater where I wouldn't wear any of my higher end watches.

Have to order from Yobokies. yobokies@yahoo.com.hk

All of these are also from Harold. I know him through the MWR - he's pretty responsive and has a good reputation.

i really like GMT watches - does Seiko do a GMT version of this watch that Yobokies could finesse?

Cheers Barry
