A recent acquisition led me to studying Seiko watches in general and naturally ending up here. I've had a total three Seikos over the past 8 years, two of which that I still own.

I started with the omnipresent SKX007. It looked great and kept accurate time (amazing +7s/day). Once paired up with a super oyster bracelet, replacing the stock jubilee, it was all business. Regrettably, I sold the watch after acquiring an omega 2254. I do miss the round hour markers on the 007.

Later on, I acquired the first of the two 6139, a 6010. The crystal is quite scratched up, and the day wheel doesn't work quite right, but it was inexpensive and carries its own charm.

Last month, I found a 6139-6030 in good condition. I love the orange accents, the retro case shape, and its overall sporty look. I plan to write a mini review soon.

I also run a site called watchrecon on the side to feed my watch addictions.

Unfortunately since I'm too new to the forum, I'm not able to post images, but hopefully this problem will solve itself soon! Thanks all.
