Never seen one Mario but I like it and love the case back.

Why do guys scratch or mark the case backs ?

I think this year will be the year I have to get a MM

Interesting, I have never seen that model before.

It does not appear in any of the JDM catalogues but this is not unusual for a LE model.

Surprising there is no serial number or LE numbering at all.

That's really nice. Just googled Yuzo Kayama and got a very smooth Japanese crooner. Just wondering: anyone know what the 45 years anniversary is? 45 years since the 6217 came out or 45 years since Yuzo first went diving?

I do like that blue dial.

First time I have seen that one.

And I can't recall any mention back in 2005 of it's release like today's every month there is a new "limited edition"

As beat as that one is it belonged to someone in the inner circle of the issuing entity who wore it daily since 2005.

Default LE Marine Master

This piece will be highly sought after in a few years. Very nice.

Bit like this one - no mention of LE or Le numbering. but 1 of 300.

I was thinking that to. I think the main culprit is stainless steel bracelets. When people take off watches and put them on a tables etc. Maybe we should make a vinyl case back protector to keep our case backs scratch free. I'm guessing rubber strap divers will not suffer this unless you place the watch on a sandpaper surface.

How do you stop this otherwise?
