Default Now for something completely different....

These pictures just appeared on an FB Seiko group. I assume that the time displayed here is 7.59...
and here, 8.16.....


Never seen anything like this before... Looks very cult JDM to me.....

SBPA005 I think. These e-ink solars are really cool, but I don't want to pay the exorbitant price they fetch...

Edit: I was mistaken about the price, which was for the higher positioned SDGA models. But still, these are about USD 450.

Nice watches, is the display always on or just shown when a button is pushed...?

If it's E-ink then always on I'm thinking. E-ink displays only use power when they change.

Isn't that one of those super cool "Golgo 13" watches? (I want one, very expensive)

No, same technology though. I found a review of the actual watch HERE, posted seven years ago......
