Nice. Are the hands black or is that the lighting?

Nice catch on the crown Jim.. it's a "gear style" crown, like the Sumo crown.

Hands are just stock oem SkxA35 hands, silver frames but always seem to look like black frames in photos.

May be making some changes to it as time goes by.

Strap in photo is an older genuine Tuna strap, but it broke shortly after the photo was taken...no damage to watch..fell off my wrist into a soft lined drawer as I was reaching in to grab a different shirt.

Now have it on the newest version of the Tuna dive strap.. soft silicone with textured underside, new style metal keeper with old style buckle and round adjustment holes instead of rectangular {Srp}.

Anyway, will be wearing throughout the week for a change of pace from my other daily pieces.

Best,

Mike

Mike you say new tuna style strap, are you describing the new Solar Arnie ReIssue? I love mine!

Welcome to the club. I've always fancied it a Yellow Fin Tuna. Mine is A35 on top, 6309 under the hood...shroud is oem Seiko.

Beautiful! That yellow dial really pops.

Have a case on it’s way to John as we speak for the TST conversion, seeing this makes the wait even harder
