I don't usually go for something like this, but I got it as part of a trade so might as well wear it, Citizen Tsuno 1973 reissue (released in 2018)

GTR Sir Good Morning And Very Nice Tsuno👍⌚️
I remember when they came out and there was a Forum Buzz about them but it died off quite quickly I think because of their price.
My Buddy Jimmy And a Member I think is a fan of them.

Yeah Neilo a lot of people seemed disappointed that it was sold at just under $1,000 (I personally got it for around $600), but to be honest at that price point the overall design, the quality of the straps/bracelets, the sapphire crystal, and the finishing of the case beats anything from Seiko. Since I too have a few 7C46 tunas that are even more expensive than these, I just don't get the lack of interest. Because it's not an automatic perhaps? Well this is just my biased opinion but all current Seiko automatic movements positioned below the 8L35 are nothing special compared to a solar powered chronograph movement like this, which is already more complicated than a Seiko 7T92 for example. There's a reason Citizen priced it that way, and there's a reason Casio still sells expensive G-Shocks by the truckloads: there's a gimmick for everyone

Indiglow is still one of the best night watches, regardless of price. Another old time LCD for me. Cheers all

Good morning Neilo! I've never seen that model. Nice!

qship, great G757. I think we have similar taste in watches

White Casio AW-200 for me today. This is a unique model: I believe it's bronze plated, or somehow bronze coated. It has that great bronze patina. I've never seen another watch with this coating or another of this model

I see a lot of broken ones on eBay which bothers me because they're not cheap. Regardless, One's on my list, but I have a few other things to buy first. Impressive collection!

I was thinking which watch to choose on a Chooseday. Decided on another dose of Vitamin C.

I sold my last G757 (which was in very good condition), because it can (and will) go wrong anytime. Lovely watches, s**t movement.

A very basic movement:
