Default The SDGA001 fell off my radar for years - one finally popped up

Not a safe queen for sure, though it's a nice break from my black face divers . It's solar, radiowave, perfectly legible, slim with a pretty interesting bracelet - maybe a keeper lol

I've never seen one of those in person, but I simply love the subtle styling cues it borrows from the 06LC with the 3 front buttons. Congrats on a great buy!

I generally don't like many digitals but this one grabs me. Super legible elegant styling.

Congrats !

It looks appropriately retro-futuristic for the modern age.

Very cool tech and well done capturing the alignment of “1”!

Very unique and interesting piece. I like it in a retro 80s way. Thanks for sharing.

By coincidence I picked up one of these a couple of weeks ago, and like yours, mine has been well worn.

They've finally dropped enough in price to become relatively affordable, but I've wanted one of these ground breaking watches since they came out, especially this model.

The only slight draw back with mine is that it's only just wearable as the bracelet is a little short and it didn't come with any spare links.

The bracelet on mine was also short, with no spare links. The bracelet extender fits well.

Yes they were an expensive piece. If they have come down in price now, I’ll have to keep an eye out. The e-ink display looks great.

Do you have any more information on this bracelet extender you mention or even a link to one?
I'm not familiar with extenders and butterfly clasps.

We had a bit of discussion about this on WS a year or so ago. The watches I get from YJ are generally on bracelets that are too short. If no further adjustment is possible at the clasp, I fit an extender. They come in different widths to suit most bracelet clasp ends. I've bought a number from an Ebay seller Red Rooster UK.

I think you might have bought that one from me. Enjoy it!
