When I read &#039;Skul Dial Company&#039; I just think it could have been a lot worse...


Don&#039;t know if I would have described it as carbon fibre though.

just noticed how the seiko name is right in the middle of the dial, which means it must be printed on the reverse side of the glass and not on dial. at least the crystals will be easy to ID for these

To the uninitiated, these are the most collectible of all the 7T34s. Sottsass Associati designed them, and although painful to the senses, they are limited and expensive.

Would I buy them? Hell, yeah! (But not at $1000 a pop)..

I can understand why they&#039;re limited! In this neck of the woods, the word would be "prohibited". H***, they make Tiger&#039;s picture look good . . . and that&#039;s saying something!!
