Default The TST collective collection to date...

As far as I know, despite the frequent appearance on WRUW and the occasional thread celebrating an individual watch, we have not had a thread celebrating the collective group of TST watches created since John's marvelous creation first appeared 12 or so months past.
I am only a recent member of the TST clan, but I must say, I am extremely happy with my first one...
The craftsmanship that has gone into this mod is to be applauded - the watch is just perfect. The TST idea opens so many possibilities for quality automatic tunas, as well as quartz mods such as my own.

So, to my particular watch...

A 6309-7040 case, sterilised case-back, 7548 movement, Darth tuna dial, can't remember which hands!, black kanji d/d rings, 6105 crystal and a sumo style insert - quite a mix of parts, but that's the beauty of the TST... So many options.

Proper Tuna Rubber to be ordered soon from Seiya San - on a NATO for now...





I have already planned my next TST... But while I am slowly stockpiling the appropriate parts... Let's see yours !

I had been thinking someone should get this thread started.
I have this yellow/black themed 7002

and a 7548 based one.

Great stuff guys...
The only Stealth TST to date George? Very nice - what is the finish on that shroud?
Jimmy - love that orange dial, and Mr S. Kid that Pepsi TST is close to my next planned Mod - so long as I don't win the bronze shroud! I reckon on starting with a 7c43 Pepsi and going from there...

Everyone asks if a Seikoholic can stick to just one watch.

For me, if push came to shove, this would be my "one watch"

Cheers
