which specific model are you asking about? an actual Tuna can, or one of the other shrouded divers? Most of them are quartz powered and they come in both vintage and modern.

which specific one are you asking about.

Ok, are you looking for a vintage 7549-7010; a modern (but discontinued) SBBN007; or the current SBBN015/SBBN017/SBBN019 (that last one being a limited edition).

I suspect you might be asking about the SBBN007.

I've been seeing them trade anywhere from a bit over $600 to around the mid $700s of late depending on condition (most being slightly used to perfect), and whether they are on a strap or on a bracelet (and which bracelet). There have been some price exceptions in both directions of course, but that's where I'm seeing the average. What can I say, prices jumped after it was discontinued, and the replacement model was not so drastically different or better to make people line up to buy it at it's much higher price. As a result, collector attention has stayed focused on the SBBN007 and prices have remained high. I still remember when they could be had new in the mid $300s.

Maybe others can chime in.

I've been fishing for a Tuna too (SBBN007) and have seen prices anywhere from $450 to $950 for that particular model. All are supposedly "excellent condition" or "like new". As with anything I think you just have to do the leg work and jump in when you're comfortable.
I have yet to find the right deal but my line is in the water.

Buy a sbbn017 from Seiya for 7 or 8 bills. Or he sells sbbn015 which has MM clasp on the bracelet and a black bezel insert for 1100 bills. I got a headache looking for sbbn007. They're rare at 500, but common at 850 and above. I paid 748 shipped from Seiya for my sbbn017 and the only difference is it says marinemaster and has a signed crown.

There was a special offer a few months back for the SBBN015 at $800 IIRC from Higuchi.
Of course, by the time I went to place the order, the offer was gone...

The SBBN015 sports hands with a brushed finish, whereas the SBBN007's hands have a polished finish. Also, as Isthmus pointed out, the dials are slightly different. Can you tell me the movement-case number for the SBBN015? It's 7C46-7011 for the SBBN007.

Best,
Myles

Seiya and Higuchi only specify 7c46 for sbbn015.

Actually I bought sbbn017 and it sort of killed my aspirations for sbbn007 because its sooo similiar, but now I realize its killing my aspirations for sbbn015 as well.

Actually I want sbbn015 badly. Currently trying to work out if 015 is needed since I have 017. Being repetative here, but 017 is locking me out of 007 and 015...
