Hey, Jay....

The SBBN011 - 7c46 quartz powered = DARTH TUNA
The SBDX011 - 8L35 auto powered = EMPEROR TUNA or DARTH EMPEROR (if I'm not mistaken, the first person to nickname it is my good friend Shannon Spence a.k.a. Spring Diver).

Hope that helps, bro. ;)

Yep...SBDX011 "Emperor Tuna" is the only automatic Tuna currently for sale. However, the new Field Masters 200m 6R15 are shrouded like Tunas w/ compass bezel insert.
Maybe Seiko will make a version with a diver insert ;D




Cheers
Shannon

Shannon it's gonna be a touch decision for me on the next watch. Emperor Tuna is at the top of my list, however I'm craving a Grand Seiko. Been lusting over the SBGH001. Emperor Tunas movement is 8L35 and I have it in my newly aquired MM300... A Grand Seiko would give me the chance to own a movement above the 8L35... I dunno thinking out loud... The GS is not a Tuna though... Hmmm... Either way I have plenty of time to think. The next purchase is a tear or more away... Ha ha.

At 200m WR (and w/o even the diver designation), not much of a Tuna. :(

Yes a GS is not a tuna, but... ever consider this GS diver. ;)
This has become a new grail for me.
