Show me Your 7549´s

I am planning on getting me a nice 7549 driven Seiko diver so any picture of Your 7549 would be inspirational for my quest to get one :)

Thanks for the great pics, Jim 8)

With te "SQ" on the dial, I trust it to be the international version with english/spanish day/date wheel ?

I think the finish used on the shrouds was perhaps changed at some point ?? during production. Mine, from June '82 has a matte finish such as may have been produced by blasting with a very fine media. I'm fairly certain I've seen some other examples of the matte finish on the older 7549s.

Re: Show me Your 7549´s

Thanks, guys. It's not NOS, but is a very lightly used example. I bought it from the original owner a few years back after he had it completely serviced. It generally makes it into the rotation a couple of times a month, but I make sure not to wear it while working on the car or doing yard work. ;-)

Very nice pics. Would love to see more. :)
I was wondering how to tell if its got kanji or en/spanish wheels?
I've got one coming but need to learn more on these babies.

Thanks.
Dave.

It has Spanish/English day wheel. I forgot to say that earlier after JoepeteJokla asked.
