^ ^ ^ I've never seen a lumed chapter ring before . . . Super Cool
Nice that you have your late buddy's watch and the fading / patina that you know comes from years at sea not to mention the Irma chapter, that makes very special story.My old friend Mike's (RIP) ghost pepsi 009 on the USGI strap that it spent 15 hard years at sea on. This watch spent 10 days submerged after hurricane Irma until his boat could be raised. I think it is a great example of how tough these watches are, it has never been opened or worked on.

Not to be O/T, but that is one I happen to have.Funny how the case designator -7020 was carried over from the 7002- to the 7S26. They are about as close as you can get with the new ones adding the day complication
Yes the blue dial 7002-7020 is RARE and BEAUTIFUL!🏆
And the titanium is highly polished where the SKX007 stainless steel has the same polish. I thought SEIKO master craftsmen used Zaratsu to accomplish this feat.^ ^ ^ Another exceptional Mod To my eye it looks like there are sharper lines to the case - more angled - and I like it. Sort of reminds me of the Original Titanium Samurai's with their sharper case lines.
