Martin, awesome tunas, I've never seen these ever. Truly AWESOME!


I think we need a tuna diver's reference library. So many tunas, would love to know them all to keep an eye out for.


Thanks for sharing Martin, great divers. :)


Cheers, Dave.

Hi there, my brother! Good to see you here, again, Luka! The forum gets better with your awesome posts, man!

Your exemplar also looks like fresh from the SUWA assembly line.....is that the one from the guy who bought it in Las Palmas?

Did you have to perform any restoration in the piece? Any replacements, like gaskets, batteries, xtal, etc? It's almost too perfect for a 1976 watch, bro....tell us the secret! ;)

Wear that beauty in good health, Lucien!
Kind regards from your friend

I found this tuna can in Belgium, about a 120 miles from me. I found it after a good tip from a watchfriend. The owner had bought it in Las Palmas about 30 years earlier and had worn the watch for a day or 2. Silly big thing with that piece of rubber sticking out.... :))

The owner had a new battery fitted a few weeks before I got it and the watch looked NOS. Battery replacement costed about 120 usd. I opened the watch to be sure....indeed, Seiko battery inside, all fresh gaskets, not a dust particle to be seen, not even a sign from a screwdriver, very good work.
Still in love with it. :-*
