This past weekend, a friend and colleague came to Germany for work and threw me a real surprise by wearing his newest acquisition. I remember reading about the titanium Landmaster Spring Drive in 2012 when it was released. Most people didn't think so highly of it. Let me say...in person, this is a gorgeous watch. It's light, the dial is fantastically detailed with a "step down" and a rather restrained power reserve indicator.

Also, while large, the lugs curve down and create a nice fit for a small wrist.

The best thing is that one can get into a Spring Drive new for less than $2k...at least at the Japanese camera shops.

Some shots and a little comparison to another famous Seiko with crowns on top. Enjoy!!

These are really nice and wear smaller than their large size would suggest.

I have the Miura LE version and other than color and engravings it is the same.



Does the SBDB005 have a signed crown?

Love that model. Love the Spacewalk a bit more but this one is so much more affordable and will come to my collection some day :)

That's 100% pure watch porn- I love the fuel gauge.
