Cool stuff Rob, life doesn’t suck for you !!
Man, I had two tsunamis; a silver sunburst and a black dial with beadblasted case and smoked sapphire. That case is closer to that of 6309-7040 then the srp reissue.

They're a good micro brand and that's a good looking watch :)


Thank you! I think of them as making a watch that Seiko should be doing. Terrific craftsmanship, great attention to detail, a well regulated Seiko movement, etc. I’m a huge fan of the original Blancpain Fifty Fathoms and I think Borealis did a great job of honoring those design elements and still developing their own execution.

What makes it famous Larry ?

well, it's famous in the city i guess. lol.



here's a quickie from wikipedia:


Coit Tower is a 210-foot (64 m) tower in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood of San Francisco, California, offering panoramic views over the city and the bay. The tower, in the city's Pioneer Park, was built between 1932 and 1933 using Lillie Hitchcock Coit's bequest to beautify the city of San Francisco. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 29, 2008.[1]
The art deco tower, built of unpainted reinforced concrete, was designed by architects Arthur Brown, Jr. and Henry Howard. The interior features fresco murals in the American Social Realism style, painted by 25 different on-site artists and their numerous assistants, plus two additional paintings installed after creation off-site.
Also known as the Coit Memorial Tower, it was dedicated to the volunteer firemen who had died in San Francisco's five major fires.[3] Although an apocryphal story claims that the tower was designed to resemble a fire hose nozzle[4] due to Coit's affinity with the San Francisco firefighters of the day, the resemblance is coincidental

As an essential government employee during a state quarantine, the only two places you’ll find me are at home or at work. But for variety, here’s me last week in my office in Virginia facing my desk:

My father-in-law gave me his father in law’s Longines 14k auto for my birthday this week. I think it’s called a Mystery dial watch. It’s freshly serviced with a new brown leather strap. Not a diver but really cool and quite sentimental.
