Recently got my TST back from Guy, following a facelift (for the watch, not Guy). Couldn’t be happier. Thanks for the great work, Guy, as usual.

I've had this one on the "to do" list for some time now...another in the series of Blackfin tst's.

The case was machined for me by John Bentley and then I had the case and shroud coated in black TiN.

Bezel and insert are original parts from the classic 007 Tuna. The matching machine finish extended crown is from one of John's limited production runs.

Dial and hands are from an early 1000m black shrouded diver, movement on this one is a quartz 7548 and the crystal is a flat sapphire with clear ar from Alex at crystaltimes.

Thanks to John for the excellent machine work on this one and for making the special extended crown!

Very nice, Mike. Came together well. The black TiN on the shroud ties it all together.

Still lovin' my TST

Given my absence plus what I suspect are lost pictures account Photobucket ransomware, thought I'd post a picture. Thanks again John!

Been over a year since I’ve posted. Gone back to my Seikos after wearing a Garmin for said year. Was at work last night, and noticed I was using a Japanese spanner with my Seiko in shot, thought I’d get a pic of them both getting royally abused. Only new screws for the shroud as I lost one at work, still the same plastic shroud John kindly donated as well as the case.
Daily beaters indeed.

As far as I know, despite the frequent h, ve group of TST watches first appeared ely happy with my first one...

A 6309-7040 case, sterilised al, can't remember which style insert - quite a mix of parts, but that's the beauty of the TST... So many options.

Proper Tuna Rubber to soon from Seiya San - on a NATO for now...
