I think it is already called a Tuna Can, just like the original one from the 70's and the SBBN007. This one is almost entirely an SBBN007 anyway. if anything it's a 3rd gen tuna can.

Tuna 3G?
That would make the SBBN007 a Two-na

All kidding aside, I think just plain Tuna works fine for me.

Sorry, Charlie! Seiko don't want tunas with names. Seiko wants... well, we don't know what Seiko wants. But for now, you're just a tuna.

I prefer tuna.
Darth and Emperor are special and distinct, so it deserves it IMO.
Weren't people calling them pucks also? As a Canuck, I like that, but still prefer tuna over it.

My pleasure, Jay. You have to be of a "certain age" to remember that one... ;)

Wish I owned one. I think when I do finally buy one I will name it after the Bigeye tuna. Bigeye is one species in Hawaiian known as the very yummy 'ahi. So either Bigeye or 'ahi will be my nickname for my tuna can, whever I get around to owning one that is.

How about just Seiko Tuna? Why mess with what works?


Please stop giving 'nick names' to watches.
Its bad enough this is a geeky hobby.

How about the obvious? Since it's the first one with "Marine Master" on the dial.... "Marine Master Tuna"
Because it isn't, the SBBN007 was also branded as a Marine Master (even if not on the dial).

I agree with kevin. Why force some hokie nickname on a solid watch that already has one (Tuna Can). If you want to identify it versus the pother tuna cans, then just say which generation it is. No need to force a nick name on to of another nickname.
