Just out of interest which of the above would you prefer if you just had the choice of only having one of them ?
and why ?

The only reason i ask i have been thinking of selling or trading a 6105 to get a "new" watch.

Shrouded Vintage Tuna - all the goodness of a 6-series vintage diver with THE classic high torque quartz movement.

6105 - GREAT vintage Seiko
Sumo - THE choice in value for money ... it really is that well finished
Tuna - SO practical, durable and reliable

Get all three. They will compliment each other very well ;)

If there can be only one:

6105- for me the vintage watches have the character. Of course if you meant by Tuna any of the shrouded divers, I could go for the 7549-701x or the 6159-701x.

I agree with Seikomatic.

6105 for keep sake (and staring)
Sumo for daily wearer

Tuna can is fun. But somehow, the crown, screw thread on tube, time setting, etc, just don't feel right. Will be a nice display watch of course. But the 1k plus price tag doesn't allow that.
I used to have 3 of them. Sold all of them for the reasons mentioned above.

John i suppose im like a few on this forum that i have the benefit of owning all 3 watches mentioned.
The Sumo is one of the most big bang watches for the buck.
The Tuna is one of the most sought after Divers.
The 6105 is one of the most highly regarded of the vintage divers.

You need all 3 my friend im afraid.

The decision will only ever be yours my friend.

If you own a 6105 diver in good condition and with all OEM parts, I would keep it if I were you. I'd surely also enjoy a Tuna, but (unspoiled) 6105s are harder to find while SBBN015 Tunas are still in production (expensive, of course...). I'm not too crazy about the Sumo, compared to the other two.

If you already have, say...a 6309, which can be your "cool vintage classic auto," you need to take the leap across the canyon and get a quartz Tuna. No need to pay $1k for a new SBBN015. Both the vintage 7549-7010 and it's modern brother SBBN007 will give you the chunky wrist presence that you're looking for.

I can't comment on the Sumo, having never seen one in person, but it looks a little plain jane in comparison to some of my current family of vintage divers, despite its value and features...
