there's something about the depth of that glossy black, those markers and the handset🤩
Wow, you bought one? Is the pictured watch yours? Are congratulations in order?

no, this is just a pic i found online.
i think it looks great, but I’m not hunting for one.
Right, because you’re hunting for the mysterious Tuna can, right?

not specifically, but checking out a ‘full size’ Tuna is one of the things i have in mind. i bought a completely different watch this evening.
Wow, what did you buy? Do tell! 😉

With tremendous inspiration from this thread, I’ve decided to target the SCVF007 as my next Seiko acquisition. I need one of these in my life.

nice model SF. i prefer the ‘without red’ SARB personally though, and the green dial has a distinctiveness that stands out.. not sure if you clocked one on one of the ‘watch boxes’ images I uploaded.

Good point. The green one may be more “true to form” for the Alpinist experience. I’m still doing research and deciding. I will be posting updates as I progress in my journey! Thank you for the inspiration, @planteria!

haha no problem. i have still not started to wear my Alpinist.. i need to get to order a new strap for it, and then will give it some wrist time.
not to the same extent of course, but if an iconic GMT has blue-red ‘Pepsi’ bezel an Alpinist has a green sunburst dial and gold numerals and hour markers, even though in the latter case that wasn’t the original.

The "cathedral" handset should also be part of the requirements. Of the 3 standard colors: black, cream, and green, only the green and cream do it for me.
