Is this a re-issue of the S23611? The dial code should be E011 HR 2 according to Ablogtowatch.

I've pre-ordered mine and was told should be here by Sept. This will go well with my Emperor Golden Tuna SBDX014. Can't wait!

I've never tried a Tuna on my wrist. I should probably do that soon, then think about getting one of these depending on the Hong Kong MSRP.

It looks nice here: https://www.seikowatches.com/global-...978recreation/

I've owned many, all quartz powered. Incredibly comfortable watches despite the large size, because of the complete lack of lugs. The Gold Tuna is a real beast, though, and really too big for my small wrist (6,5'' more or less).

The SBB007 was perfect on me.

I'm 7,25" so there is a least some hope for a good fit

I don't know that is my wrist size and the Gold Tuna felt to big. I like the Darth even better but it also is too big. I liked the 015 the best.

Bumping this thread just to show some Titanium Nitride (TiN) coated drill bits, for those who think the Golden Tuna is gold plated

PS: I ended up buying one for myself (7C46-7008 from 2001), and the fit is good and comfortable!
