Congratulations. Great watch and it wears very well. I liked my black and silver version so much I bought the Pepsi version to go with it. If the black and gold becomes available through the AD network I will buy it.

Congratulations! My local AD got mine in a week ago, quite unexpectedly. The Arnie wears very nicely for such a large watch.

What straps are you guys using, the one supplied is pretty long! Could probably put the watch on my leg

I got my SNJ027 almost 3 weeks ago, and it's not been off my wrist, I love mine, wear yours in good health.

I have been wearing the seiko strap, bit long, but it's not bothering me, plus the strap is surprisingly comfy.

I am looking at an uncle seiko waffle strap though, just to have another strap option.

Lots of people rate the Uncle Seiko waffle, Iím in the uk though so not available here.

The strap is actually comfortable, the watch wears more comfortably thank my turtle surprisingly.

Many thanks, managed to get one, 10% off so not bad, really nice watch.

Is it still waterproof with the pushers unscrewed? (As long as I donít push them underwater)

Probably an answer I can read in the manual but being a bloke and lazy I donít read manuals!

Moggo,

Yep it's still water proof with the pushers out.
The valves which give the watch its water proof rating are located inside the watch.
The screw down design of the pushers is to prevent the pushers being accidentally pushed while diving.
