My initial thoughts

It wears smaller than the stated size. I have a 6.5 inch wrist.

The green color is on the dark side. Not flamboyant indoors, very pretty in sunlight.

With the bracelet, itís a little heavy. Thinking about a Crafter Blue strap in green, currently sold out.

Thanks for the compliments, itís a nice watch.

The crafter blues are very nice and well made. My only minor complaint is the keeper sometimes pinches my arm when I slide the end of the strap into it. Takes a little practice to avoid.

The tip of the second hand is very unusual. Zoom in on the pictures.

Got my SPB103 from a jewelry store in NYC for $695.00 new in box with all tags, boxes, manuals, stamped warranty card.

Gorgeous green. Built like a tank. Beautiful case lines and overall design. Very impressed. Wish the clasp was a bit nicer, but not a major complaint.

Got it just in time for vacation next week. It will be my only watch on the trip from ocean swimming to dining out..

Haha! I will.

I'm going to be in Florida at a beachfront resort with a handful of buddies for a guys' week out, and I saw the weather and it's supposed to be in the low 60's and overcast Hoping it'll change so I can enjoy the outdoors at the pool and ocean and get some good pictures in the sun.

Here it is now. Love the flat sapphire.

A little too olive for me against the emerald dial and bezel insert. Itís a nice fit though. Iím looking for a thick tan leather strap to get that British tan and green feel

Kermit version?

Is it possible to get the green bezel and black dial, like a SEIKO Kermit?

Maybe if you buy the black dial reference and find an OEM green bezel on Ebay or other source.

If you like the look but don’t want to spend the money you can always mod a SKX007 with a green bezel that come in multiple varieties even one that is ceramic. Throw on a StrapCode oyster style bracelet.

Or, an Orient Mako XL CEM75003B has that combo from the factory for $150.

Thanks. Itís just natural light coming in from the window. Direct sunlight and itís emerald. Indirect and itís more hunter green. Overcast and itís a darker black-like green.

Very enjoyable to wear and look at. Very pleased. In 36 hours out of the box itís 6 seconds slow. Not bad.

Bought my SPB103 with full intention of putting a Crafter Blue green strap on. The bracelet just doesn’t cut it for me. Great beach/Hawaii/fishing/beater watch.
