This poor Puck was running several minutes fast and was`nt winding at all due to a bent pawl lever that would slip up and over the pawl wheel. Did a relume on it while fixing the rest. This one has got to be the best I`ve seen, the bezel is NOS, the shroud has a few metallic scratches but zero dings or pockets of missing ceramic layer. And she`s now running at +/-4/day give or take. Shes going to run good,

But OMG, what a TUMOR! Like having a barnacle on your wrist. 52MM X 16 Thick!

I know Seiko got with the program and made a whole slew of re-editions that copy this original design, and you know what? There is nothing like the original! What a Puck! 36000 BPH goodness that runs like Seiko. In a chunk of exotic metal that resembles a diving bell.

Why do you think Seiko made this pro diver to those specs?? at that time? Over engineered? or just what Tokunaga san thought appropriate for its pro use??

daily wearer at work again. It'll get to go down on Los Angeles and Virgina class fast attack submarines on an almost daily basis again. Had to let her go for service though. I miss her.

She gets a little jealous knowing that both class of submarines have a crush depth greater than her WR rating. I console her by telling her I'll wear her on a daily basis as long as I can. My 6309-7049 get's the nights and the weekends, but I don't tell her that.

one of these days I'll have an original 600m Tuna
like all original tuna's including the lume with the yellow patina, but I just can't stand it myself. I like the new, original, off the shelf look.

The bezel on this works like a dream and a few people have ask me where they can purchase one of these. I ask one person how old he thought it was after he looked at it and played with the bezel a bit. He replied based on the slight scratches and bezel operation it couldn't be more than a year old. I chuckled and told him how old it really was. He was in total disbelief.

This historic tune and my all original (including lume that is still white) 6309-7049 will be two keepers for the rest of my life unless something unbelievably crazy happens.
