Analog quartz SND219P1 w/ Cal. 7T92 movement acquired brand spankin' new with box, book and tag from a Canadian dealer ( at a great price, too ).

I really like my Alpha Panda PN but given that it's a mechanical with a screw-down crown it's a bit of a drawer queen and worn only on sorta risk-free occasions.

But I wanted a daily wear Panda just because I like the look. Looked around and found this model...and since it was about time I got a Seiko...

When I purchased this I expected I'd wait till it arrived and then decide on a leather strap...but I sized the bracelet today and even though it isn't solid link, it's very comfortable...so I might just leave it like it is. We'll see...

And everybody who has mentioned how much fun it is to watch the glorious spin of the 1/20 wheel at the top...?

oooooh YEAH!!!!!

You are true WIS..,you give equal opportunity to all brands.

I doubt you will ever be disappointed with this watch.
And I hope it doesn't steer you of your chosen collecting path; CMWs

...any more than my Mido, or HMT, or Casios or Boctok or Moranbong did...

...but here's the method to my madness: I wanted the daily wear Panda and one more affordable general wear and somewhat modern non-Chinese watch for my "wear most of the time" collection (probably a two-tone sorta-Sub of some variety, or maybe a Seiko Monster or some such) and then, according to my budget, all my spare $$$ are headed to the "get me to Shijiazhuang and Taihang" envelope so I expect to be buying no more watches after the next arrival until I get to China.

Besides Shijiazhuang, this is where I'm headed...these two destinations are the only two places on my bucket list.

I want to have some $$$ saved so I can get some vintage watches first hand when I get to China, and have a whale of a good time while I'm there

(In the meantime, I've put away a few spare dollars for straps, and if I get watch-bored between now and then, a strap change is gonna have to do). I don't party much, and other than my watch hobby, I live pretty simply so---even though I know nothing makes God laugh like telling him your plans--that's my plan and I'm stickin' to it. So, until I get to China, then, my Chinese watch collection is really as good as its gonna get. And that's okay--I'm pretty happy with it just as it is

That is a nice looking watch, Ron, and as you said, that spinning hand is a bit hypnotic.
