All is Lost - Robert Redford with blue Nato on SKX175 (SKX009) Finally got around to see this great movie from one of my all-time favourite actors Robert Redford (Three Days of the Condor/ Spygame/Sneakers/Havana/The last Castle and many others). Movie full of fast watch-action flashes: a Man, the Sea… and his watch. Thought it could be an IWC Aquatimer on a blue Nato – too expensive again, although it wasn´t… http://watchesinmovies.info/tag/seiko/ and one clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=MiQOQ-Vyabg It´s a Seiko SKX175 divers, the US version of the same model SKX009. While the SKX173 has squared markers, the SKX175 has rounded markers and is identical to the SKX009 except for all of the country of manufacture labelling. To me the markers still look square. As I was going to order a day-date Steinhart alternative sometime from Creation Watches to EU anyway, just checked availability and got the last one (sold out now) on a jubilee bracelet for EUR 133,- shipped with DHL in 4 days – great price also! Really blown by the affordable price You can get a good-looking, true waterproof and lumibrite diver gen with fast shipping and in-house-built-movement. This should arrive by Thu. and than hang in customs for another 3-4 weeks, estimate a 30%-35% tax and fees, let´s see the outcome. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yy-wpE7aIc These are the specs: Seiko Automatic Diver SKX009K2 SKX009K SKX009. Take this Seiko Diver as technology housed in a fortress to withstand the bumpy sides of recreation. It’s stylishly rugged and bears the Seiko hallmarks allover; from the Hardlex crystal to the LumiBrite paint - to say the least, it shows being sophisticated is not against being strong and resilient. You can check that once down to 660 feet under water, if you must.Features:Type: DiversMovement: AutomaticCalibre: 7S26Crystal: HardlexDial: Dark BlueBezel: Red and blue unidirectional bezelCase: Stainless steelCase diameter: 42mmCase thickness: 13mmWater resistance: 200metersBracelet width: 22mmBracelet/Strap: Stainless steel bracelet - See more at: http://www.creationwatches.com/products/seiko-divers-60/seiko-automatic-divers-200m-jubilee-bracelet-skx009k2-skx009-712.html#sthash.43F8FRoU.dpuf backdraws: no hand-winding, no hacking seconds, could gain/loose 20 secs a day As all this was amazingly un-complicated and fast until now just wanted to share.
