I bought a Golgo 13 SBBN023 when it was released last year but have yet to post pictures. I have posted cellphone pictures of a specimen that belongs to a friend though.
So, here are some quick pictures of my SBBN023. This is my third SBBN model after the 015 and 017.
I had the opportunity to see this Golgo 13 limited edition Tuna Can last Saturday. This piece belongs to a fellow collector who purchased it directly from Japan. From what I understand, he purchased it from one of the sellers on Japanese site, Rakuten.
This watch is very much the same as the SBBN017 except for the black coating and red accents. I also noted that the shroud has glossy surface instead of brushed or matte surfaces like the SBBN015 and 017.
Here are some cellphone shots of the watch.
I had the opportunity to handle this Seiko 1000m shrouded quartz diver that was made for the international market. This watch is not the same as the current Prospex model SBBN013 because does not have the word “Marinemaster” on its dial. Is it the same as the previous Prospex model, SBBN011 in every aspect? I don’t have the SBBN011 so here are some pictures of the S23619J1 so you can see for yourself.
I added a SBBN017 to my collection recently. I normally buy automatic watches but the Seiko Tuna Cans are very hard to resist. One thing about quartz watches is that they are very convenient to use. Unlike automatic watches, I don’t have to set the time on quartz watches when I want to wear them.
Seiko released a 7C46 Tuna Can with a blue shroud to as one of the commemorative watches for its 130th anniversary. Thanks to Jimbojeow, I was able to see this piece in person.
Here’s a quick photo review of the watch. Photos are taken using my smartphone camera.
