#TBT Seiko 6159-7010 TunaNormally Michael Stockton takes care of our weekly recurring TBT feature, but resulting from extensive traveling he was struggle to recently. To maintain this installment of TBT in keeping with him, I'd like to talk about the Seiko 6159-7010 Tuna that I purchased a few weeks ago. Lately, Mike is blaming me for his shopping spree concerning vintage Speedmaster replica watches. I actually delivered his latest (as far as I'm sure that is) to him in Frankfurt two weeks ago, More than likely he'll dedicate a TBT or Speedy Tuesday to that watch. Because blames me for learning to be a Speedmaster collector (or hoarder), I've got to blame him to me buying all these Seikos over the last two years.After finding myself wearing the Seiko Marinemaster 300M (SBDX001) a whole lot panerai new york watches , I was also consumed by the Seiko Tuna, or Puck, or just reference 6159-7010 after looking at his article for this piece (his comparison relating to the original Tuna and also the then current model is found here) . It's not a pretty watch, rather quirky, however would point out that also costs the Omega Seamaster PloProf one example is. Proper tool replica watches (divers replica watches in cases like this) that were built to deliver the results, and undertake it well. In the intervening time, I've got to declare that the Seiko 6159-7010 Tuna is often a beautiful watch, as I think the Mercedes Benz G500 is really a beautiful car. It's not at all, even so the appreciation and admiration control and result into finding these items beautiful. Seiko TunasNormally I tend to wear replica watches that happen to be less quirky, while there is always room for any quirky Ploprof or Tuna of course. But in my opinion, it's still a lot of money to invest on the watch you'll find yourself wearing just every so often. My trip to Seiko in Japan (read the here) unleashed an uncontrollable desire to own one of the Tuna models. When i first set my thoughts using a Seiko SDBX0011, but quickly learned that it absolutely was discontinued and replaced by the SDBX013 and SBDX014 Marinemaster 1000 replica watches which were introduced in Basel. After finding the developer in the original Seiko 6159-7010 Tuna, Mr Ikuo Tokonaga, I became confident which i needed a minimum of one in the Tuna models. His story is incredible plus the research that entered this watch just amazing. I can't imagine that it was a profitable watch inside the first decades of the existence.So still in Japan, I went out searching for the SBDX011, which simply wasn't simple to find. The state run channels already cleared up their stock, and gray market shops like BIC Camera and Jack Road in Tokyo also were unable to source me one. The new SBDX013 was irresistible also, but it really was now more expensive than its predecessor. It could set me back around 鈧?800 Euro inside official Seiko boutique and approximately 鈧?000 Euro inside the gray market shops, with some negotiating. Normally, I am quite quick selection (some times a touch too quick), however this time I couldn't makeup my mind whether I want to a SBDX011 or SBDX013. I went home with out a new watch and regretted it when I left Tokyo. I even experimented with locate one at a shops on the airport, but they also didn't have any stock for the Marinemaster.Once I bought home rolex replica , Cleaning it once a the normal sources like Chrono24 and eBay though the SBDX011 was difficult to acquire in Europe (customs is a bitch, in order that was not the road I was about to take) and also the SBDX013 was over 鈧?000 Euro. These Marinemaster 1000 models are certainly not accessible in Europe via the official channels, making sure that didn't help either replica xoxo watches . The fact they are so scarce in Europe also causes it to become that there is little desire for sellers in the future down while using price.Therefore i was a bit bummed at this but suddenly remembered the words of Ikuo Tokonaga when he laid his eyes on Jason Heaton's (GearPatrol and Hodinkee writer who was simply also when camping in Japan) SBDX011 Marinemaster 1000. He said "That is a good watch, however is the original." while pointing to his very own wrist, wearing this original Seiko 6159-7010 Tuna model. Therefore i chose to test it out for and look to get a Seiko 6159-7010 on eBay. There was clearly two there, one on offer from Germany with the original strap and in pretty decent condition. The ceramic shroud has some nicks and marks, but nothing that concerned me. I paid around 鈧?000 Euro to the watch, which isn't a secret bargain, however i also had seen them for the little more. Seiko 6159-7010 at the front, SBDX011 within the backA week later, the watch was delivered after making certain everything functioned properly, I began putting it on. Although Some think it will be a watch to wear over a frequent basis, I certainly accomplish that. Especially after I replaced the original rubber strap for just one in the new silicon straps in the SBDX013 (that they can Come through in Europe, curiously). That strap set me back another 鈧?80 Euro using the Seiko Boutique (it surprised me they did not have a clue concerning this watch when they swapped the strap) on the other hand say it's worth it, how strange that will sound. The main rubber strap was the original one from 1975, therefore it was all shiny and very stiff. Unpleasant to put on all day long. Also, the original strap was forced in a certain shape due to shroud, making it happen the case back barely touched your wrist. The new soft silicon strap fits better with all the shroud and helps to make the watch more 'flat' on your own wrist. I also found this to be the case using the newer SBDX011. My Seiko 6159-7010 about the silicon strapThe watch was used from the former and first owner for diving purposes, plus it shows a bit. The watch has some scuffs and marks, but not bother about for a 1975 tool watch. There are some minor scratches inside the mineral, as possible seen on a few photos. The tritium hour markers became this vanilla looking color, whereas hands stayed quite white, but you are also tritium.Seiko 6159-7010 dial and handsInside the watch is Seiko's Hi-Beat movement caliber 6159a. It ticks at 36,000vph (5Hz) and it has a hack-stop and quick-set date. As outlined by an earlier interview (here) with the original one who owns the Seiko 6159-7010, this watch wasn't very cheap. Around $500 USD in 1976. My prediction is always that - also using the movement an accidents construction - it absolutely was a prestige watch for Seiko at that time. It still is actually, because new Seiko SBDX013 and SBDX014 are produced in Morioka, where they also manufacture the Grand Seiko movements and replica watches. The modern references have Seiko caliber 8L35 inside, that is in line with the Grand Seiko 9S55 movement. There is also a Spring Drive version available from the Marinemaster 1000, reference SBDB013.Back from the TunaAbove, the truth is the rear of true. The serial number is located towards the bottom, the place that the Rolex GMT Replica first digit indicates the season (1975) along with the second digit indicates the month (June). The Tsunami wave can there be plus the reference number as well as the observe that the watch is manufactured out of titanium.Below, a few images of the sides from the watch, to tell you just what the ceramic coated titanium shroud appears to be. 4 large screws maintain it available as you have seen. The crown is - like many Seiko divers - unsigned.The accuracy from the Seiko 6159-7010 is amazing in fact these years. The only real concern We have relating to this watch would be to contain it serviced. The monobloc case and old movement almost certainly want to buy to return to Japan for the Spa treatment.Talking about the monobloc case; this and the used L-shaped gasket to close the watch are the belief that it doesn't require a helium valve, such as the Sea-Dweller. This Tuna in addition to the Ploprof used cased made out of one piece to help keep it water and air-tight. See below a graphic in the monobloc case and L-gasket coming from a later reference.The Seiko Tuna or 'Hockey Puck', is definitely an interesting piece to wear. Most of the people believe it is really ugly, but those that understand will cherish it. This watch wasn't always generally known as Tuna, the story goes that one in the Seiko forums, a proprietor with this model wrote that 'it was like walking around having a can of tuna strapped to the wrist". "Tuna cans" had also been a much used phrase at that time (10-12 in years past), which eventually got shortened to Tuna. Other Seiko divers replica watches together with the shrouds were also known as Tuna or Baby Tuna, for the more compact models. Simply because this watch is large! You will need to cope with 50mm on your own wrist, that isn't for everybody (although Mike has one as well). The little one Tuna models are a result for people who want to wear these shrouded divers anyway. The 50mm sized black case also justifies the Hockey Puck reference obviously.Finally, I am delighted together with the Seiko 6159-7010 simply because it incorporates a nicely discolored hour markers and hands (slightly yellow-ish) as well as the steel bezel with black shrouds give the watch a nice contrast. Despite the ceramic coated titanium shroud and titanium case, that is a pretty heavy watch, mainly automobile size I guess. Although I've got no urge in enabling a SBDX011 or current SBDX013 as well, the Spring Drive version might be something to contemplate down the road.
