    Then again, I am somewhat of a Seiko fanboy.... IMG_2436.jpg

    Thanks for the info, maybe you should start a 'Seikoenthusiast.blogspot'?
    Is that a Flightmaster I spy?

    Yes indeed, leftmost in the middle row. Good ol' Flighty! SNA411.

    Since I know you were shopping SKX's... my SKX's are also in the middle row (orange SKX011 flanked by two black SKX007's, one in beater condition on a NATO, the other a brand-new Japan model). The first-gen Orange Monster (bottom row, 2nd from left) is also an SKX model (SKX781) and uses the same 7S26 movement, but Monsters are considered their own thing by collectors due to the big difference in case, bezel, dial, and hands. There are two Turtles on the righthand of the bottom and middle row (main difference between Turtle and SKX lineup is the cushion shaped case and upgraded/newer movement -- 7S26 has been around since the 90's). In my opinion, you really can't go wrong with the SKX007/009 etc. It is so much watch for the price. Perfect size (42mm case), perfect beater on a NATO. Their straps are crap (both the black rubber and the jubilee bracelet) so don't let that impact your judgment if you find one to try on. It's best suited on a NATO in my opinion. The Turtle is definitely nicer than the SKX, but the SKX feels more no-nonsense to me.

    Easter offers are pretty good! I still like the regatta, but it's just a touch too much compared to other watches that are around

    Yeah, it's pretty cool, but a lot of money. They don't sell at all well, maybe they'll come down even further eventually...?

    Yes, I don't really like that smiley face design.... otherwise it's a cool looking watch.

    Yes, I'm guessing it was ex-photo shoot or something.

    Good price on calibre 17 too. How much was the black AR? I definitely need another one!

    Not surprised they had difficulties selling 1000 pieces of the Muhammed Ali watches. Something like 300 pcs would probably have made more sense...

    Yeah, although having said that they are apparently selling about three a day at the moment...
