One interesting little quirk I noticed with the lume, especially on the hands, is that the hues change ever so slightly depending on the angle of the light source. Here we see it glow the signature 216570 Chromalight teal. In some shots it has more blue while in others, it's the old Luminova green. It could also be that I need to adjust my camera settings lol. Still, the lume glows like a torch in complete darkness and lasts for quite a bit so I've got no doubts on the authenticity of the hands 😅
Had the opportunity to handle @whatthekhrono’s orange baby monster for a bit and I’m really impressed. The build quality is superb, and I would say is on par with a lot of other higher end Seiko dive watches. Instead of the regular 7s26 movement, a 4R movement beats within, giving it handwinding and hacking capabilities. Though it may not have a screwdown crown and 200m water resistance, I think it presents great value especially when compared to the new 5kx-es - J —————————- Watch: Seiko SRP483

Sit-rep on #watchpalmsunday . Two weeks in, Frankie the Frexplorer seems to be holding up quite well. I've put him through sweaty gym sessions, showers, reckless desk dives, hot and humid kitchens, and so far it hasn't caved. Still keeping good time with an approximate 40+ hour power reserve. The GMT complication has held up pretty well too and continues to keep time well enough. No stats on time-keeping since I don't have a timegrapher but comparing with the clock on my phone, I'd say it's probably within +/- 10 to 12s a day
Last fleeting moments before the rainy season here in #westernwashington. Here is my #steinhart#ocean39explorer in my side yard, and what appears to be my missing extension ladder in my overgrown vines. Huh.
