Think I’ve decided on an AP after I close on my house. Anyone have an offshore?
I’ve had a ton of them. They wear big. The bezel is beautiful, but imo it has to be ceramic bc the fucking brush grain on the bezel is so tall, that when you breathe on it, they get pushed over. It’s infuriating.

That being said, I’ve had the elephant twice, safari 2, black/yellow carbon, and something else with a ceramic bezel that I can’t remember. Ceramic ftw

My dad ran printing presses for American Greetings for 25+ years. They gave him this Seiko for his 25th anniversary in 1992. He never wore it because he had a Seiko just like it (but without the fluted bezel), so this was his "nice" watch. Per Boomer regulations, if you have something nice, then it stays in a box and shall never be worn. Then AG laid him off a year later and closed the Cleveland print shop, so I can picture him saying PISS ON THEM and packing this thing away. I finally put a battery in it today.

Not Seiko's finest era for build quality, but I'm sure the movement is accurate and indestructible.

Henry Hill wore a gold smooth bezel version of that watch.
