It's got the look & the features that I find in a great tool...

A thick and beefy case, a nice flat hardlex crystal & screw down retaining ring, Some HE gas resistence which is a plus, great seiko lume, a high torque 7 jewels quartz power plant w/ antimagnetic shield, unidirectional 120 click ratcheted bezel, and 200m water resistance!

Hope you like the shots...











Cheers, :001_smile:

Hey how are you Diver88, its good to catch your reply

Well she's NOS as you can see, still has the hang tag and the caseback decal.
The lume is okay but were talking 25 yr old lume, the marker cups are good sized as you know, basically just like the modern SKX dials markers with a good amount of lume applied, but she only last with a good glow for a half hour, then the lights get turned down for a couple hours then fades away to a light glow. The lume ages and looses its brightness over time and this watch dates to (May 1987).

Thanks & glad you like the watch!
:biggrin:

Cheers,
Jim







that is just pretty darn cool mR Jim:thumbup1:

hows the lume and how old is the new stock?

I wouldn't have recognized this one as a 7c43. Very nice, Poseidon.

You're pulling some rabbits out of the hat lately! :001_smile:

Exactly Rick & thanks...

It's still magic really, these vintage quartz movements can tick for 25 years or more, some less and some more without a service.

It was kind of magic when these quartz divers were coming out. Quartz itself was the latest technology around 1978. The 7548's were nice as well, but this one rocks.
