It does bear a resemblance to the Omega Speedmaster II, one of my favorite watches. A friend of mine got one shortly after we graduated from high school, and I've always admired it.

Well, that's even weirder! Do you have trouble with other Photobucket postings or just this one? It shows up for me, of course.


FYI - Looks blocked to me too.

Sorry, guys! I reloaded it twice, so I'm guessing it's a new Photobucket problem since I never had issues before this one.

No sense in wasting space.

You'll have to take my word that it's a nice watch. Cool

If you have a watch with 22mm lugs, go to my karma for a chance at an imitation Isofrane watch strap.

Watch strap karma

Cheers.

Another Seiko!
The bracelet was missing a pin and it needed a battery.
But here it is, a 2005 7T62 Speedmaster.
It's HEAVY!

I gave $35 for it!

Interested in making a little profit? I've been looking for a good, inexpensive chronograph.

This one is special, somewhat rare.
There's a whole collectors group dedicated to snatching up the "Speedmaster" types Seikos.

The Tach ring bezel is somewhat rare.

I have another on it's way I may part with.

Z06 - The silicone diver strap w/deployment buckle, where did you get that from? Would you mind telling me the price?

Marlin Fan, I found it on Etsy under the search term:
Omega,20mm Rubber diver deployment strap for Seamaster, Planet Ocean.New

$42.77 + shipping from UK (about $10)

The NATO strap is the real deal Omega... $$$$!

The diver's strap is NOT OEM; as the only silicone straps were made in blue and only for the Planet Ocean Seamaster. The strap I bought required fitting effort as the spacing appears to also be for the P.O. model. The horns and the hole spacing for the spring bar appear to be slightly different.

BTW the REAL blue P.O. silicone strap has an MSRP of $395.00!

ETA: the deployment clasp on the Etsy strap is A1+!

I've had this watch for over 20 years, and it has been just about everywhere I've been. I love it.

Crummy cell phone pic, but here it is:

This band is courtesy of David Truong. Thanks, Dave, for your generosity! My Seiko is back in service!

I managed to break the first link a couple of months ago, and I'm still peeved about it.

Same watch, with a [temporary] substitute bracelet attached, and the original bracelet alongside.


"Close, but no cigar" comes to mind with this replacement bracelet, mostly because I'm just picky.

I'm constantly on the lookout now for one like it with the original Seiko titanium bracelet, so I can get this one back to its original configuration.

Edited -- it's the first link that's broken, not the end piece.

Well, that's bloody awesome! Thank you for that, SC. I will look into that shortly.

I have misspoken. It's not the endpiece that's broken, but rather the first link -- the one that connects to the endpiece.

Thanks to SC's link, though, I've done some more surfing this morning.

I almost hit the jackpot! I've found the Seiko-original bracelet, but the "buy it" link is broken. Phooey!
