Upon taking my new Tuna out of the box, my first reaction was, "Oh my God, this thing is small!" My impression remained as I put it on my wrist and looked at it in the mirror. But then I placed it next to my Orient M-Force and, comforted, said to myself, "Okay, this plays like a 46mm, not bad. You can relax."
The rubber strap is very comfortable. I love the toolish dial, the big lume circles. I can't wait to get my Super Oyster bracelet because I believe that will upgrade the look considerably.
Final thoughts before I dash to pick up my girls at pre-school: I think the Seiko Sumo, about half the price, delivers the most bang for your buck if you're looking for an upscale toolish diver.
Having said that, I can't imagine selling my Tuna. It represents my new aesthetic and I imagine my liking for the watch will grow and grow.
I'm wearing it to work. The more I wear it, the more I love it even though I notice it plays on my wrist like a 44-45mm watch. This size impression can be accounted by the fact that the dial is surrounded not just by a thick bezel but a shroud. I actually like the size. Very toolish. The giant lume markers have soaked up the sunlight are are shining brilliantly. My watch tastes have officially changed.
