    You're not the first person to point that out about this watch. However, it's just an optical illusion :)

    Wow nice gold spillman. Is that original lume in the hands? Always interesting to see how the lume ages between dial and hands, with UG they often do not match at all.

    May i present the diametric pair, a NOS LCD Quartz Speedy made for the office, put head against the rugged mechanical apocalyptic SM1000 prototype 5-XXX tool watch that has seen its share of action under great depths...

    Thanks and not sure about the lume- it looks original to me in hand but I haven't inspected it under the loupe. Agree that UG lumed hands/dials mostly shouldn't match I think as they were normally sourced from multiple different suppliers.

    Resilient, no frills, proper divers. Op, you have a great collection, you are a man of taste. The Olympic Seiko along with the 6105 had me drooling. skxcrv.jpg
