Night Dive BHP Jetty Kwinana 06-09-2013 - SBDC007

Postby bedlam » September 6th 2013, 9:46am

Night dive at an old bulk cargo jetty. Pretty mucky underneath but quite a few critters and thousands of crabs...the place was crawling with them. 64mins at 12m in 16C water. Sorry there are not more watch pics but I forgot to take any and only grabbed a couple as I was about to surface. Will be out on Sunday and can get some better ones then. I am liking the Shogun a lot...way more than I expected. It's just really good in every way and I really haven't found a flaw as yet.

Awesome photography. Just great. And glad you insist on real diver watches, too.

I'm very impressed with the Shogun. The bezel is on the light side, but smoothish with a hint of MM300 and no back-play aftertaste :lol:

The bezel slopes away from the crystal to generate a low profile. The edges are smooth and not easy to catch. The insert is fully indexed. The 12 marker is large and properly lumed. The whole thing is damn good.

The titanium case is really special - good looking and comfortable to wear. The watch has just enough bling to not be drab to look at but not enough to draw attention - which is just how I like it. Nice firm crown. Excellent dial and hand readability.

The Shogun is a serious candidate for a one watch person. Full marks Seiko!
