It really is that blue (Seiko content)

So I wanted to start a sentence with "so", as modern vernacular dictates, in order to introduce a drunken holiday purchase. Sorry, "acquisition", with "funds", from "my AD".

I was on the lookout for an honest-to-goodness, salt-of-the-earth, man-of-the-people, pillar-of-society, beer-drinkin, Dodge RAM-drivin, Home Depot-visitin, grill-buyin, backyard-cookin, bad-ass muthafuckin dive watch, the basic kind worn by real people (it says here). I spotted a nice Citizen NY-0088 (hell, it's even named after a US postcode, sort of) with a Pepsi (another US product) bezel, which I liked as I used to own the earlier, smaller one before I flooded it and chucked it in a skip. I had some beers at lunchtime and bought this much more expensive one instead, because it looked pretty in the blue "colourway". This photo isn't adjusted - it really is that vivid. Sorry, pops!

Congrats Pubbie! That's become one of my favorites. I've been wearing mine on my Monster's metal band.

At least you have good taste on shopping binges while drinking.
I don’t drink and shop near as well.

It is - the movement is a bit grainy and workaday with noisy handwinding, but that's kind of the whole down-to-earth appeal of the watch. And then they go and out a blue on it that, in some lights, wouldn't shame an H. Moser. The bezel is plain anodised but it looks like ceramic.

More than I wanted to spend on a knockabout watch but it's a level up on the Citizen I looked at and I preferred the shape to the "Turtle". Thanks all.
