Waiting on an Amphibia right now. It is being held in US customs.Sadly, my Kommanderskie was accidentally cleared out when my Father had a purge I bought it in February 1992, 50 days after fall of USSR, for $5 on a train out of Moscow Central - I recently replaced it with an Amphibia 120059, which I have modded
I'm glad you asked. Because until 4 minutes ago I didn't know either. This is from Invicta's Jason Taylor Collection. Wikipedia informs me he was a pretty good linebaker for the Dolphins. His jersey number was 99. He retired after the 2011 season.Interesting looking dial. Is the 99 or double 9 done for fashion, or is there a deeper meaning?
Thanks. It has seen it's share. I purchased it new from a Seiko outlet in 2006. It has traveled all over the place with me. I dropped it onto a marble floor in 2016, denting the case and destroying the movement. It sat for a few years until I decided to make it a project. I sourced a refurbished Seiko 7s26 movement on eBay from the Philippines for $35, took a deep breath, and learned how to replace a watch movement. I broke off some of the lume on the minute hand on reassembly, but it it gave it a bit of a different look. I do appreciate that all the scratches, dents, and scars are simply souvenirs of a life well lived.That watch doesn't look bad at all. It probably accompanied you on a great many adventures.
