This was not a planned purchase, but I saw one for sale on WUS from a guy in Italy - I like the case, bezel and even the dial. Looks like a Vintage VDB to me, but a lot less $. The problem with the WUS sale was he's in Italy and wanted a bank wire transfer. Anyway, I went to their website and got one for about the same price, but brand new. Their price includes shipping worldwide. $420.

45mm width, 50,5mm long, and 24mm lugs,
flat sapphire Crystal (3,5mm) with AR coating,
light blue MOP dial with Super luminova indices on 2nd layer,
steel bezel with 120 clicks, and black Ceramic insert with SL indexes,
steel screw down crown at 4 o'clock, and HEV at 9 o'clock,
24mm leather strap with steel buckle,
and Seiko Automatic movement caliber NH35, with 24 Jewels, and 41 hours of power reserve

Can't wait to see it in the flesh - I'll post pics when it arrives - supposed to be 1-5 days.

Found a video of the watch - the MOP doesn't look as much like water here, but still looks good. Video Attachments Mike D 102 August 11, 2018 03:17AM
Here the dial looks like fluid steel or mercury... Cool (n/t) James T. Kirk© 89 August 11, 2018 06:00AM

Thanks, Johan - that's what hooked me! (n/t) Mike D 88 August 11, 2018 03:14AM
Thumbs Up Cool! MOP usually does nothing for me, but that looks like water. Cool (n/t) Zeb 93 August 10, 2018 05:03PM
Thanks - same here, usually not a MOP fan at all, but this was done in a way that looks good. (n/t) Mike D 86 August 11, 2018 03:14AM
Nice - some great design cues on these...Cheers! Ethan Mack 108 August 10, 2018 04:45PM
Thanks. Exactly, they seem like great value for the $. I like a lot of their watches. (n/t) Mike D 90 August 11, 2018 03:13AM
Hmm, makes me feel I'm looking out a porthole at the ocean. Smile (n/t) Robmks 94 August 10, 2018 02:40PM
That pic certainly does look like that. I hope the MOP on mine looks like that, but it might be a lot lighter. (n/t) Mike D 93 August 11, 2018 03:12AM
That's very nice, and has interesting and unique elements. (n/t) JohnSNY 102 August 10, 2018 06:45AM
Thanks, John - that's what caught my eye. (n/t) Mike D 87 August 11, 2018 03:11AM
