BOOMER! I'm sorry to hear this.

The LTM version I have (San Martin) works very well and the finish is brushed.

It even came with a free hex wrench to remove the bezel.

The bezel not turning is more common with the prototypes made by these small companies (I have one of those too).

@emilio can you post images of the san martin version is it the same?

Emilio, no problem feel free to share information.

The 300m Steeldive tuna i have is ok.

The 1KM with rubber strap sits funny on my wrist. Because of the shroud extension downwards, the rubber strap gets more narrow and does not sit properly on the wrist.

Maybe the Emperor Tuna will be better.

Case size : 52mm x 17.3mm

These seem to be well made and good value. Might be an interesting start to another sub forum for modding these with custom dials and hands?

Maybe the Seiko forum we have? Well, I reckon it's not the same but similar.
