SEIKO QUARTZ BULLHEAD CHRONOGRAPH SPIRIT SMART SCEB009

This write up 'translated into Engrish' has me laughing:

Design feeling now trend epicenter of Japan to which the world paid attention of "Shibuya". The theme adopted gray Rumiburaito glowing dark night of Shibuya Night! New color. The MIX a trend based on Tsunomoderu of Seiko. New standard for the next generation casual watch with an emphasis on feeling of youth and flexibility to seven changes to suit the times. / Enforced for daily use waterproof 10 atm  / accuracy +/- 15 sec / Battery life: about 3 years / stopwatch function per month difference ± (1/20 second measurement 12 hours meter) / tachymeter with date display / Rumiburaito / Distribution Limited model.

Shibuya is a shopping district in Tokyo, apparently where young trendy people shop. Rumiburaito is a term that is describing the proprietary 'Lumi-Brite' Lume that Seiko uses.  

Specs:
Japanese Domestic Market Limited Distribution
Quartz, Caliber No. 7T92
- Case and bracelet material: Stainless steel
- Glass material: Hardlex crystal
- WR 10 bar
- Lumi-Brite Lume
- Dial color, Gradient Black

Dimensions:
Case diameter = 43mm
Case height = 12.3mm
Lug to lug = 45mm
Lug width = 20mm

Well anyway this is basically a re-issue of the classic bullhead chronos from the 1970's. Price was good at under $260 delivered EMS in a couple of days. The gradient black dial is awesome! The 70's vibe is captured well with the sunburst gradient dial and baton hands......on to the photos:

cheers Feeling younger just looking at this beauty Gary ! What a incredibly cool watch, along with
find sir. Not sure even have seen this exact model before, but it is just spectacular imho. Seiko
really did recapture the feel of the original bullheads with this model, and I think in some ways
may have actually surpassed the originals. ..The design, and finishing seem right on par, but
this unbelievable gradient dial, and lume might give it an edge actually. Think it's ridiculously
nice Gary ! ..Ridiculously nice pictures of it as well !  bounce 

HUGE congratulations Gary ! Yet another stunner to add to the collection, and enjoy ! Thanks
so much for showing us this, and for giving us all of this neat information about it also.
