Ever since I first learned about the Seiko Tuna Cans in 2007, I knew that I wanted to eventually collect them all. After getting the SBBN007 and Darth versions, I set my goal for an automatic. Given the cost, it took a while. Finally, I came across a good deal on a SBDX011 a few years ago and was able to buy it. Technically speaking, it is the third generation of automatic tunas – 1st was the original 6159. The 2nd was the SBDX005 Historical reissue in 2000.
The SBDX011 came after that, similar to the historical – but all black this time. As the video below mentions, it is a huge watch – so much so that I view getting used to the size/weight as a worthwhile sacrifice to have something this cool and unique.
