FS -- Seiko Sportura TITANIUM Kinetic Chronograph SLQ009 (cal. 9T82 movement)
The Seiko Sportura Titanium Kinetic Chronograph (model SLQ009) is a very rare watch...TITANIUM, professional looking, a chronograph, and a spectacular 38 jewel kinetic movement (the cal. 9T82 is still the top of the line Seiko movement).

But it has the same hiccup of other Kenetic watch as once you had problem on the capacitor, it had to returned to factory to change; it may cost a few hundred to thousand dollars!
This watch was having an estimated price of HKD$15,000 in 2000
I am searching if he has any Rolex...let you know.
