    I think it happens most of the time, especially with these low-end situations. It might take a couple years for them to get REALLY low, but I think the general price for these will end up 200-250 after a while, maybe 175-225 eventually awhile after that..? just a guess based on what I've vaguely noticed after a few years in the Seiko hobby....

    In my personal opinion I expect these to settle around $250-$275. I believe they're slightly higher in build quality than the SKX007 - with a better movement, better rubber, and better bracelet. I'd be very surprised to see these below $250.

    You're right, the 4r divers have tended to stay a little higher so far, it seems, i didn't really think of that.

    this would be a very optimistic take. better build quality and movement, 4R vs 7S alone would insure higher pricing. factor in the prospex badging and seiko reissuing a very popular line and seiko can price this any way they want and people would still buy them, so no real incentive for them to lower the price to SKX levels.

    somewhere near $250 would be a realistic price floor for these reissues.

    Here's my guess: the 007 and all the other 7S** divers will be discontinued, replaced with Seiko 5 diver style watches running the 4R36. These are trading on Amazon around $120 or $140 now. The turtles and maybe the 2d gen monsters will be the new entry level ISO compliant dive watches. The monsters now are going for $200--$250 so I guess that turtles will enter that range eventually, limited editions excepted. How long will this take? A year, two years? How about 18 months?

    Assuming the world economy doesn't crater, of course.

    All this speculation about future turtle prices has me thinking... it can't be long until we see a futures market, right?

    Got an advance delivery notification for the 775 I ordered from Sears on Friday. To be delivered tomorrow, it was shipped from Seiko USA in NJ. Yay!

    Ordered my 777 from Sears on Friday too, still haven't received a shipping notice from them. Hope I'm as lucky!
