    I think that's a very subjective statement to make, especially when we haven't even seen the full on shot of the watch or specs beyond the movement and size. Case finishing, applied numerals, movement quality, depth rating, and the fact that it's a limited edition are just some things off the top of my head that could and probably do separate the Oris from this new Seiko. I'm not saying either one is a better value, but it's a bit disingenuous to say the Oris is a better value.

    For me, it's competitors would more closely be the Tudor Black Bay, IWC Aquatimer, or something similar. Compared to those, I would probably choose this release over them based on the information we have (which is still incomplete). Some questions I still have regarding this watch are will it have Diashield, how much does it weigh, and will they regulate the 8L35 because it's a limited edition.

    Official SBDX019 -62MAS Reissue

    We're all entitled to an opinion right? I was happy all the time with owning this reissue...but converting JPY to USD makes me a whole lot happier about owning the Doxa, and I'm a Seiko freak. "Enjoy in good health" to any future owners though. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Yeah pricewise I notice the Seiko SBDX019 puts it in the same price range as the Tudor Black Bay. Many people think the Tudor Black Bay is overpriced (for the ETA version), but I think the finish and detail on the watch is phenomenal and the price is justified. But for this Seiko, there are not enough details yet to know if it's pricepoint actually supports the price.

    I don't forsee much of a discount on this model since it is limited.

    I know, but there's no time like the present for them to surprise us. ;)

    I think it is safe to say that this model will hold its value very well down the road, even more so than the SBDX012, which makes the price tag a bit more bearable...

    I wasn't around the forums back then, but wasn't the first iteration of the MM300 a limited edition? SBDX003 or something? Then the next year or so they started the SBDX001 as a full time design? My hope is something similar happens here. 2000 special edition pieces this year, and a slightly changed main production version next year.

    Yes, SBDX003 Y2K Historical LE. I'm sure if Seiko releases a production version "SBDX021" it wil have "X" on dial & crown. I couldn't see them changing much else.
    Considering this is Seiko diver DNA 1.0, I bet the price won't change either.

    Cheers

    Prediction.... 2018 Seiko will release SBDX021 with "X" on the dial & crown. Same price, except dealers will discount the "production" version.
