Maybe a few decades in the future we will see a SKX LE reissue at this price... the SXDX007 anyone?
Wow, nice watch, but priced at ~£2.5k seems a bit steep for a non Grand Seiko model.
I think only really hardcore Seiko freaks will actually be buying the 62mas reissue at this price.
I think Seiko knows this, and that's why it's an LE. But I think if the LE sells out quickly, then they might put it in regular production with a different model number.
What I really want them to do is make a 6105-811x Willard re-issue.
I think it should look and be sized as close as possible to the original, except with 20mm instead of 19mm lugs.
I wish it would come with a 6r15c and have similar price and finishing as the Sumo.
That would be my dream Seiko re-issue.
6105-8110, a perfectly machined coin edge with no polish. Large lume pip, don't care for the small one on the re issue turtles. Make that and I'll gladly pay $2,000 for it ;)

I understand the historical importance of the model and the reissue seems very respectful to it. But let's face it, it's a rather primitive design to begin with...
At that price I see very limited appeal. That said, it will likely sell quickly (2000pcs are not that many), and next year we'll have the colourful PADI Prospex version at a more realistic price...
My brain says no way, my heart says must have !
Thanks for the thread Shannon. I've already ordered one and look forward to real world pics in the coming months, and of course the actual watch this summer.
Well Seiko is always quite cleaver and know how much the fans love this kind of pieces. The mind says the hell no! but the heart says bring it to me! By now most of them are already sold or will be in the hands of some market speculators.
In my case I will not pull the trigger, will wait to see what comes next.
