    That is the same starting price as all the 8L35 based watches, that is the MM300.

    People saying that they would be happy to pay 2K or whatever price they fancy should try walking into a luxury car dealer and try to do the same.

    We do that all the time .........it's called negotiating. Even luxury car dealers have sales quotas to make.

    I think Seiko have got this remake wrong.

    On release in 1965 the 62mas cost 13,000 yen, so there was no need now to put an 8L35 in it and charge 2.5k. There were other movement choices available to keep it well under 1500, that's assuming it's the movement that decided it's price to begin with.

    Sure, then you drive home with free floor mats (not genuine). Keep dreaming.

    In 1965 there was a real need for an affordable Japanese diver's watch.
    In 2017 watches and particularly divers are exclusively a luxury status symbol.
    Beside, Seiko has literally nothing between the $110 (retail) 6R15 mov.t and this one. Collectors would have felt belittled if it had a 6R. Well done Seiko for making more money with less production and going par with the Swiss and their prices.

    But the 6R15 is not the only movement in the 6R range that they could have used. I think there are four other choices before the 8L35 would have been needed and it would have kept cost down. Sure these other movements have features that would not have been needed but Seiko need not use them.

    I am not raising the whole 6r15 hi-beat argument here because I have no problem with it to begin with and actually like it as a movement.

    There is nothing else but the 6R15. Research "6R family". Seiko has stretched its usage up to $900 watches but there's is a limit even for the buyer that doesn't care about the mov.t

    Fair enough.

    Then why not modify a 6R20 or similar and release it in one of these reissue/remake watches. I just can't find the justification to remake a watch and have it jump 2.5 times where it should be priced.

    I do not see a reason why not to put 6R20 in this kind of divers. If nothing else, people couldn't complain that Seiko is not putting 28k movement in some divers.
