    The 6R20 has power reserve that was not on the original watch, if put the on the re-edition it would turn most buyers away. Not to mention that even with all the improvements over the 6R15 it is still way too much in a low class to be really desirable on expensive watches. See how poorly the "Phoenix" and other JDM models that use it have sold.
    I think Seiko got this right, 2K pieces @ $2K profit each = 4M, not stellar for a big company but it helps the bottom line, freshens the offering, and leverages the company heritage.

    Ah man don't start using business logic

    Think of it from a customers point of view we want a more reasonably priced watch

    Well, at least the dial is not that different from the LE.... Just change the hands and you get pretty close to the 62mas looks at a much more reasonable price point...

    Size, hands and prospex logo are a major turnoff on the 6R variant. Didn't sound good based on the specs and I think the leaked pic confirms it. They used a much better dial and handset on the LE sumo from a couple years back.

    The size is the main issue for me. I just don't understand why they can't use a slimmer case here. I understand the slightly bigger specs on the LE (probably to accommodate for the 8L movement), but at least it's a small difference vs. the original. 6 mm is a huge difference.

    Thanks for that

    But there they go again Prospex logo and the monster hour hand.

    If you try to build a collection of modern Seiko's it's the same all the way from a Seiko 5 up to the Shogun, Tuna's, Samurai and now 62mas. Next Sumo will get the same face-lift.

    The 62mas design has a place in history because it was the first Seiko dive watch.

    But I think it isn't at all pretty or even interesting to look at. As someone on this thread already said: it's primitive.

    The SBDX019 8L35 model would be sort of interesting to me as a collectable if I were a more fanatical and well-heeled Seiko person.

    These oversized 6r15 models with their modern hands, which I think make the primitive 62mas design look worse, don't impress me at all. I think they will probably flop.

    Agreed,
    Plus, the 43mm case diameter coupled with the 62MAS shaped case will make for a 50mm+ L to L. Not good for slim wrists.

    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.
    Nope, I brought the MM300 for much less new. As it is a limited run, I doubt it will be discounted.
    Peace people
