    Re: Official SBDX019 -62MAS Reissue

    My hesitation with limited editions: Before I'd spend (relatively) big money on one, I'd like to know that parts will be available in 10 or 20 years and that serviceability will be practical in the future as well.

    FWIW, that's why I bought my Sumo instead of an MM300. I've already dinged it hard enough that it required regulation afterward. I'm tough on my watches and I'm a DIYer. I generally buy based on that.

    Yes, but the MM300 is an established product.
    Peace people

    8L35 and beautiful looks is enough for me to want one. Or hope that there will be an unlimited production version if I cannot get my hands on the LE....

    I don't understand the mindset behind this. Do people think the 8L will be phased out anytime soon, and that Seiko won't be stocking parts for it for years to come? How does that change from any other movement out there, Seiko and non-Seiko? Has there been a documented case where Seiko didn't service a non-vintage watch due to parts availability (or lack thereof)? The only movement I can think of that this might occur with in the near future is the 4S line of movements, but I haven't heard of anyone being unable to get Seiko to service theirs yet. And those were completely phased out about 3-4 years ago, right?

    Seems like seiko is over killing their LEs. There are too many these days. LE turtles, LE monsters.

    Sad that this is a LE. I like it, but I like the MM300 better and only have funds for one of these this year.

    It is, but, I can't open it up and tinker with it easily like I can a Sumo or a Tuna. The lack of DIY-ness that comes with the MM300 is what deterred me. Is it a great watch? Yes. Is it the right watch for me at present? No.

    Fair enough. I see your point on the parts availability. That said, I'm not very keen on having to send it back to Seiko as opposed to taking it to a local watchmaker when it's time for an overhaul.

    If your watchmaker can't service SEIKO, then you need to find another one. :p

    Perhaps it's my misunderstanding. The only MM300 services I've read about mention sending them back to Seiko.
