    Sometimes, you have to pay to play. And watches are just kind of a game ... in this modern world, it's a useless item ... I don't feel like complaining on the prices of Ferrari... I can't reasonnable afford one, so I don't have one... And I get over it.

    I see no reason why Seiko should keep on selling cheap watches. Being Seiko or Grand Seiko, compared to swiss or german brands, you have pretty much more for your money with Seiko!

    Grand Seiko provides pretty much Rolex/IWC/Jaeger... quality for Tudor's price range or so. Tudor or Oris have been comparison points here ... and honestly, Grand Seiko is far above, and Seiko is quite on par (depending on models for sure).

    I see nothing crazy with Seiko pricin' this LE (i don't care it being LE, I never resell my watches anyway) in 3k range...

    I can understand people being sad with not being able to afford it, but I see no shame nor any "missed point" into this pricing
    Agree! I have owned a lot of Swiss made watch brands and GS is up there when it comes to finish, the only thing lacking is better clasps and the GS thickness issue (some models). The only reason I can see to argue that the 62Mas reissue is too expensive is if you can't afford it. I don't doubt for one second that it will outclass the Swiss watches in the same price range.

    As I said in a previous thread: We already have lots and lots of 4R and 6R models, what we don't have at the moment is 8L models to choose from. I have asked for a 200m "high" quality non GS SEIKO diver for many years so I'm very happy about this release. I'd take a 14mm 200m diver over a 300m 16mm thick diver any day of the week. There is a reason for the ISO6425 requirement only being 100m. I wasn't the least worried to swim with my JLC 100m diver so I don't get why everyone else needs 300m to feel safe.

    It's not harder to service than anything else. The correct way is to send it to a SEIKO service center of course. I don't see the negative in that either though, SEIKO service is fast and cheap.

    Why. There is plenty of independent watchmakers perfectly able to service Seiko mov.t and pretty much anything else.

    Only thing about the 8L would be they'd have to have the tool to unscrew the oscillating weight. It's possible to make one and there are a handful of watchmakers that regularly service 8L's, however a large majority of watchmakers would probably just advise to take it straight to Seiko.

    I love this design but too expensive. I would rather purchase MOD or other GS watch.

    I wonder how much "can't see the forest for all the trees" but sort of.. Inverse, is going on on this Seiko forum. Let me explain. The 62MAS is in my opinion quite elegant. But the other re-releases shown earlier in the thread, with the swapped hands and all, were not so elegant. I wonder how much fanboyism gets in the way of critically viewing a new Seiko watch, especially one that is an homage to an old classic. The PADI Turtle and Zimbe for instance are just plain goofy looking. But people still bought them because they were "special".

    Does anyone know if there are pre-orders for this watch yet?
