Dreaming for a Zeitwerk
I am monitoring grey market sales in Japan and the Transocean gets sold brand new for around 750$ and used for less, even the LE white and black. Huge price drop in the spring drive version as well, sells for less than 2k brand new while used Spring drives sell for more. Not too many buyers either.
I totally missed this watch when it first came out. Having read through this thread, now I totally want the blue-dial three-hander. I even like the integrated bracelet -- I think it works in this case because it gives the watch an interesting design and silhouette.
For me, the main turnoff is the price. As noted repeatedly in this thread, Seiko just has too many other good diver options for the Transocean to look competitive at $1k. But, if I could get that blue one for $750... that would tempt me a lot. Seiko knows how to do blue dials, that's for sure.
