    One's ideas about what makes a diving watch what it is is often based on the various popular watches that colour one's expectations but after you wear this you know that this is much closer to the heart of what a diving watch was/is.

    It's got the purest DNA of a Seiko diving watch in a thoroughly up to date and highly detailed creation. I'm totally in love with it :)

    Thanks for sharing your pictures and thoughts about this LE. I am anxiously awaiting my pre-order notification that I need to pay the balance and get mine. I am in the US and I was told sometime in July for delivery. Anyone else??

    Seems to have a relatively slim looking profile for a 14mm thick watch. Which imo is a good thing. Looks like about 0.7mm of that 14mm is crystal.

    on the contrary, I'm a BIG BIG fan of domed xtral.

    Real world photos have me from "meh, it's too small anyways" to "damn it I wish I didn't have gorilla wrists"

    Those photos look stunning.

    That would surprise me honestly. Most of Seiko's limited editions have held or gained value, many who weren't as hyped or historically important or as wearable a size as this.

    I will remind you that Seiko will launch sbdc051. I know cheaper, like, 6r15 ... we'll live - we'll see.
    Remember SAGQ005 (8L35)?

    Sla017 is a very good watch and a very expensive watch. For me it's too expensive by 1/3. For this reason I will not make money for Seiko!

    End OT
