    A more than worthy grail, no doubt. Good luck with your new reality :)

    I would say that anyone who gets one in real life will agree there is nothing quite as beautiful in Seiko divers.

    As someone who also has an SBEX001, SBGA029, Submariner date, Tudor Pelagos, Blumo and some Turtles this is simply in another league imo.

    Seiko had it absolutely perfect first go in 1965 and the up-to-date features in this make it seem like it's just a continuation of that model for today - much like the evolution of the Submariner over 50 years.

    The proportions are simply perfection. The bling is just right making it just special enough without going overboard. Someonenabove said it well when they observed that this was the perfect blend of tool and bling.

    Anyone who is awaiting their own SLA is in for a treat.

    It's an end game level watch.

    Awesome pics gentlemen thanks! Does anyone know how many each retailer will be receiving? I am just curious as there are only 2000 and I am sure hundreds of retailers so I am thinking ball park of 10 per store??

    I have placed an order for one with an AD in Spain who confirmed that they had an allocation of 20.

    Z man, Thanks for continuing to post pics and remarks, I'm living vicariously through you till I pick mine up.

    One on the bracelet, one on the rubber strap and one in the safe, that's the way to do it, wish I was in your snack bracket, lol.

    By the way zuiko - I originally had an order for one of these when pre-orders first opened but subsequently cancelled it. It is your recent pictures that have lead to me putting another order in!
