    First batch is end of June for EU, second batch is November. Don't know if UK gets watches from both batches.

    Ah ok, thanks. That explains it then, mine is in the second batch (from a Spanish AD). Which is fine as I have a Speedy Tuesday to pay for first! :)

    It will be interesting to find out where the serial numbers end up and are distributed to.

    Australia ended up with numbers in the low 500's and high 700's from what I have seen/heard. I suspect Japan got the first 500.

    Just tell her it's a $200 SEIKO. I have been doing that for 10 years. If it has a SEIKO logo, you are safe. ;)

    HAHA, she know better though. She has bought me a couple already and knows they can get expensive.

    That is so spot on! I had bought a brand new Grand Seiko and my wife knew I was wearing a new watch, she has a sixth sense about when packages arrive at the house that are watches. Anyways she asked me about it and I told her reluctantly that it was new but it was "only a Seiko". She asked how much it was and I simply said "Seiko's on average are a couple hundred bucks".

    That can backfire. When I ordered my SBEX001 from Japan, my credit card company called to verify the unusually high, international charge. My wife answered the phone... She now knows that all Seikos do not cost $200.-(
