    zuiko, I got up this morning and job #1 while waiting for my coffee is to check for your latest post. Today there was nothing and I went into SLA017 withdrawal. A couple of hours later there it is, your post, joy joy, happy happy.

    But the attachment will not open for me, high anxiety WIS disorder strikes ! Can anybody re-post the image for me ?

    Zuiko:

    I am living vicariously through you until mine arrives. My AD told me yesterday that I am receiving one from the first batch so it sounds like maybe a batch being released now through July and then second batch around November...

    In fact I have a third that I have put away for the future so it's not in the wild and probably won't be for a long time.

    Can't wait to see its friends on other people's arms soon...

    It's a truly magnificent watch and after a week of ownership I still haven't felt even a remote desire to wear another. In fact I haven't even seen any of my other watches since last Friday.
    Holy shimmering brown dial Zuiko, You are AMAZING ! Well played for sure.

    I hope to post a photo for you some time in the next weeks myself. Meanwhile how about a vintage 62MAS on the SLA017 Rubber Strap?

    Silicone, SEIKO is the only brand in the whole watch industry who actually think it's a good material for straps. :D

    I'm keen to see a good 62MAS in real life to compare in due course.

    Re: SLA017 Owner Thread

    One of the things that I like most about this watch is the stealth factor.

    Up until the logo change for Grand Seiko one could pass a GS as "just a Seiko" but on at least two occasions once with a fellow professional and other time at a pawn shop the "Grand" part of my Seiko was actually recognised.

    With this only the most avid Seiko fan will know but the average person who has no idea can still see that its a nicer than average watch. It still separates itself from the average watch to the keen eye.

    To someone not into watches its completely anonymous and genuinely "just a Seiko". That can be very important to me sometimes and I love the stealth aspect.

    Just some Seiko diver, that's all! For sure, that's really all 99.9% will think it is.

    I have to admit, I do like the sharp corners on the indices of the original 62MAS a little more. But I can see why he made that design change, as the indices now match the hands a lot more on the SLA.

    I know SLA017 is limited to 2000 watches and this appears to be the release for world outside Japan. SBDX019 seems to be the JDM version. Does anybody know how many of the JDM version are being released? Had SBDX019 hit the streets in Japan already? If not when?

    Just curious as to why they have different model numbers.
