    Just from what I've read the SBDX019 (500 pieces) is the Japan only model number with the SLA017 (1500 pieces) for the international markets. I could be wrong though and it wouldn't be the first time.

    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.
    At least you won't need to get it insured. No burglar would care to take it.

    Probably a metal belt loops on the watch's ear when the watch is removed from the hand - the rubber band doesn't extend to the ears watch! - The loop slides across the entire rubber band!

    I think it's a first in modern times with different references for different markets, and there are usually some differences between Japan models with different references (like 6306 vs 6309).

    And just for thought.
    SLA015: LE version of SBDX017
    SLA017: Japan market SBDX019 (identical).

    Very strange. When SBDX019 appeared I already knew the correct non Japan reference was SLA017. So I was sure the SBDX019 was a black dialed non LE SLA017, it would have made perfect sense. But I was obviously wrong and now the confusion is at it's max. :)

    I happened to read here there will be 2000 for each market (https://www.plus9time.com/blog/2017/...y-and-thoughts)

    /quote:

    The international release is the SLA017J1 and the Japanese release is the SBDX019. Both models will be limited to 2000 units each.
