    If this is true,
    If the watches are 4000 at this price then Seiko plays ball and does with sucker clients!!!

    What are you writing on the back of your watches? XXXX/2000 ???

    Slowly this watch becomes worth as much as a packet of fries ;) !

    Seiko Like Omega
    The Omega limit is chasing another limit
    Every Omega limit in thousands of units
    What's wrong with Seiko?

    A good read thanks, 2000 ea makes more sense than 1500/500.

    I think the 2000/2000 was a theory and debunked in previous discussion on the main thread.

    My issues have nothing about SLA on the watch case.

    I think the Japan SBDX will similarly have no model inscriptions on the watch case.

    So unless someone can find two coinciding serial numbers between the models I think the 2000 overall which was I believe through a Seiko channel is correct.

    Just to show that Seiko is smarter than some people who are presenting themselves as extremely vexatious...

    The watch is being held vertically by buckle and keeper is restrained by a slight increase in width from hitting the case.

    In that case it is OK
    I'm not jealous - I have nothing to say!
    Unusual people will use it,
    There will also be collectors
    I destroyed my Sumo through such a loop.
    Crafter blue is not the original product of Seiko - they did not foresee it
    I am glad that Seiko took this into account

    You have to talk about everything as a Seiko fan - don't offend!!!

    I still think that Seiko overdone the price of this watch

    Best regards

    I can appreciate the apprehension in how this watch is being priced, but you guys have to remember that fit and finish is a different concept from raw technical specs, and from what I'm seeing / reading / hearing, the SLA017 has a very high level of fit and finish befitting of its price. This is a higher end watch than even the SBDX017, on top of it being an LE. Now if it's not worth it for you, that's fine, but it's damn sure worth it to me and plenty of other people.
    I ordered my from Timeless Luxury too. Have you preordered from them before, just wondering how the process was?

    4000 is still a limited run.

    You just have to be aware of this duality.

    It's just simple marketing. Slap "limited edition" on anything and it makes it more desirable because of its limited numbers means that:
    - some people will buy them to hoard and resell later = faster sales
    - some people who like it will impulse buy for fear of not being able to get one = faster sales
    - limited editions tend to sell closer to the RRP too as sellers and buyers add more value to its scarcity = more profits
    - limited edition means they get to put out a press statement and associated marketing = more publicity

    FWIW Joe Kirk confirmed there are 2000 total units, not 4000.
    At the time he didn't know the distribution, but 500/1500 doesn't sound too far off.

    Nice, I PMed him a bit earlier to see if he'd come here and clarify with any confirming information regarding this surprisingly still lingering sla017/sbdx019 confusion. Hopefully he finds a little time to drop in.
