    Wait. Isn't every watch numbered?

    That's been the norm so far. Here's my Landmaster (1998) and Sumo (2015).

    Re: SLA017 Owner Thread

    Do you guys read nothing at all previously written?
    SLA017= SBDX019. 2000 TOTAL, 500 of them will be sold in Japan where the reference is SBDX019. And they are numbered on the back which has been showed a gizillion times.

    This is has been official since the press release in Mars and can still be written both on the Prospex website and in the official press release.

    Fact is, a lot of conflicting information regarding this has been written by various sources and read by all. What is the link to an official statement from Seiko that clearly states what both sla017 and sbdx019 are, and how many of each there are?

    It maybe is not all that important to everybody, but just saying that if there was a clear statement about this from a Seiko source itself, many have not seen it.

    Re: SLA017 Owner Thread

    I am a little unsure of the numbers as well. If you go to Seikos Japan web site, the have the SBDX019 listed as a limited edition of 2000. The Seiko .com website has the SLA017 as a limited edition of 2000. So I would be under the impression that there are 2000 of each reference number.

    Well I guess that answers it. So the SBDX019 is limited to 500 pieces which I would then assume the SLA017 would have 1500, making a grand total for both references 2000.

    It's not rocket science if you actually read the thread. ;)

    but yes, it's very strange that SEIKO uses two different references for the same watch.

    well the Alex Jones-eqsue conspirators don't help either. i don't know if it's the same guy doing it here but in an earlier thread on the watch i believe i remember someone was going off on how it would be 2000 + 2000 = 4000 so Seiko was bilking/ripping/scamming people, lol.

    Hm.. Do appreciate it, and interesting.. But with all due respect it's still not too clear. I have to confess that I can't read kanji for Schmidt-san, and even if this is stating SBDX019 is limited to 500 pieces, it doesn't mention SLA017. It's also unclear what source of publication the image is from - meanwhile as Jlawjj mentioned, on the seemingly official websites of seiko-watch.co.jp and seiko-prospex.com respectively, SBDX019 and SLA017J1 are each independently listed as being limited to 2000 pieces. So even if the image is from a Seiko publication, there's still a lot of conflicting information that's been presented.
