    Thanks, larger than I thought. But, any dive type watch at 40mm should go just fine even on the slimmest of mens wrists. And obviously looks great on a not so small wrist like yours too

    I've already bought into the hype for this piece, and pre-ordered one for myself. But, seriously, Seiko should thank Forums like these for promoting the pre-order frenzy, it's​ marketing genius, it's on autopilot.

    As to serial #1, isn't that the piece that gets shown and passed around at places like Basel? Perhaps later fitted with a working movement and then kept by the manufacturer. Or is that truly a dummy piece, and a true working #1 is manufactured later? I've always doubted that #1 ever actually gets sold to the buying public.

    Question 1: Is the watchuseek forum software randomly rotating images these days?
    Question 2: If not, is there some contagion loose on WUS that causes orientation blindness?

    Been away for a while, don't want to catch anything

    The 001/2000 is a prototype and there are lots of 1/2000 prototypes of this model. They will never hit the public.

    Seiko press conference clearly states 2000 examples of the 62Mas reissue will be produced and I have info directly from SEIKO that SLA017 = SBDX019. Just let it go, misinformation like not accepting presented facts and not going to the source for the information is why there has been a confusion. To me however it's been 100% clear since Baselworld that there will be a total of 2000 examples.

    Seiko better learn earn from this experience and never ever ever again give the same watch two different references.

    SLA015
    Real watch of my real Polish friend bought in Austria

    Seiko Star Wars C-3P0 SDGC015 001/600 - I saw the auction in Japan!

    Seiko 5 Fuji Limited Edition!
    There are no limit numbers anywhere
    There is only a standard serial number
    Should be called Special Edition
    How much is it to be limited? One hundred / one thousand or a million?
    There is a Seiko email on this issue that is their secret
    For me, Seiko plays ball with the clients

    OP did confirm there was no model reference anywhere on the watch. Just serial number xxxx/2000. Mystery solved.

    Consumerism ?

    You probably don't understand one, or you don't want to understand.
    The price of the watch increases when the number of Limited Edition pieces is decreasing.


    Fewer copies are more expensive and more desirable - there are less.

    I will laugh last if some LimitedEdition number is repeated in reference SLA017 / SBDX019
