    SLA017 gets released:
    39% love it
    30% think it is too expensive
    30% are only interested in bracelet and clasp
    1% dislikes it
    ... I like it and hope to see a regular/mass production in the future!

    I would agree if it would have been a regular edition. But since its that iconic and very limited (2000 pieces) I think its okay. Honestly, there are thousands of Seiko fans/collectors worldwide who are willing to buy it.
    (fictive example) Assuming it would cost "only" 1,5k new, I believe you could resell it for over 5k since the demand would be huge and many of us would grab it at that price point while only 2000 are available in total.

    It would be a no brainer to release a reg edition sometime in the future priced near the MM300. They would cover people who love the MM300 but hate its size (me) :D

    Me as well. I think MM300 looks and is indeed better, but I refuse to wear 44mm watch.

    Received SKX013 today and absolutely loving it. Even on that plastic strap.

    IMHO the most desirable diver out there. Couldn't take my eyes off it when I saw it in Basel. Congratulations!!!

    The polish and attention to detail bring this up way over the usual Seiko. Anyone entertaining continued ideas of this being a $1k watch is being delusional imo.

    Well said, I had a look at one in Melbourne yesterday, and the quality is definitely better than the MM300. The bezel, the crystal and the dial in particular look like a much more expensive watch. Just can't get over the asking price of 5500 AUD here, so close to pulling the trigger though

    much better shot - i suspect this watch will photograph better in softer indirect light - looks like the details are in the finishing.

    Eagerly waiting to see one mounted on bracelet
