    SLA017 Owner Thread

    Beautiful reinterpretation of one of my favorite watches. Two niggles:

    1. I don't like how the indices are pushed to the center of the dial to line up with the date window. At this price point, they should've created a bigger date disk. My Oris ProPilot is about $1500 list and has a custom date wheel, which was one of the main reasons why I chose it over other excellent pilot watches (Stowa, Sinn, IWC).

    2. I don't like the rounded corners of the indices. Maybe that is a function of the indices being raised out of the dial rather than applied, but I'd rather have indices with sharp corners like on the original (and the MWW homage).

    Here is the new one (pics from the web):



    And the original for comparison:

    Keep em coming!! That's one of the best photos of the watch I've seen so far and it is probably much more representative of what it looks like in real life than the press renderings and the horrible BaselWorld photos. As a prospective owner of this model I am so excited and I now have absolutely zero hesitations of paying the price for one of these. Thanks for the photos!

    Couldn't agree more. Now we are getting closer to what it looks like in real life. Although I was only allowed to see it and not handle it, it's clear to me why this watch is twice the price of the MM300.
    What a nice picture!!!

    This is not the place to voice your dissenting views as to the aesthetics or value of this watch. Kindly take them elsewhere, the rest of us are only here for the photos and not to scroll down pages and pages of personal opinions.

    Agreed. It's beautiful, but also priced for perfection.

    Nice. Thanks for sharing. Sometimes, Seiko pushes out some turds. Not this time; not to me, anyway.
