    This watch is a faithful reproduction of the famous Seiko ref. 6217 diver from 1965, as well as a modern re-interpretation of the classic, with an updated design. This is the most anticipated Seiko watch of this year

    [QUOTE=zuiko;42648170]The box is like any other white box
    except that the paper is made in China

    The inner box is a little more special being like a GS blue

    For a $3000 watch they could have made the box a wee bit more grandeur. Stunning watch nevertheless

    Re: SLA017 Owner Thread

    It's a watch I know that's going to be hard to top for me but it's not a love at first sight watch tbh. It has its flaws and the dome sapphire is probably the biggest factor. It's very reflective; the crystal, the bezel, the dial are all shiny and the case and bracelet are all tool. It's a bit of a clash but I've warmed to it.

    The best thing for me is the size and thickness. Its proportions are very traditional but some may find it small. The clasp belongs on a much bigger watch imo. It's totally not in keeping with the case size.

    Enough words. Here's a couple of pics from today.

    zuiko you're killing me with your pics, lol. I'll be grinding my teeth till mine arrives, thanks for the share !

    By the way I'm surprised the critics haven't complained about it not coming in a lacquered wooden box yet. o_O

    Oooh, that top car shot is exactly what I'm hoping to see. Looks lovely.

    I think a brushed rehault would have brought balance to the watch. Dome +sunburst+glossy rehault is a big much.

    Zuiko, you have a lot of new watches that you seem to say are going to be hard for you to top... Yet you just keep buying more! :)
    Thanks for sharing the pics and your impressions. Looks great. I'm pleased to be making this my first and possibly my only (at least for a good long while) Seiko diver's watch in my collection.

    I too am concerned about the stock strap being too long for someone with a thin wrist like my 6 1/8 incher. Sounds like there could be a bit much of annoying excess strap flopping around when snug fitted.

    At least I too am a bracelet guy, so will tend to use that option.
    Did the watch happen to come with a spring bar tool?

    Oh, and congratulations and enjoy!

    Of course we have. This is just not the thread to do so.
