    Moral of the story; the grass isn't always that much greener even when you're paying 8x the price!
    Enjoy your Seiko - they look fantastic and offer great value for money.

    I noticed the same thing once when an AD once proudly handed me a sub to look at when I wasnít even discussing or looking at Rolex. I pointed out a misaligned bezel and things got a bit frosty even though I was polite about it.

    I guess it shows that QC misses can happen at any level as can perfect quality. Itís really how the issues are dealt with that counts for me. Mistakes happen, but how they are backed up or not is whatís important.

    But now Iím curious...did you accept the sub?

    Nope, unfortunately I couldn't 'unsee' the misalignment so wasn't willing to stump up the best part of £6,000 for the pleasure (or as I'm sure Rolex would insist, the privilege) of ownership.
    Like busses, I'm sure that another one will be along at some time:)

    Can anyone with the SBDC071 (Padi) confirm if it has 2 different lume colours? Gnomon's site shows two and it's got me scratching my head over here...

    edit: Well how about that, Seiko's JP site shows the two tone lume too. I had no idea! Makes me want one even more now!

    good catch! I didn't know that the PADI version or any other Seiko does two tone lume. I like it, makes it handy for those divers (the less than 1% of us).

    I'm in the same boat. I've never seen a Seiko with two tone lume and it really threw me off seeing that pic this morning. I've always wanted a watch with blue lume.

    I think most, if not all, of the PADI versions of Seiko watches have two-colored lume.
