    Metal bracelet... this was more difficult than it should have been. The endlink has an awkward shape that meant it got caught/jammed and required some real thinking to remove and put back. This resulted in a small barely visible bend in the bracelet springbar area. It can be buffed to smooth if I take the bracelet out but I won't bother anytime soon.

    I am a bracelet person by nature and I'll leave this one this way for daily wear. I have another coming which I'll leave on strap.

    poverty! The bracelet is almost as good as the seiko sumo. I don't understand and I don't understand why this watch is 2x more expensive than sbdx001 (MM300) Seiko didn't try...!
    In my opinion this watch should not cost more than max 2500$. Seiko was too pricey

    Beautiful watch!! I think / hope mine is coming in about a month time... Is the strap a rubber strap or a silicone band?

    I had a look at one, and next to my MM300, the crown, bezel, crystal and dial are all better finished and of a higher quality. Add in the LE status, I think the Japanese list price of 30% premium over the MM300 is fair. I didn't pull the trigger on one, as the mark up here in Australia is a much bigger premium

    I have sbdx001 for 1800euro and sla015 for 2300euro. Also LE 200 pieces. I still do not share your opinion. SLA017=3600euro/2000 pieces. At this price Seiko could give a chronometer certificate. Still a box of china

    You are acting all John Snow on us now. COSC only certifies Swiss made. And the SBDX001 price isn't €1800 in EU.
