    "It's also quite satisfying knowing that the watch is assembled by the same team(s) that work on the Grand Seiko mechanical watches at Seiko's Shizuku-ishi Watch Studio (Morioka Seiko Instruments)."

    It is more than just satisfying to know this - it is why it has been priced so high.

    Great review: This should change the minds of critics if they could be objective.

    I had a testy exchange with someone on FB, who basically said we SLA017 owners were paying only for nostalgia. The irony is, people like that dude say it's worth paying for Grand Seikos but not for this because the SLA017 is branded a Seiko. Going by that logic, aren't they paying for a brand rather paying the right price for the right product?

    And yes, I think the SLA017 is priced at the correct level. Seiko may be accused by some of making the SLA017 an LE to inflate its prices, but I think it's more a case of Seiko pre-empting prejudice against high prices for a Seiko. To my mind, Seiko wanted to produce a top-class homage to its first diver and so didn't stint on quality. This costs money, perhaps more money than they think many are willing to pay for a Seiko, so they had to make it an LE to recoup their cost of producing the SLA017.

    Thanks Regarding pricing... yes, quite the heated debate. I'm personally satisfied with the price Seiko gave it and if someone thinks it's not worth the given price, well that's okay too; But to argue about it ad nauseam is not...

    Great photos. I too think Seiko priced this at a point where it instantly becomes classic. If it were in the $2000 range, I dont think they could have made it as nice as it is.

    In person this watch is stunning. In photos, its gorgeous too.

    Amazing how close in design and appearance the re-editions of SM 300 and the 62MAS cases get, it's as almost the same design studio came up with the case.

    As for the 62MAS/8LMAS...I love mine more and more each day!
