    I took this shot Friday afternoon with my Smartphone for my "wristshot of the day."
    While certainly not the best shot, I love the way the only text that the camera resolved was the SEIKO logo... what a clean look

    I dream to have this beautiful SLA017 but it's too expensive for a Seiko. Well on the other hand I bought a SPB051 with a Uncle Seiko waffle strap. Besides, I find the whole superb.

    MERKUR, sharkey, 54watch, and armida all have homages now should you still want the look of the 62mas. The Armida version uses a case that is especially similar shape to the SLA017.

    Or look for a preowned 62MWW from Manchester Watch Works. Mine is below.

    Enjoy your 051, looks like a nice watch!

    Wow - very nice images of your SPB051, sir! I wouldn't mind owning one - a super-nice addition to the Prospex line

Is it by design for some reason? I can't believe it's all botched alignment. BTW, the bracelet is horrible, just a bit better than the one on a $300 SRP775.

    TA again for information.

    I found that on a German Forum :

    You can't really go by 2D photos - all it takes is the camera-lens not being perfectly perpendicular to the watch, potential distortion of a domed lens and so on.
    But let's assume there really is a difference.... .That difference (that seems to bother you apparently more than the crude bevels of the window-frame...) is perhaps ~0.2MM...


    In any event... TGIF!

    I'm far more bothered by the fact that I could always spot such nuances
