    Dislike. Would have to be an awesome Seiko for me to get a watch with it. Would go old school model every time.

    Maybe we should have a poll, see who likes and who doesn't like (percentage wise) the Pro Spec X

    But the actual design of the X doesn't fit with the rest of the scripting as well, it's just fugly, like it's meant to be on a fun $75 toy childs watch with a Mickey Mouse theme...

    I mean, just look at it FGS lol it's out of place

    And with an 'AUTOMATIC' that has a constant seconds hand, the whole 'AUTOMATIC' line is also a waste IMVHO

    They should just do it like the real old ones

    Reality for me is how much less busy the dial would look sans the X.

    What I would like on the SBDX023, though, is for the seconds hand to be polished steel like on your SBDX001. For me, either all polished steel or all gilt, and it is still weird on mine--looks like the sweep seconds comes from another watch. I was very tempted to pick up a used SBDX001 or SBDX017 instead, and there's even a brand new '017 that I found for sale. However, a Seiko AD here gave me a good price on the '023/SLA021, so went with that.... In the foreseeable future though, your SBDX001 and the 017 will likely be more collectible pieces to own.

    Hmm… I actually don’t mind it, Harlan haha :D ..I hear this a lot from enthusiasts, and it is hard to pinpoint whether the dislike for the Prospex logo is due to what is perceived as downgrade on aesthetics, or whether it is because these owners want their watches to be clear differentiated, i.e. exclusive, from what they feel are “lesser” Seiko divers. Personally, I feel the inclusion of the X is actually consistent with the inclusiveness that underlies the spirit of Japanese watches, Seiko included. Citizen uses their Promaster logo across a chasm of price ranges, and no one complains, but then again, Citizen doesn’t attract the same crowd as Seiko does.

    Again personally, I would love to be in the scenario where a random stranger wearing a Prospex Turtle might mistakenly think that mine is just another variant of his watch ..Inclusiveness is what brought me to Seiko, and in a strange way, the ugly X on this dial embodies that
