    Limited Edition SBDC059

    Just got this as I'm on Marc's mailing list. 1,000 pieces.

    Green & Gold dial works for me!
    Seiko SBDC059 automatic dive watch features a Seiko 23 jewel automatic movement that is also hand windable, a date display, a stainless steel bracelet, and highly luminous hands and markers.

    Got it... they are good like that, always mentioning the rough crown threads & so on, the pix of this watch online don't show too many off-centre'd rehauts... there ought be a notch locating it, time will tell.

    Love the language as always, so cute.

    I won't be buying one, too much for me right now anyway. Seiya sold out.. This is the copy from their site about the manufacturing error.

    I've looked at the pix on the long island watch site 3-4 times today, if those are the images that represent it 'I don't like it' lol!

    Somehing about misaligned chapter rings. Doesn't line up with bezel marks or something, sorry vague I know. Probably easy to fix but do you really want to be taking apart a brand new watch after dropping $1000 on it?

    The link I posted at least has Seikos actual marketing images. I quite like the case design, looks good from the side

    Waaa - chaptor ring (rehaut) or rotating ring insert boss ?

    Would have though both really easy to fix, but they should be checked before
    packaging eh.

    I like the blue one too, and never been much of a fan of bracelets. Issues with the chapter ring I hear. On Seiya they even make a point of it in the copy, put me off buying. Somebody said they went through 20 or so at a dealers before finding one that wasn't offset.

    Each to their own, of course, but that's a dogshit picture on that watch ad! Look how badly the case has been clear cut to place on that background. Clearly been done with the magic wand in Pshop, either that or scissors

    Buy the blue version SBDC053

    To me it's nicer & less cash.... watches like this shouldn't have bracelets anyway, as if SEIKO sold a 62MAS with anything but a tropic strap

    It's not doing it for me either... just doesn't all gel nicely this one.

    The lug edges aren't quite right, too sharp or something, hate to say it but some might even say the case looks 'cheap'.. the dial hue as well, it's not as nice as it could be... to me it doesn't quite make it...

    Then again, vs the real deal a 62MAS what does make it, 6159 maybe...

    And too make SEIKO L.E.'s lately as well.

    Hardly limited when there's so many.

    Seiya has sold at least one ... not a fan personally, although the green sumo looks quite nice
