Very nice and certainly iconic pieces, however when I think of the price they're going to be.........................

I paid £2700 for this, which makes it a premium seiko watch , but as a seiko addict for many years, it’s a grail watch for me. I’m sure the prospex versions are better value for money. However I love this and would never sell it

I  must admit that I am not as keen on this watch as I feel I ought to be. What puts me off is the shape of the case beneath the dial/bezel. It reminds me of a squashed cow-pat oozing outside its proper parameters beneath the dial/bezel. Sorry - I know I should be ashamed of myself.:biggrin:

What is surprising, after many years of avoiding them, I now wear similar almost daily because their comfort over aesthetics wins hands down. :) The only thing about this one is the price would put me off buying it as an everyday "rough and tumble" watch. :thumbsup:

Well always watching, a squashed cow-pat is a novel way of describing it, first time bezel and cow-pat have appeared n the same sentence im sure.:biggrin:

I like this a lot, squashed cow pat or not:clap:. Not too sure I’d want to stump up a grand for one though:swoon: even though it is an iconic piece. I’m actually quite liking the green dial too.
