FYI
product code: SBDX017
upgrades:
  1. lume lasts 60% longer
  2. hard coating applied on the case partially
  3. signed crown
  4. newly formulated rubber strap

price is 20k JPY more than the sbdx001 officially
but if you purchase one from rakuten global, the price diff could be 50k

Watch Analog watch Watch accessory Fashion accessory Jewellery


new strap
Watch accessory Strap Buckle


strap of sbdx001
Watch accessory Technology Strap


Will you pay 50k more for the newcomer?
btw, "001" sounds more awesome than "017" IMO

Here ya go seiko finish the upgrades then ask for a price increase.
product code: SBDX017
updates:

  1. lume lasts 60% longer
  2. hard coating applied on the case partially
  3. signed crown
  4. newly formulated rubber strap
  5. "6mm Thick Sapphire Crystal" same as the Orient 300m Sat Diver uses
I did not think the new 300m MM 017 had a sapphire crystal, but rather hardlex like older SBDX001 version. Please confirm. Thank you.

Overall, I'm not sure I would have paid the extra money, had not already owned a MM300. Added lume performance ? Sounds great but the one on the old model was already more than good enough for me. Signed crown ? I never understood why people asked for that, and I much prefer the clean looks of the old one. DiaShield treatment ? Ah, now we're talking! But where is it applied? The case itself ? not really needed but not bad. The buckle ? That would be a real plus since the original in titanium is a scratch magnet.

But even if they dia-shielded the buckle, would I pay the extra 50k yens depends only on how much it'd cost to get a DiaShield version of the buckle... ;-)
