Hi guys!

There is a lot threads that started as "New model coming in XX/XXXX", "Holy ****, look at these new watches..", "Upcoming Seiko XXXX lineup" etc. Nowadays these threads left behind. F21 subforum filled by hundreds of obsolete and junk threads. Now I think it's time to start the thread that contains all NEW, UPCOMING, and maybe rumoured Seiko JDM/International models in one place.


Let the thread begin!

Old SUMO with minor improvements, such as NEW LumiBright and Prospex logo on the dial coming in october 2015. The model ref. SBDC031. The MSRP price not downgraded or upgraded, it's still 60,000 JPY, and there is no DiaShield.



As one member said, i would like to say: "bastardization of prospex lineup continues..."

Why do you say that? I've been pretty happy with how the Prospex line has been handled the past couple years, with the exception of a few of the low end Prospex models not really making sense wearing that label, but it's a minor gripe.

The PS logo clutters up the dial too much and makes it look too edgy - which the Sumo is not. The lume is already radioactive and no DiaShield… no incentive here to get excited about this.

Do aliens really exist?

I prefer the old dial. Will have to get one of those before they are out stock and this version is the only option available.

Totally agreed. I also prefer old dial, & the 'S' on crown looks nicer to me. New 'X' stamped, looks 'cheap' (to me). Most properly they try to cut cost. Sad fir thus point, but hope new version lumbrite does make better promise in that.

You are correct. Now I have to get a Sumo. Me and everyone else. I hate that Prospex logo. Why can't they just put it on the crown????

Diashield would be most welcome on Sumo. Mine scratched so easily and I marked the bracelet whilst sizing it on vinyl workspace.

Damn, Seiko "Prospexified" the Sumo too!

I'm waiting until we see the SKX007 get the same treatment: the Prospex symbol added to the dial and crown and absent any technical upgrades.

:mad:

This is a great idea for a thread. It'll make it much easier than having a new thread for every new release.

So has anyone else figured out some of the added features with the new SBDC031? Ive been looking everywhere for info. It would be nice to see an upgraded movement or sapphire crystal.
