I spoke with Higuchi.I'm pretty sure it's not a custom mod, but a new model that Seiko is about to introduce.
I'm not sure if the above chrono24 link is to an AD, but I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to ping Higuchi or Chino and ask to see when they can get their hands on it. They would probably give you close to the best price as well.
chrono24 is a fountain of misinformation at times.;-)Thanks for finding out. The chrono24 sounds a bit fishy then, cant imagine he can 100% secure the pieces from seiko, so wonder what happens if he has more pre orders than watches next summer..
its an extra $250.00 us than the regular mm300....not crazy at allNice subtle differences but price
Look like Seiko is trying a new price at the same time, will be interesting to see how well it will retain its value over time.
$2700 a bit steep considering seiko has a list price of 280000 yen and that amounts to a little more tha $2300 usI'll be watching closely. Really hoping I can get my hands on one. Not keen on the idea of pre-ordering something for $2700 (I have no experience with Chrono).
do they?? because higuchi does not have them yet...seiya cannot access them yet.....they are not released till end of january so how do lots of sellers have them??A lot of seller in Japan have the le mm300. Maybe Seiko reserved a number of items for each one. Maybe 5, 10, 20...
clearly the sbdx001 is discounted as the msrp is 250000yen....but we know from seiya and higuchi they sell for cheaper....I wonder what the price at release will be? The yen is down right now, but the pricing on the SBDX012 seems to be at the older and higher yen value. Example: 3S has it on Rakuten for $2512 and the SBDX001 at $1570. No way in hell I'd pay nearly $1k over a regular MM300 for this.

lol. no thanks. clearly someone looking to rip someone off. these are no more than 2400 us at the most.......this guy is clearly looking to scam some sucker.......for $2000 less i can get a regular mm300.....
AZ finetime doesent even have the regular mm300........do not order now
wait for it to come out
this way you will pay msrp or less
or wait until someone flips it
if you are in the USA email timeless and Arizona fine time and ask them if they expect it
and what price can they offer
lol. not my style though.....truth is in this day and age of the internet if its too good to be true it usually is.....anyways im not doubting that some of these guys on ebay whatnot are taking pre-orders but what im saying is their is no guarantee one will receive a watch......or worse....get their money back......lots of tricks...such as 'non refundable' deposits......just saying......Good advice Snakeeyes......unless you want to throw everyone else off the trail!!! JK. Good looking out!
