I love the SBDX012 - Gold accents and all, so it seems it is a limited edition, I presume we would go to our usual scorces (Chino, Seiya, Higuchi etc) and its slated for a January 2015 release.
Couldn't agree more with your words. I also understand how the gold accents resonate with the Brand heritage, but I think that's a poor try. This model needs something else than gold accessorizing to step into this decade.Not a fan of the gold accents at all, I get their place in Seiko heritage but I like the look of the original better.
If Seiko wants to improve the MM300 just add a sapphire crystal, give it a true five link bracelet, regulate the movement, better crown and a machined clasp.
Nice! Thanks for the head's up.
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).
x2No way in hell I'd pay nearly $1k over a regular MM300 for this.
Well, that's the cost of getting something highly sought after. Th mm300 has lots of discount since its been out for years.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.
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?
