Technically the Padi is not a limited edtition, i.e not numbered and rather a special edition (whatever that means).
And it does not come with an additional rubber strap, at least mine came only on bracelet IIRC.

yeah..i think this part from Seiko need to be re-visited.
The LE are nice... but there should be a guideline.. even if it is from Thailand.

The LE ARE creating waves with many followers. It is an excellent start for Seiko to get good collectors up the bandwagon...
but things like no running number and the package difference in different countries and different dealers will be an issue.

The band alone is well worth the extra money in many some cases.

I am the happy owner of a Blue Lagoon and I fully agree the rubber (silicon?) strap is a worthy addition to an otherwise underwhelming stainless steel strap with an unacceptably cheap looking and feeling clasp. Can't Seiko charge us 100 bucks more and improve their bracelets once and for all? I've been wearing one of my triple six Sea Dwellers (?) these past few weeks and it's really pleasing to the eye to wear a higher-quality, nicely polished Oyster bracelet, even if it's the vintage version, with a stamped clasp. Huge difference!

agree with the lower quality strap from this range of product.
I am not complaining since those are considered premium line items.

same goes for Sapphire Glass and Hi-Beat movement... pretty sure the MM300 have all the right moves... but at a high premium.

WOW~!
so everything is there~!!!!


Cool~!

would like to here from you ....Which is the best Strap for Rubber?...Steel? ...Leather ??? as in the FIT/Quality and Price.
Color and Style is rather subjective.
bracelet for me.
easier to wear. always the right size (not too tight, not too loose). waterproof. sweatproof. just put the whole watch under a faucet to clean.

rubber is a far second.
and only if there are holes like that of crafter or isofrane.

leather is for looks only.
i like the Hirsch performance straps, rubber underneath, faux sailcloth or leather on top.

I own all of them. I'll try to get a family photo later.

... What can I say, I adore the Turtle.

Found the Seiko steel bracelet that comes with the turtle a real pain to adjust. Those damn collar pins....

I see I'm not the only one who has pondered about the difference between LE and SE in Seiko land.

agreed. the first time i removed those, i almost lost the collar pin. i didn't even know it was from the watch bracelet.

that's why i use strapcode bracelets, even oyster style ones.
