Thread: Am I too late for this beauty

    Am I too late for this beauty

    Just saw this on Watchtime, and I am loving it.



    But, not sure if I am too late as there are only 1,000 pieces. Did a search and didn't find too many places on sale.

    Thanks for the link! Much appreciated. My bad for not listing the model number.

    From Watchtime, the MSRP was indicated as $2,340....they are already jacking up the prices....

    1,000 pieces didn't sound that limited when I first saw it but for a company as big as seiko, and seeing as how they're selling at a premium, it seems pretty limited now.

    It WILL sell out quick, but I think you could easily secure one still. If you contact K. Higuchi or S. Kobayashi from Tokeikan (on Rakuten) I'm sure they'll be able to get one and give you a quote. RRP is JPY 280,000. Someone on this forum has one on order so some pics will be coming soon I'm sure

    That's a beaut. Always wanted to try out a marine master. Don't know if my puny 6.9 inch wrists can fit it though. Love he gilt dial on that one though reminds me of my black bay, minus the red.

    Pretty retro cool, but then again, isn't a regular MM300 pretty retro anyway? Might just be that mine is a little older and therefore has some French vanilla going on in the lume area, but I think it's got a pretty strong visual link to some of the classic Seiko divers, like the 6309.

    Thanks for the reference. I am also trying my luck with Seiya.
