Some of the Landmasters over the years, however, have been pretty damn cool, almost in an early Anonimo San Marco way in design quirkiness -- never owned one but still browse occasionally. I've always though the Landmaster line is the modern answer to what we've all wanted with the MM300 seeing how they refuse to alter that crown jewel. It could be a great Prospex interpretation of what the SBGE001/015 is to the GS line. Imagine it.
If they were able to downsize it to a 40-42mm model in Ti, and with 200m WR, like the SBGE virtually is as a GS/GMT dive watch, they could redefine the line with a grand slam which coincides with the SBDX017.
They'd need to ditch the SBDB015. As cool as the watch is based on the testament of it's owners, it's sort of an overpriced and oversized ugly duckling too, and lacks the compass bezel.
Seiko agrees which is even more confusing:

One of the most sought-after exhibits at the Seiko Museum in Tokyo is the stunning Landmaster series of limited edition sportswatches. Like F1 racers, these timepieces are test-beds of cutting-edge technology that must perform perfectly because human lives are often at stake.
