The case makes me think of the round pendant at top of this picture. It's amusing. Image

It’s a different case style so not 100% comparable, 2mm can make a big difference here because the case tapers down more towards the lugs. It’ll cover a lot less real estate overall. It’s less squarish. Maybe shorter too.
Also the crown placement....
Image
I don't like that dial, the blue dial on the NAFt is way better. I also don't like not having crown guards on a sport watch. The cyclops sucks, not because its a cyclops (I didn't mind the one on my ExpII), but I hate a round cyclops for a square date window.

Dimensions look weird, but could be the picture.
I don’t particularly like that specific dial. I’d wear a blue-dialed version. Size may be spot on for me. Liked the naft but it was a tad too large for my taste. I did prefer crown at 4 but like this but unlike you i do like no CH divers like my Oris or Raven, the B.B. ...
I don’t like the X in either one but not a show stopper.
That cyclop is by far the worst thing for me but wonder how it looks in the metal.

I am betting this is typical "hate on the crappy stock Seiko pics" and then when they are actually released 80% of the people here will try one, including me. :rolleyes:

That blue one Brice posted looks a million times better. I'm tempted.

I hope it looks better IRL. And if you can get the cyclop off, a black one would work great on natos.

Not bad but I still hate the cyclops. The indices kinda look like handbells though.

David (59Yukon01) just baptized those "baby turds" on wus.
I don't think we have to search for a new nickname for these

It isn't terrible, but something with the proportions is off...

By the way the new SRPC23K1 sunray grey dial looks nice and BLNR looking one SRPC25K1

I’m in for a grey one. I just need to figure out where they are going to be sold. This Worn & Wound article says they are JDM only, but the dealer I bought my LE Cocktail Time from says they are not a Japanese model.

I also thought this one stood above the other new releases.

Ok, I know it’s a silly quibble, but I think Seiko budget auto divers should be day-date. 6309, SKX series, NAFT, day-date is part of the style.
If someone tells you "There's no such thing as a stupid question", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.
