It's a few days in for me. The watch is growing on me. Just like with the SLA017 though, I'm not the biggest fan of the metal keeper. They should have gone with a silicone double keeper. I know that the silicone keepers can get a little sticky, but I'd think it would match better. Seiko got lazy and didn't invest in another strap design. A recreation of the XGL strap would have been nice, but that would have cost too much :-o

Thanks guys!

Strangely, I was never a black/gold guy, but this watch somehow made it right.

I do love my SBDX, but it is nice to have a new grail. That is a beautiful watch.

I returned mine pretty well on receipt for a full refund from Jura watches (in the UK).

I'm a massive Seiko fan & have had high end versions before, but this one left me cold I'm afraid.

What makes it look like an aftermarket dial and hands? I can’t put my finger on it.

I frankly couldn’t even appreciate the dial and handset when I saw one. Was too flabbergasted by the enormous proportions. :doh:

I loved the dial and hands. The case is silly thick, though.

I got an email from a Seiko JDM dealer late last night. He had my name down for an SBEX007 (i.e. the SLA025) and has one (1) at a nice discount, if anyone would like it.

I was so incredibly in on this one when it was announced at the end of last year. I guess I'm glad it isn't my cup of tea because I don't know how I could have afforded one.

It’s a classic Seiko look on a stupidity big micro-made looking case.
