Cue the “that looks like shit” comments based on the crap renderings, followed by a much better final product in the metal.

So does the second row show a lesser Marinemaster style model like they did with the 62mas?

Yup. I'm out as it'll probably have long lugs as well

Is the last one a green MM300?

I think so. The gold accents on that one could make it pretty awesome in person.

Yonsson kept saying this was coming. Will most likely be out of my price range, but damn, I want it.

Wow, that looks great. And it's an 8L55 Hi-Beat movement. That watch deserves to be reissued as a Hi-Beat. :clap:
Edit: Just noticed it wasn't the 8L35.

Also, I'm pretty sure this will wear smaller than the specs.

If it's anything like the SBEX, it will suck. But I'm keeping my eye out.

The MM300 case is 44mm and it wears much smaller to me. Hoping this one will wear like that one.

I'm wondering whether this case is more true to the original, maybe slightly lower profile than the current MM. How did your 6159 wear?

That green one is a laugh. Just what the world needed - A Seiko produced homage to the Rolex LV.

The 6159 wears totally different from the MM since it since it isn't top heavy at all and it is thinner than the MM. Shave 3mm off the back of a MM and you will have a 6159 imo.

Yep. Which makes me think (hope?) that this one will wear like a dream.

I'm guessing the retail on this will be north of $5K. That said, if it is as awesome as I think it might be, it won't ever lose its value.

I’m not sure that’s the impression I’m getting. It seems like they’re using the color scheme they’ve been using on the LE GS models with the gold accents they’ve used. If the green was a similar shade and no gold I might agree.

Sunburst green dial, plus dull green rotatable diving bezel...

Yeah. Clearly an original design fully in harmony with Seiko's historic design language.

If you know me, you know I don't like big watches, but I wore the original 6159 and loved it. If the case is a re-creation of the original case, it'll wear beautifully for most people, it wears more like a 42mm.
