The 6159 on ebay right now is up to 6200.00 with 8 days left... It's supposed to be NIB. Looks like it. The reissue price might be better...

If legit, that thing should go for a lot more than the current bids. Also, would these have been sold on a tropic strap?
From what I've been told, many things with Seiko were pretty random at this time period. I've seen most original 6159's on the 731 "tire tread", but also a few on the chocolate bar style strap, including one that was extra long and orange in color. So I guess anything is possible.

I wondered that myself. I didn't think so but what do I know... never seen one in person or known anyone that owned one...

I saw someone on another forum say an AD in Australia quoted them $5500 AU. So somewhere around $4300 USD if his numbers are correct.

I wondered that myself. Mine came on the original tire tread strap, but a Google search did turn up some that came on a tropic.

Holy shit. No thanks. Insane price.

Makes me want a $3500 SLA017 :)

I'm almost glad it's $5400. Because at that price I'm out. No need trying to figure out how to make it happen. I do think it's going to be an epic piece of badassery, though.

My $1,650.00 USD Marine Master does a decent job of scratching the 6159 itch. Plus, everything lines up, which is rare for a modern Seiko.

Ain’t that the truth! Hope I get to see one at some point, though.

Yeah, I need the reissue, and the original. But the original is so rare, only one out there is a relumed dial one on eBay. Prices for the original are destined to rise.

(cough) Explorer I Mk2 :shifty:

In all seriousness, it’s shaping up to be a seriously great reissued 6159, but playing in a field with stiff competition. My large dive watch budget got spent already, with no regrets.

It looks great. Money no object it would be mine but finding a SBDX012 again would be my choice at half the price.
