That looks awesome. I see $750 on the used market after you ballers (looking at you, Brice) buy new and flip to me ;)

I like the fact that the black isn’t blingy. Not a fan of black coatings that are shiny like all those ‘gunmetal’ finishes...

I like the case, hands, color, etc. Pricey, though.

I do, too. Even the handset somehow looks right on this.

LE of 500? They’ll definitely hold their value. Look at the silly prices on some of the LE Turdles.

new topper edition collab with seiko

Post by dinexus » Mon Feb 11, 2019 8:24 am

Was at the packed Topper launch event on Saturday for the launch of this thing:

Image

Pretty damned neat. The SPB077 has been my favorite new Seiko diver of the last few years (Sumo was too wide, Turtle too tall, Transocean too much bracelet integration, etc.), and it's nice to see a well-priced all-black option for the USA after missing out on the Australia-only ninja turtle last year. Slight price premium over the blue-dialed strap version, but not too bad. 44mm case if you haven't worn one, but I'll be damned if it doesn't wear extremely close in size and comfort to my 42mm 2500 Planet Ocean. Very nicely executed.

I like it a lot. I don't know if I can put that kind of cash into it but it is a hot watch. A lot nice than the hodonkee shit.

Zach, how does the bezel work with the case?


I think a matte finish would be a better match.

Love it.

Is Topper actually expecting $1000 or is there a discount from MSRP?

Did you buy one?


There is already a thread on these, maybe a mod can merge this onto that thread.

Just awesome. I've been eyeing these lately deciding if I want a Pepsi version or a different one. But this is hot

^ this. While I prefer Terry’s GS handset mod, this LE doesn’t look terrible with the stock hands

Ahh sorry dudes – didn't realize there was already a thread for this. Mods, thanks for merging.

Matt, good question – the bezel didn't actually work at all in the prototype, didn't have a click spring :grin:
In terms of finish though, I think it works really well. The side of the case has a contrasting brushed/polished finish that looks really badass in black. Bezel kinda hides a little bit into the polished upper portion of the case, because it has the same finish, but it's contrasted by the insert itself.
