Are they going for the full $1k list?
Yes and I’m thinking this one is unique enough to have strong resale too.

The black coating of the case is a major upgrade as well. Instead of the standard PVD treatment, the case is treated with Seiko’s own “super-hard black material,” a coating which still allows the exquisite mixed polishing and brushing of the base stainless steel case to shine through just enough to keep things dynamic.
Cool so it's hardened like my old black turtle was. Great!

And, pre-ordered :thumbsup:

So is the separate invoice for the balance being sent soon, or closer to shipping in July? Doesn't really specify.

That's what I'm hoping. Guess I need to make up my mind quick if only 100 left.

Apparently, there is something about the Diashield terminology that prohibits its use in the US. So let’s just say this watch has a very durable, Seiko-specific technology applied...

True, though the second part is dependent on Canadian Customs, which is a crap-shoot ;)

I don't think they can do both together. I assume it just SS with ip plating.

Any idea how the ip coating it applied over the diashield? I wasn't sure if the two coatings are possible since the diashield seems to be more a polished black chrome.

At least these real life pictures looks as good as what was on the Topper site, unlike the recent Hodonkey deception.ImageImage

July can’t come soon enough.

It’s amazing how two simple changes make such a big difference.
