I prefer the padi red and blue. Black, orange, and blue might be too much. Who do they think they are, Farer?

I like it, but with the Topper LE coming I don't need another.

I suspect that Rolex has reached the point where they could release a turd with some hands stuck in it and a bunch of TRF dorks would pay DavidSW 2x MSRP to own it.

Yep hence a two-tone Seadweller. I bet there will be a line for that Turd

That thing... Uh. I get it as a larger alternative to the Sub, but it's still a nice way to wipe their ass with their own history. I guess all those people who have been calling for a Pt DSSD should have some hope.

They sort of dipped their toes into the idea with the recent Tudor sub monstrosity.

Anybody have any idea how it’s selling?

It’s amazing how, in spite of the valiant marketing effort from Tudor, nobody is talking about that sub since it was announced.

I guess we are all trying to forget

I had the black dial version, and flipped it because I didn't care for the matte dial. I had been hoping they would come out with a nice sunburst gray, like the turtle, but this is what came out first. Maybe they will do another dial variant soon.


Love this dial.

Just saw this one at the AD yesterday. Looks quite good. This AD in LA had all the watches, thre new 4th Gen Monster, the new Sumo, even the poorly seeling LE SLA025, lol, it's a high end dealer with Blancpain, etc. Probably people don't think of this AD for Seiko, bet these just sit in the cases. But no, they don't have the SLA033.
