This shouldn’t matter to me but it does. I would never pay over $1K for a Seiko with the X logo on the dial.

What about $8k plus for a crown in the dial? Or $4k for the Pelagos with a paragraph at 6?

The X looks nice, I’ve never understood the issue some have with it.

Makes little sense, but that logo, which I’m ok with on cheap Seikos, annoys me on more expensive watches. When buying my current MM300 I opted for the non-logo version even though I love the gold hands of the new one.

As far as logos go, I don't think it is bad at all.
In fact I think it is cleverly designed.

Professional Specification = Prospex = P.S shaped like an X

Some graphic designer is probably very proud of himself :lol:

I have SBDX017 so no logo on dial, but I do get one on the crown

I like everything about that. At 10mm and Ti, I'll bet it wears like a dream.

I was thinking about this one until I realized it was radio, not GPS. Here in Ohio, I have trouble getting my radio G-Shocks to sync.

I like the Astron and as far as I can remember the Astrons have been stupidly huge. I would definitely wear this one.

Yes, the GPS ones are still too big, must be the size of the module (or the fact that Seiko REALLY likes clown watches). Plus, I bet the price would be much higher than what it is (IIRC most GPS Astrons are around 2k)

Also couple questions for you guys that are smarter than me:
1/ what do you think is the purpose of the 24h inner bezel?
2/ about the subdial at 6: I suppose the hour hand is 24h like a glycine airman original?
Thanks

Hi Andrea,

1. The inner index is showing time zones, not a 24 hour scale. If the function is similar to the GPS version, you pull out the crown and the seconds hand points to the time zone. Set by rotating the crown. For example, here in Ohio (EST), pull the crown and rotate until the seconds hand points at -5 (-4 for DST).

2. I'm guessing yes on 24 hour hand, based on the 24 indication on the subdial. Should be able to set separately for a second time zone.

Yeah, most GPS Astrons are around 2k, plus or minus. Some of the 5X-series GPS Astrons are down to around 42.8mm x 12.3mm, so a lot less clown size than they were.

I kinda like this one:

Hey guys, did you have time to see the 2021 Seiko Prospex Black Series?

The series includes the Monster, Tuna, and Samurai. With each of the
new watches having 200m water resistance, as well as Hardlex crystals,
nice black dials with beige Lumibrite lume, and sleek unidirectional bezels.


First up, the Monster gives you a 42.4mm PVD coated stainless steel
case, cool rubber strap, along with Seiko 4R36 beneath it all.


Image


Image


Then there is the Tuna with it's 46.7mm black PVD case, solar
powered V157 movement, and sporty rubber strap.


Image


Next you have the Samurai with it's 43.8mm PVD case, stealthy rubber
strap, and Seiko 4R35 behind everything..


Image


Image


All three next to one another...


Image


Horologii, Monochrome, and Seiko with much more for you...

Samurai is kinda cool and the Monster would have been OK without that huge wart over the day/date.

The Solar Tuna is cool but would need a shroud upgrade from the plastic. It does make a difference.
