I sent through a price-beat request yesterday on this watch. Deepak replied this morning with $235, which I thought was a great price. Refreshed the page after an hour and found it dropped even further to $229. Probably the lowest price ever?
Google cache shows it was $349 on November 21 prior to the BF/CM sales: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:OQA7tz...

Word of warning: If you intend to remove the plastic shroud, the three screws are 1.5mm hex. Don't use a t6 torx, or worse, a phillips screwdriver like some youtubers have done. Seiko put a threadlocker on the screw threads so be firm but gentle; never force it. I took the shroud off my SNE577P recently out of curiosity and one of the screws had a lot more threadlocker on it than others. Just needed a bit more persuasion but wasn't impossible to unscrew.
Also bought the white SNE545P for $319 because that's been on my wishlist for a while
