    Extremely nice

  • Nice. want, but I am afraid it's going to wear big

    • Yeah theyre big and also quite thick too

    • These wear smaller than other 44mm watches I've worn. It's a great design. It's worth trying one on if you can.

        Pretty sure it's gonna look like a dinner plate on my asian wrist

        • lololol ok that's probably relevant context

    It's nice to be nice

    • profound comment

  • Do you think the limited edition will make it worth something in 50 years? What volume is a normal watch production run?

      not for a seiko

      Nah. Even luxury watches lose value over that timespan, and I think gaining value is a recent and short term phenomenon.

      • In nominal or real terms? In nominal dollar terms, its fairly difficult to "lose" value, due to inflation. A Rolex Submariner in 1957 costs $150: (https://www.ablogtowatch.com/rolex-prices-past-60-years-reve...).

        In real terms, it still would have gained. Quoting the article, $150 in 1957 is equivalent to $1,265 in 2014 dollars, while the watch costs $7,500 in 2014.

        That article was published in 2014 with data going back to 1957 so I don't think it is a recent phenomenon.

        • Well fair enough. That's about 3% annual growth. I guess my opinion is that people use 'investment' to justify what is really a purchase for fun more than anything else. I don't think the current watch price inflation will hold up in any way shape or form in the long run. Who wants an old watch? Not many people.

          • @gakko: Agree that I don't like the term "investment", I rather prefer "collection", and it just happens to appreciate. At least for now.

            3% is in inflation-adjusted terms tho. In nominal terms, from $150 to $7.5k in 57yrs, that's closer to 7%pa:

            (7500/150)^(1/57) = 1.07,

            and as such, the return is comparable to other investments (acknowledge not equities, counting cap gains & dividends)

            I think in terms of who wants an old watch, the argument is that something like the Speedmaster or Submariner is relatively asethically unchanged for that many years, and a model from the 80s or 90s is a viable like-for-like substitute to buying new , whose RRP gets more expensive every year from inflation, or is unobtainable (like Rolex). So a used model will peg at some fixed % discount to a new mint model, which gets priced higher year on year and that's what's driving the increase in the used market.

      Everything Seiko is limited edition. Everything

      (It's marketing, not rare)

      Seiko "limited additions" are basically standard production runs.
      This one is 8,000 which is very high for a limited run.
      There are countless new releases of "limited edition" runs each year.
      Buy to wear and enjoy.

      Probably Chinese will pay for good money if lucky number engraved is involved

      • So really 3 desirable copies: #0008, #0088 and #0888

        • I won’t mind to pay $399 if can guarantee the number I want…

          Besides not only the numbers you mentioned, are looking great… even a victorian car plate worth over $2M for a mere #14

    • 8000 is hardly "limited edition"

  • Love my STO GW Sammy… wear it erveryday

    Why not something like this?

    • Waiting for this one to go on sale

      Btw, this is expensive, they are often under $300

    • I just got the orange version, it's rad. Perfect size on my 16.5cm wrist.

  • Couldn't help myself

  • Exceptionally nice

  • Thanks op was about to spring for this the other day….saved another hundy.

  • That looks surprisingly easy to read for a black on black watch.

    I've got a similar Tag Heuer 'stealth' that's basically unreadable in anything less than perfect lighting and angle.

  • Now $499 :(

    • still works. you have to add the code at checkout.

  • not made it japan?

  • I'd buy one if it were quartz. Don't like watches you either have to wear or wind every night
