Saw a picture of this new Seiko diver on SCWF the other day. From what I heard, it will be released within the next few days. The distributor already have them in the warehouse but they are just waiting for the pouches to be delivered.
From the last few releases, I get the impression that they are making their divers more and more complicated. What happened to the old school design like the 6309? I don’t know….. probably their market research indicates that the new generation of Seiko fans like complex design like this one. However, there are still a bunch of guys out there who prefer the classic diver design and Seiko should really take care of their needs.
