The flippers are going to get hosed on this one just like they did with the Timex GMT. 聽Seiko has no incentive to stop pumping these out and unlike Omega, I have full faith in their ability to do so in a timely manner.

Well, I didn鈥檛 find any in Chrono24. Not yet anyways. It鈥檚 not available in my local Seiko boutique yet. Hope it gets there soon.

Idk it feels odd for me justifying that much money on a push/pull crown, 100m watch that looks like a diver, but doesn鈥檛 have the specs of one. I still can鈥檛 believe they downgraded the SKX like that馃槄 Also at that price having hardlex and a press clasp. Probably misalignment too馃槀

I kind of agree with you. both on the reduced specs and the QC issues at Seiko, but it is still an automatic traveler's GMT for less than $500. That is a hard price to beat, even for a traveler's GMT rather than a true GMT. I am probably going to wait until I see what the Islander GMT looks like, compare it and the Seiko 5 GMT, and then I will go ahead and get the Islander GMT. 馃ぃ
