    Awesome photos, a great looking watch, sweet dial and yes it does look very well made, especially for money you pay for them

    Awsomw pics and awesome watch.

    I think JDM Seiko Brightz models are probably the best bang for the buck out there. You are getting top-notch quality like in a Grand Seiko at less than half of the price.

    Man, I could not agree more. I would certainly put this watch, quality wise, right next to my PO. For sure the movement is not nearly as refined or compared to a GS but about every other detail looks to be hand crafted and quality assured. The fit and finish of the watch is just perfect. On my wrist for just a few days and I've had 3 comments on it. Just really loving the watch and the price I paid. Problem now though is I'm looking at about (4) more Seikos at this price and quality point. Ugh.

    Just back from Vegas where I took 3 watches, this 003 a PO 8500 and a Longines Master Collection retrograde. Have to say this watch made it to my wrist more than the other two combined. Every day I wear it it seems to get better. I have to say I'm constantly polishing it though.

    @gaczr7s incredible finish on that Seiko, stunning pictures, congratulations! Curious as to how much it cost.

    Looks like it has the ugraded 6R15c movement which apparently solved some long term stability issues encountered in the preivous versions.

    Yes, it has the 6R15C movement.

    I just recieved this amazing timepiece from seiyajapan and it looks just amazing but I do have a question. Is the crown a screw-down crown because no matter how much pushing and twisting I do it's still in the winding position. Is this normal?

    Tal, this is not normal. The watch does not have a screw down crown.

    Doh! Sorry Tal, just reread your post. I misunderstood.... It should be In the winding position closest to the case. There are three positions.. Closest to the case is winding, one pull out is date setting, and all the way out is time setting. Sounds like the watch is fine.
