Finally! And they'll only be available next year in March? Also no Ti model?
They certainly look cool, but I'll wait for the 2nd generation models in 2012 or so.
A few things I would expect on a $1000 watch in 2011:
- Ti case, case back, bracelet, surface treated or DLC.
- Sapphire crystal with inner and outer AR coatings.
- At least 10ATM WR, preferably 20ATM.
Apart from the dot-matrix display, I had all these in my 2007 Attesa.
Seiko got one thing wrong with this 1st gen: the EPD dial has to be combined with a very thin, light, and hopefully curved, watch. Seiko ended up with a 9.5mm thick, flat watch and Casio already has some models that feature this kind of thickness (their Oceanus Manta line) with a very nice 3D multi-layer dial. One of the main advantages of EPD is completely wasted here.
