Default Seiko SPB107 Limited Edition

Did a forum search and saw no mention of it so here you go.

This watch caused me to break my "no pre-order" vow.

man, that is a black beauty, i don't have a spare g these
days either, i wish i did.

does anyone know the lug-to-lug length on this case? in
all these reviews i just read, not one effing mention of
this dimension, just the 44mm width and the 13 mm
thickness, as if l-to-l were not the most important
dimension. anyway, i'm assuming it's 51mm, which is
over the limit i've set of 50mm, especially because my
sweet spot is really around 45mm, l-to-l....

Peter it's a black version of the SBDC063/SPB079. Topper has a lot of Limited Editions from various watch manufacturers, just another reason I wish I lived in California I'd be swinging in all the time just to take a look.


The lug-to-lug on this model is 50mm. I just measured my SBDC063

Very nice, but as others have said, I can’t put out a grand for one watch these days. I top out at about half that. Realistically, I try to stay between 300 and 400 for brand new pieces. The beauty of Seiko is that there are a lot to choose from at my price point.

With the word “Limited” Seiko knows some people will pay the extra 100% price marked up. This watch is probably cost $450-550 range without the word “limited”.

Not really. These 6R15 caliber SBDC " 1968 reissue" models go for about that much for suggested list price. Granted most people get their SBDCs closer to $700 on rubber and $800 on a bracelet. Since Topper won't be discounting (???) not much price premium.

Love mine:

Topper AD Limited Edition made just for them with their specific design changes to second hand, black coating (whatever you want to call it), black date wheel, and only 500 pieces.

Definitely not looking to re-sale mine, but I'm confident it will hold it's value, especially considering people are paying well over $1000 for the Blue Alpinist that was released with almost 2000 pieces....... without a bracelet I might add.

Pure beauty. If it wears half as good as it looks it would still be awesome.

I never had a Black Watch. I have been on the fence about this offer. I like this look Mucho. With all the watches that never make it to my wrist, I feel a bit tight and guilty about Buying this one?
Just Love the look hope you bring it home and post many pics.
By that time there will not be any left and I can just enjoy looking.
Bring her home.

Thanks! I should have already had several PVD Natos ordered to wear with it but procrastinated.
