They really are going all out on Spring Drive on the 20th anniversary of its commercialisation.

Didn't we already have another drawn out thread about this being too expensive and not as good as the original etc etc? Can we move on now?

It would surely benefit from an original NOS sweep seconds hand faded to a lovely salmon pink color. I guess they don't have a problem pricing it out of reach of the general buying public. It must be meant for the more affluent collector with deeper pockets and a space already cleared next to their other safe queens. She is a looker though !

It doesn't mentioned about the lug size and whether the crown is screw in or the original lock though the picture is lock crown.

It says screw down crown on the site, Leong. But lug size isn't it 20mm?

Thanks Guy. Yes its screw down crown from the website. Seiko just maintain the cosmetic appearance of " Lock" crown.

Lug size? Hmmmm.

Where the reviewer uses this photo to compare...



I won't bother stating the obvious here...


Anyway a couple of pictures on that link that do show it in a better light, if I'm honest. But still a lot not right about it imo.
What a stunning comparison shots!!

I agree on the original 6105, but on the reissue I appreciate the lug holes.

I think they still see a market for the old remakes since getting the old ones is not easy - after all it was sold mainly in Japan for many years. For the rest of the world, it is new.
The same can be said of Rolex - same old models, year after year.

The SLA033 is absolutely stunning in the steel. I waited for mine to arrive all the while recognizing the difference between hype/press-photo and 'real' thing and was not disappointed!

Update: Rolex has rolled out a lot of new models.

See photos below. It is nearly impossible to take a wrist shot where it seems to be aligned, but straight down you can see it is spot-on perfect.

Maybe the double dome AR sapphire crystal makes for this phenomenon?

Mine couldn't look any more perfectly aligned. It is Rolexian in detail, everything I see is perfect.

I wonder if Larry's 6105 president endlink fits this SLA033? If not he should modify a bit to fit and there is a bigger crowd
