So the 8L35 that rocks at 8 bps = 28,800 beats per hour as used in the MM300s and most of the SBDX / SLA family is a well known caliber that provides super accurate daily performance.

Last night I was regulating a vintage watch while wearing an SLA025 that has the 8L55 HiBeat 36000 bph movement. So using a 53 degree lift angle as a guess (affects amplitude reading but not the spd) I tossed it on the TimeGrapher:
Watch Analog watch Gadget Gauge Clock


Pretty satisfied !

Of all the reissues the SLA025 is a clear favorite of mine :) You are very fortunate to own one. Dial, hands, bezel, case, movement are just exquisite. I have been wanting to get one for a long time. Are they still available or are they all gone. IIRC the edition size was 1500? Also if you don't mind how is the price on these? Are they turnining up discounted on the secondhand market?

More photos please :)
I did get mine on the used market and got a good price. Yes limited run of 1,500 pcs. Very faithful especially the dial to the 6159.

Not sure if any are left in any AD display cases but I do know the Seiko Boutiques (before the move to only Grand Seiko) had a few here and there a year after their debut. A $5,400 price plus tax will do that.
