All in all, probably a bit of a risky buy, so I'm going to pass.
That was my thought process too. Looks like they're getting sent out quite a lot quicker than the ST1 so there's probably a bit less fanfare/excitement as they're popping up regularly.

Personally I think it's a brilliant looking watch, which without the Ultraman link and the LE price tag would be an incredibly successful model.
Yes without the Ultraman connection the box would undoubtedly be nicer also.

^^^ I agree. I think the Ultraman link does nothing to enhance what is otherwise a very nice watch.

I've thought about getting one of these in the past. It's a recurring dream.

You've got the regular, non GMT, version. Haven't you?

Trusting so, a most equitable trade up.

Yes, I have. It would be a good trade up, for sure.

Not sure of which dial colour I'd go for though: cream, black or blue.

They are all fantastic dial colours (that picture doesn't do justice to the 'Breitling Blue' dial I don't think). Go with whichever fits in with the rest of your collection. They all look good

I intended to post a picture of this red Grand Seiko myself yesterday - the Urushi lacquer dial is simply stunning.
This will sound strange but when I went looking for the price I was delighted to know that it was so expensive that I could stop thinking about what I could sell it’s more than whole lot !

Thinking of adding one of these this year, in 36 mm

Oooh - I didn't realise an in-house movement is on the cards for this watch! That'll be v tempting indeed.

Nothing confirmed yet but it is the only black bay left with the ETA movement. So in house could be on the cards
