Icon3 The SLA017 * SLA025 * SLA033 club thread

I couldn't really find an "owner" thread for either of the three so I thought why not start one up for any of the three, given that these are indeed a special series from Seiko.

So if you have one or more of these awesome "re-creations", please do share

SLA017 (SBDX019) / SLA025 (SBEX007) / SLA033 (SBDX031)

Related Seiko links:
History of Divers Watches
SLA017
SLA025
SLA033 - 1970 re-creaction


~~~~~~~~


I have the fortune of having all three so Ill start the the thread with a pic of the trio

Good thought. I just picked up my SLA033 and could not be pleased with it.

I've got the SLA017 and SLA033.

The 017 is so far my favourite, but I have not really had enough time with the 033. Both look cool but you know I can wear an SKX007 all week and not feel like I need to change to another watch.

I had an SLA017 before but sold it as I had a frustrating experience with the watch....was super inaccurate and the seiko service center was rubbish. The sla033 seems to be doing well so far, and I'm tempted by my friends sla025...

Dial/bezel color of the 25, case shape of the 33, size of the 17.

The paracord looks cool

But for those that don't need/ want/ or can't afford a "stack", remember that you only need one for the wrist

Speaking of which, TGIF everyone

I’ve got the 025 currently with the 017 on its way!...so stoked to get it! I’ll have to wait on the 033 for a bit, but I’m slowly getting my complete set.
