Is it "redcraft" or "recraft" and if so what does that mean

Hi Steve

it is Recraft (as in "re-crafted")

unfortunately Seiko re-directs this link to your local region which may not have this range... you will see the original page briefly before the redirect

https://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SNKM97-.../dp/B00M0YKOWI

Ps. That was my first choice.. but then I changed my mind... I think I have just changed my mind again, so maybe I'll get that as well!

A steal on Amazon

For the green recraft. It says limited time offer. A lot less than I paid.

I paid US$160... but now only US$100 on Amazon.

Such great value for a nice (retro-looking) Seiko dress watch

Thanks I got the last one for $100. Hopefully it makes it down here okay? a few Amazon reviews have mentioned that they turned up damaged in dodgy packaging.
