    it's a metal Seiko. It'll at least hold it's value.

    Surprised the pre order window for this is so long, especially for a limited run of only 300 units being made...did they say when this would ship, it's not like this is a kick starter funding type item right?

    Glad I'm not the only waiting for this...you would think this would be sold out already considering 300 pieces....

    You mean that Seiko Optimus/Nemesis that came out a few years back?

    Definitely in stand mode, but prob not cleanly in robot mode with the chrono buttons. This Breitling's 48mm face.

    Just paid for shipping from that World Shipping service. Guess I'll have the watch in about 2 weeks!

    Same here. Was getting worried since it said the 14th was the due date.
    Curious what the lug width is (either 22mm or 20mm) as I'm definitely replacing that pleather strap.

    Oooh, is it not actual leather? I'm a vegan and was planning on replacing the stock one because I thought it was real.

    Might be, but for a ~$350 watch, I wouldn't bet on it. Either was, I usually just store leather straps and replace with rubber (more comfortable). Seiko metal bracelets aren't that expensive (around $120) so might get that

    I trust your watch expertise more than mine. When you get yours and figure it out, can you let me know?

    Got mine today. 183/300

    Band is pleather and pretty cheap. Signs of wear after one use. But whatever. Lugs are 20mm and I'll replace the strap as planned. Not bad for the price. Chrono works ok

    I got mine in last night, 171, tight strap which was expected, gotta find a place to replace the strap. Still not sure how to transform it though.

    I showed it to a coworker who knows more about watches and he said its battery powered.
