As one would imagine, that information is

Of course, no matter what the products are - from Porsches, Rolexes,
Pateks, to Mizuno - every distributor has it's own pet dealer.
Getting the premium stock first or simply getting the special,

sealed over decades of mutually beneficial transactions.
When the latest SLA047J 140th Anniversary SEIKO arrived yesterday, we were truly excited. This limited edition watch comes with strict 'one per dealer only' policy. And our example was number 0001. Actually, the full number is 0N0001 meaning this was the first watch to leave the Japanese assembly line in November 2020.
Is SEIKO testing our loyalty or are they simply teasing us? Was this
intentional or simply a random 'act of kindness'? Or even a mistake?
In any case, WE'VE GOT IT - the very special ichiban - the numero uno. And if you're quick, it could be yours.
SLA047J is the crown jewel of 140th “Iriomote Island” trilogy. All three
watches feature the green dial inspired by the dense verdant forest on
Japan’s Iriomote Island– one of the world’s best places for diving.
Subtropical primeval forests cover most of the island, enriching the
surrounding waters, nourishing the coral reefs, said to be among the
world’s biggest and most diverse.
SLA047J is a divers watch for saturation diving, featuring sapphire crystal glass and zirconia ceramic bezel. Price: $4,995
