I've noticed that there doesn't seem to a lot of love for the Seiko Helmet watches. Both here and at TOF, I don't ever recall seeing lots of pics or praise for this particular model. They do have a bit of a funky design but there are collectors who like some of the unique funky designs.

I would like one again. I had one before but sold it because I didn't know Spencer and Jonathan yet. I think that one of the main issues with them is finding a piece with a decent case. Many I've seen have pitted cases, most of which are hidden underneath the caseback. Unless the seller gives you a photo with the caseback off, showing the movement, I would be wary.
It's all a matter of taste/preference. I'm not a fan of the design myself, but if I were, Hobbes' image here might have turned me off. laugh1.gif
"Even if there are moments during the day when all seems normal and when every action of your own and of those around you seems to be unremarkable, the appearance of ordinariness is an illusion, and just below the placid surface, the world is seething." -- Dean Koontz, DEEPLY ODD
From a personal taste standpoint, I actually like the case design. I'm actually looking for a clean specimen to add in my collection although my preference is towards the larger 6138-0020 "Tokei Zara" JDM speed timer which shares the same aesthetic helmet architecture as the smaller 6139-700x series
