While it’s certainly encouraging to have an official statement from Bonhams, and indeed to see that some version of their Seiko-themed sale will still take place, the balance of this story is obviously riding on how the re-up of this sale actually looks and if the updated listings will directly address the concerns raised by the Seiko enthusiast community. 

More as soon as we have it. 

Update as of 13/08/2020: The “Making Waves” auction has returned to Bonhams’ website with updated condition reports for each lot. The condition reports are available as a PDF download to any user with a login.
