    I'd love to see them rocking a spring drive but let's be realistic, 6R15 is the best you can hope for in a 500usd watch

    Disagree. The competition is rockin' high beat 2824, SW200, 9015, STP1-11. Seiko needs to match them at $500USD level. 6r15 doesn't cut it.

    My problem is with the new hour hand. Why didn't Seiko keep the original one? I would have bought at least 2 new Samurais!

    Right, I assumed you meant Seiko hi beat 5hz movements which are exclusive to Grand Seiko.

    I bought the reissue when it came out for full retail US$550 - wish I'd waited as the price plummeted to US$350 in Singapore. It is a nice watch and no complaints, but it would be better with the original hands. The Monster hands take up too much space and do not match the fine dial markers This is obvious to me - I dont get why the Seiko designers thought these big hands would be a good idea

    I'm pretty sure if Seiko just re released the old samurais with a 6r, we'd forgive them for the price... The originals were a steal at their pre discontinued price

    Don't believe all high beat Seiko movements are exclusive to GS. Are not some 6r2x movements in regular Seiko?

    Couldn't the original hands be modded onto the new ones?

    When you get around to it, please contact me. I've been looking to get the blue lagoon for awhile, but they're hard to find on the grey market and I don't have a Seiko AD near me (as far as I know).

    Thanks!
