    I was thinking you were talking about "hi beat" - 36000bpm/5hz family of movements used in GS's only. 6r2X movements are indeed high beat but not "hi beat".

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    Very interested in these. Wonder where pricing is going to "settle" on these. Was really hoping these might show up in department stores here (Kohls, JCPenney, etc.) however I am thinking that will not be the case. With Seiko's record of QC I would really prefer to buy from somewhere with easy return/ replacement if I get a dud. Took me 3 tries to get a passable SRP777 from Kohls. Fortunately they are more then easy to deal with. The BL Samurai I ordered (for a great price) from an U.S. based GM dealer arrived with a scratch on the dial and a dented bezel. Of course that retailer had none left and the prices went way too high for my taste everwhere around that time. Fortunately they covered return shipping.

    Nice watch, one of my favorite Seiko style divers. But at 50mm I believe it's too big. And the hands are meh. It's over priced for the movement, but the market will correct that for Seiko over time. Who knows, maybe the new hands will be a hit.


    Comparing the old Samurai to the new one reveals the significant facelift that took place, more in line with other models of the Prospex line.

    What's the 50mm you're referring to? Is it the old Samurai?

    The Blue Lagoon is 43.5mm with a 48mm lug-to-lug...
    Which watch company would you buy if you had $178 BILLION?

    Case length. I recall the new one being 50mm; perhaps the old one was 48mm. Seiko seems to be up-sizing re-issues.
