    Thumbs Up New Miyota 28,800BPH caliber automatic movements...:)

    Well I just went to check something on the Miyota site, and just stumbled

    across this. There will be more 28,800BPH movements in the 9000 series of movement.

    I'm curious about the reason behind the absent of hack/stop-second feature (as far as I can tell)?

    It's just like the 82xx after so many decades why didn't they put a hacking lever in them

    It is also a direct drive center second design, so no chance of a stuttering second hand.

    Not positive but these may have been out already in Japan. I think I have seen them before.

    There have been a couple of threads on this movement series in the Seiko Citizen forum. The movement doesn't seem to break any new ground but the case and dial designs are attractive.

    The three hand model sans visible balance could be interesting if priced below $500.00

    Probably considerably less tha an ETA...

    As to not breaking any new horological ground.... I don't think the intent of the lastest crop of movements (SW200, This one, TAG's new chronograph, even the CL888) are intented to break horological frontiers in mechanical movements.

    I think these movements have been introduced because there are peopel in the market for a cheaper alternative to ETAs. The price of a plain 2824-2 ETA movement, has almost doubled over the last three years.
