the Seastar has so much going for it. ceramic bezel, 300m wr, free sprung balance wheel, silicon hairspring. It's basically my perfect watch at that price point. I recently visited a watchmaker and asked his opinion on the powermatic 80 movement within. He was not optimistic about the long term durability of it. I was told that there is some nylon component in the movement and that the tweaks made to achieve an 80hr power reserve in turn undermine the long term durability of the movement. Those with experience and knowledge about this movement please chime in. I still want to get the new seastar!
