    I am confused. What is a chronograph without the chronograph parts? Believe it or not, in the original, the bezel was supposed to act as the minute totaliser for the chrono... so, if they are removing the chrono parts, why not remove the bezel too.

    Nice watches but they would have looked better as chronostops.

    I've never got in to the Presage range but these look quite good.

    Why is Seiko so scared of producing anything less than 41mm? The original was 38mm, why make this 41.5mm?

    I was quite liking it, but it will wear like a plate.

    I
    100% agree. Itís a LE so thereís not going be tens of thousands knocking around. 2,000 pieces of each variation in the original 38mm would surely have sold out to enthusiasts?

    Ä830 on a few euro websites. Think it will wear smaller than the size. Really interested to see the black in real life.

    I'm in Osaka for the week, they had one at Yodobashi in Umeda, it's quite nice looking in the flesh

    All three look great, if only they were 40mm or below...that would be the icing on the cake.

    Surety these manufacturers know this!

    Just ordered the green from Seiya. Surprisingly inexpensive- I reckon less than £700 after UK VAT

    Any one know if there are any wrist shots of the watch circulating yet?

    Try Instagram. For example:

    understand that are made for different markets, anyone know what the other differences are between the SARX and SPB version for each of the three colour variants?

    thanks.

    Really undecided now if to go for the black or silver dialled model. Maybe the answer is to get both!
