The arrow hands sure didn't last.

At least Seiko learned its lesson for once... Now if we can just get them to downsize more offerings. The new 6r35 6105 is a start.

I dislike that small plot to the right of the day/date, and not digging the black day/date wheel. SBBN015/007 is where it's at.

That is a cool Chrono. Sure it channels the Daytona, but so what?

Absolutely. When I see registers at 6,9,12 like this it reminds me of the early Tudor chronographs.

If I weren't trying to position myself for the upcoming SPB151J1 I might bite.

Looks like around $1200. I’d buy this one, even though I swore I was “done”.

I'm not following Seiko very closely, but I like the looks of this one. What's the deal with the 6R35? I've heard people on here bitch about previous 6RXX movements.

I'm confused about the hands. Is the seconds hand painted gold to match the dial text (as per T+T link)?

This is such a classic Seiko design for them to build upon in regular production. I hope the 6R movement issues are resolved with this generation.

Sounds like they are not. I copied and pasted this from a WUS post.



"6R35 should be the same as 6R15 apart from power reserve?

I seemed to have gotten a mixed bag;

1st watch, gets a misaligned chapter ring but gets a +7.2 Avg s/d movement.

2nd watch gets a perfect aligned chapter ring but gets a +13.5 Avg s/d movement. This got a +16.9 s/d on one measurement dial down so that's out of spec but next day got a +12 same dial down.

3rd watch gets a perfect aligned chapter ring but gets a -10 to -3.6 Avg s/d Avg s/d movement. This watch is negative in all but maybe 2 positions and thats why it dropped to -3.6 Avg but have seen it get as bad a -12.8 s/d.

These are taken with WatchCheck app in all 6 positions so can be out a bit but gives a solid idea of the variability of these watch movements."

Talking about dressy diver...this is a watch you can pull out with everything Image
Probably wears smaller as 40mm diver

Aussie dollar is in the toilet right now.

I really like that oyster.

Jacob, the 6R15s has a plethora of topics surrounding time keeping and amplitude. It’s a crap shoot. Hopefully the 6R35 addresses this but there’s not much forum data on the newer movement yet.

This was from the Sumo thread and he posted that along with a picture of the Ninja Sumo, so I'll assume he was referring to those.

Not the best sign. For awhile I was going on the assumption that it was just those speaking up with problems. This changes things.

I guess the question is can they be easily regulated?

If the 6r35 is anything like the 6r15 in that regard, the percentage of it staying is low.

By that I mean it will eventually drift back to where it was. I've only had two regulated, and that was my experience. I've read others have had better luck. I'm just done with that movement.
