Those are a nice size. The rest are 46-47.
I can’t decide which color I like better.
Expensive for the movement?

That might be the first Tuna(ish) variant I could see myself wearing. 43 X 13 X 44mm is a pretty wearable size and the 4R movement I had in my old NAFT was accurate enough.

Retail looks to be about $650. I'll consider this when they get down to about current NAFT pricing.

12.7 mm thickness is what caught my eye.

The new Arnie variants are more intriguing than the Tuna cans

Really liking these Matt ! :) Seriously, between the nice combinations,
the size differences, movements, and dial set-ups, there is something
for everyone ! :salute: The designs are similar, but also just different enough
to separate themselves from past versions. All while catching the eye,
or attracting all of us. Very cool sir ! ..Thanks so so much for the news !!!

I really like the gray one and could see adding one once the price settles in.

If I recall the only hands that would be interchangable between the solar and automatic is the second hand only.

It's funny, in M@'s post about his new Transocean, one of the first things I checked was whether or not the chapter ring was aligned (it was).

Damn you Seiko for being know for misaligned chapter rings! :tap:

The good stuff seems typically JDM. I guess that applies to work quality as well.

I know, but now it's the first thing I look at, no matter which Seiko. Which is why I'm mad at Seiko, this isn't what I want the first thing to be when I think Seiko. It seems like such a simple thing :raised:
