Do you buy new Seikos? What's a model they could release in 2020 that you'd purchase? Where the gap in their catalog that would fill a slot in your watch box?

For me, it's a 40mm Grand Seiko Spring Drive dive watch. I love the SBGA229, but at 44.2mm, its too big! I'd love to see it in 40mm. Same with the GS chronographs. Why so big?!?!

Brad Sir Any Reissues will do but without an “X” on the Dial😜

Apart from that a revamp and Reissue of the Old LCD Digital Range would be nice.👍

The overdue 6139 series - more than just a Pogue - maybe 3 or more variants.


Even with a quartz insides.
I think everyone wants that... except I kind of don't because I think they'll price it >$2,000. Out of range of most of us is almost worse than not having it IMO. Now if they commit to the R&D for a new affordable automatic chronograph movement, that would be something. Or as you said, quartz. Would they do that?

I wish Seiko would release there Odd trendy wacky colored ideas and get back to there beginnings.
Am I crazy thinking odd, trendy, wacky and colored has been part of their DNA since nearly the beginning? From the Pogue to the recent Godzilla, I think it's very Seiko. I guess the professional divers have mostly been somber affairs, but there were always colorful rally divers alongside them. In general, trendy and colorful seems very Seiko to me 😀

Well how about this
New ideas and not old rehashes that don't live up to the originals
Seiko was the innovator not the follower
That is what I hope to see going forward
God Bless and happy New Year everyone ...this is going to be a great year i just know it ....John

Look at Seiko watches from 1881 until 1980...;)

Yes my thoughts exactly. Use a quartz movement, keep the price low, and offer a variety of models that are true to the original 6139 line-up.

The 7T94 quartz ticks off center seconds in 1/5 of a second intervals. Makes it look like a mechanical in action

Something with a Spring Drive movement for under $1000 (heck, under $2000) and under 40mm would be awesome

Agree with Dahasco, I love the old Vanacs and Actus's with mad dial finishes and faceted crystals.
We need the eccentric side of Seiko back.

Or even with one of their excellent meca-quartz movements, like a VK6X-series? Same sweeping action but with snap-back resetting....
