Was at the Harbourfront mall last Sunday and lo and behold, one of the watch shops has the latest 6R20 Seiko Premier sitting on their shelves.
Without hesitation, I went in and tried it on but the watch didn’t impress me much. It has a massive 42mm diameter which I think is too big a dress watch for my taste. It seems to come with a proprietary leather strap that covers the entire lugs. I believe any after market strap if used would leave a huge gap in the lugs. The worksmanship on dial and case is pretty good but it has the typical Seiko Premier case design that I don’t fancy. Other than that, handwinding is smooth and setting of day and date is simple and straightforward. Watch beats at 28800 bph.
Overall, it didn’t make my heart beat faster.
