Good news! I am hoping they will increase the size a bit as the 38mm was just a bit too small for me. POSTED BY SEIYA KOBAYASHI · SEPTEMBER 06, 2019 It has been newly fitted with 6R35 movement. The power reserve has been upgraded to 70hr. *(The 6R15 movement had a 50hr power reserve.) It will keep the 20 ATM water resistance but will come with a see-through back. The green dial will remain pretty much the same. It was announced that a black and white contrasting dial will be offered as well.
