Now that Steinhart has released an under $600 A10 Soprod in the new Ocean Premium 500, it is imperative that Seiko face the music and match the speed and price of the 9015, SW200 and A10.

Have no issue with the under $100 NH35, but now we call for an under $600 Hi-Beat.

What I want: a movement with a quick-set hour hand.

When it gets to buyers of luxury watches, they tend to fly through different timezones all the time. This means resetting the watch every time.

I'd say in this day and age for a watch costing $500-$1000 or more, a quick-set hour function is just as important as quick-set date.

Yes that's available on some GMT movements. But it would be real nice to have it as a standard feature.

The beat-rate I don't care too much about as long as the thing is accurate, which the 6R15 is. I guess it would be a nice-to-have, although higher bear rate also has downsides, like less power reserve and being due for service sooner.
