The watches run on Seiko’s caliber 6R64, a GMT movement with local jumping hour capability, a date display via a 6:00 subdial, and a power reserve indicator at 9:00. Combined with the sharp geometric pattern, the additional dial information on these watches results in a display that’s somewhat busy, but not in a way that’s overbearing. All functions are immediately legible (and useful) and appear to be executed quite well, even if some might object to power reserve breaking up the dial’s symmetry.
Something that sets these watches apart from the Landmasters that previously housed this movement is their wearability. The case measures 42mm in diameter and is 13.7mm thick, which is not small by any means, but Seiko has a way of building cases in such a way that their thickness is hidden by the facets along the caseband. These watches also come on a bracelet that has been engineered specifically for the Sharp Edge product line, and is noticeably sleeker than the bracelet you’d find a typical Seiko dive watch, for example.
The Sharp Edge GMTs will be available in June, with a retail price of $1,400.
