That was to be expected with the NH34, but these MIYOYA 9075 were in the works before the SEIKO news came out. I think the game changer is having other alternative movements to use beside ETA and SELLITA. The same thing happened when the MIYOTA 9000 series hit the market.
I mentioned earlier jumping the gun too soon to be the first one to buy may be costly. As these make their way into production and there are more models to choose from the prices will be closer together and more stable. Some right now could be price gouging with the first releases. Still, even the higher priced models are better prepositions compared to the new SEIKO GMT offering with Hardlex , so-so bracelets and bezel inserts made of Hardlex instead of ceramic or sapphire.
