Added this Grand Seiko to my collection!

Dont think this model generates lots of buzz in general but for me the richness of the dial giving it a vintage feel is simply amazing!  Feels like i am wearing a watch from my Grand-Father which is a feeling i like!

This model is not a spring drive but the basic GS automatic movement adjusted to six position, and yet I am blown away by its rate accuracy.  It is still within one second after a week!  Just ordered a new custom straps to give it a more vintage feel (will receive it in about 4 weeks)...

It is a beauty, Yacomino!

This watch is nothing to sneeze at!

Had it on my wrist two years ago and ultimately decided against it. Should have pounced. I said at the time, and have many times since, that it reminded me of a watch my father might have worn. So I hears 'ya. It's simply a beauty. And with that slight nod to the modern with the blued seconds hand… Terrific. Big congrats!  Wear it in good health!      FH

Thanks for your kind word [nt]

I don’t own any GS but am tempted to take the plunge. Just need to find out how.

Simple - send money, someone will send a GS

Or a dealer might offer you a wider choice ...

or maybe not

It’s an attractive looking bunch. One could claim that they appear quite similar at first glance but the importance is obviously in the differences or the details. I need to study them more. That vintage piece looking piece has appeared on my radar several times.
Great pictures, Mike. Thanks! Christian

Beautiful Grand Seiko, enjoy this beauty. [nt]

Gorgeous GS

 By: jml_watches : July 10th, 2019-14:19

Great watch - it's the GS that I'm most tempted by. Think it looks fab - really like the hands on it.

Enjoy wearing it



Congratulations! [nt]

I am biased lol.
Mine says Hi wink


Nice! I see you wear it with the GS strap...

 By: yacomino : July 11th, 2019-14:50
I love the colour of the strap which I am trying to match with aftermarket ones because I find the stock 16mm too narrow at the buckle. So ordering 19mm / 18mm instead
