A New Blue Dial in the House: Grand Seiko SBGJ225 "Kasuri"

I have had about 20 all together. These are the ones I like most, and I have kept. Spring Drive - the Snowflake SBGA011 or SBGA211 Hand Wind - classic style SBGW033 or SBGW253 Automatic - might be redundant with the Hi-Beat GMT but this is the epitome of
