Thoughts about what?

It is gorgeously executed. But somehow did not fit into my collection.

Placement of the screws and jewels is a mess, I wish they had tried harder to do something artistically meaningful with that too.

According to Seiko, the placement is very deliberate

Sorry you had this experience . I own five GS and an Eichi II . They are wonderful watches and are well regarded by watch enthusiast and professional reviewers . The level of finishing on the Eichi II is superb on any level . One can quibble with design b...

Very well made and finished. Not as many flaws as compared to my other Swiss high ends.
