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)...

Currently put a black strap but have a brown and burgundy on order...

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 no... 

is that SBGR261? beautiful!

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 Cazalea ...  

LOL 😆

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 severa... 

Gorgeous GS

Hi 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 Cheers JML

Congratulations! [nt]

I am biased lol. Mine says Hi Cheers Robin ...  

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

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
