GS knows how to make good dials for sure

Sheer perfection

Very convincing, very dapper.

I was unaware of this reference... From the crown, I would guess it is a manual-wound, which makes it very desirable: please let us know more, and a picture of the (transparent?) back would be great. Superb choice, Seiko keeps their creative energy at hig... 

Thanks Vinnie

This is SBGW255 with a manual wind. Same watch as SBgW231. The only difference is the dial.

Your shot was so compelling that... I took the plunge

The wait is starting now for my first Grand Seiko. Are all the pieces already produced? Did you have it delivered directly? Thanks for leading me towards this direction, I am looking forward to seeing it in the metal

Great you like it

 By: mj23 : November 28th, 2019-08:00
Were you able to secure one from an AD? Yes I believe all have been produced and I got mine directly from an AD.

It was booked on Citychain by a local friend

 By: VinnieD : November 29th, 2019-00:14
Deposit was 50%. It looks like I got the last one The wait from the other side of the world has just started. I have no clue when I will get it

Congrats!! Now it’s just the waiting game. 😁

 By: mj23 : November 29th, 2019-07:19
Is that AD in Hong Kong?

I believe so

 By: VinnieD : November 29th, 2019-07:23
But I have no clue as I have never been there. I am trusting my local contact so far... happy to have secured their last one!

Show us the photos once you get it!

This is SBGW255 that was just recently released in Southeast Asia.

Yes. Love the clean dial

 By: mj23 : November 24th, 2019-16:08
Hope GS will make more of this style

Thanks my friend

 By: mj23 : November 24th, 2019-18:06
I think I am the one who lost the count of yours. πŸ˜†

Very nice watch.

 By: jlux : November 25th, 2019-01:07
I never saw this one before. The strap works very well with the green dial.

Thanks jlux! [nt]

Here is another one

 By: VinnieD : November 29th, 2019-04:07
Which shows the dial appearing much more blue than green image credit: someone on reddit ...  

Could you share the lug width?

 By: VinnieD : November 29th, 2019-09:28
I assume 19mm Thanks

Yes it’s 19mm [nt]

Given the unusual shade of the dial, I will need to find a creative strap to go with it. The light grey/beige could be interesting or something between blue and green

20mm works too if it’s soft.

 By: mj23 : November 29th, 2019-13:16
The one in my photo is 20mm

I came across it last night by chance

 By: sham1 : November 29th, 2019-19:09
Not bad but with only 150 pieces available, that is pretty low for Grand Seiko and they should sell out soon. Excellent value for money though as it is priced only slightly higher than the SBGW231. A manual winding Grand Seiko in 37.3mm at an excellent pr... 

He! He!
