    Thank you, another amazing dial, love the texture. Wonderfully restrained branding for the LE on the reverse too.

    A final photo of this 1967 GS self-dater, before I let it go. A black re-dial, so not quite as Seiko made it, but they really should have! I guess they figured that out a few decades later in time...

    Agreed, Top Boy was good and turned into a bit of a binge watch. We had to watch it with subtitles though!

    This is unscientific, but a friend had a palladium wedding ring made and incredibly quickly it went from shiny to dull and scratched. I think at the time he had a fairly active job and would have...

    True, a 'sweep second hand' is often incorrectly thought to describe the smooth-ish motion of an automatic, but actually describes the central position and was originally exotic enough to count as a...

    I have to admit that this one has won me over. Not in the sense of wanting one, but the specs and price are excellent and there’s a gap in the market for it. It’s a bit of a homage and certainly...

    Agreed, it's a fairly generic style which is why small details make all the difference. In fact I've argued here that to me it looks very different indeed. And yet... you can see what they're...

    You're right, change the dial, the date window, the name, the batons, the hands, the bezel, case, lugs, bracelet and polished centre links, and it could almost be the same watch! ;-)

    Autumnal Grand Seiko - AND new elegance dials
