Review - Grand Seiko Spring Drive Chronograph GMT SBGC221

by Angus Davies "The Japanese have a rich history of artisanal crafts dating back hundreds of years. Samurai swords and silk kimonos are just two examples of this nation’s prowess for craftsmanship. The new Grand Seiko Spring Drive Chronograph GMT SBGC221 also harnesses much artisanal skill.

Last year, Grand Seiko unveiled both GMT and Chronograph GMT models, delivered in high-intensity titanium and zirconia ceramic. This year the Japanese brand has unveiled three new Chronograph GMT models, all of which feature ‘hybrid titanium-ceramic bracelet construction’."

Very nice, but I'd opt for a Daytona. The reason? A Grand Seiko is unlikely to get your dick sucked.

Not a fan of the borders on the subdials of the Daytona. This is a much cleaner look.

Would still like power reserve moved to case back but once again GS takes another material, ceramic, and does their magic. Prices keep climbing but the AD always has a waiting list for more than they can handle
