REVIEW: Grand Seiko GMT

Postby koimaster » August 12th 2017, 1:05pm

Dating back to 1881, Seiko is Japan’s oldest watchmaker. Grand Seiko, which was founded in 1960, is the company’s high-end watch line. There is even a higher line called Credor, but those pieces are significantly pricier and very rare.

Grand Seiko is amongst a very elite group of mechanical watch manufactures (including Rolex) that can produce an entire mechanical timepiece – meaning the case, hands, dial, movement, fully in-house – from start to finish.

And like the aforementioned brand, Grand Seiko is able to use their absolute control over production, as well as their watchmaking know-how, which dates back to the late 19th century, to produce superb timepieces. Every detail of a Grand Seiko exudes high-quality craftsmanship.

Killer Seiko - great look.

Just a little too much $$ for me to justify.

Lots of different tastes out there to make watches for and given GS sales they strike a lot of fancies, but this one's not for me.

I like the one in tik's pic.
