Before I go further, let’s start with a mini lesson: the words font and typeface are not synonymous. A typeface is a family of fonts (ie Times New Roman, Helvetica, and the beloved Comic Sans) whereas a font is more specific, taking on extra details such as the weight, size and style (italics, bold, etc).
Most people don’t know about this distinction because, quite frankly, most people don’t care about typefaces. And yet they should: after all, the text on your dial is one of the most obvious parts of a watch."

The Author does not care for the Gothic font used by Grand Seiko.
I do not care for watch brands that omit vowels from their name, sometimes to the point I think one company doesn't know how to write Roman numbers correctly.
I'm also not a fan of too much writing on the dial. Put that marketing manure on the back, or just omit it altogether. Like that Tudor Pelagos.
