Grand Seiko Elegance Collection

Post by koimaster » March 12th 2019, 11:05am

One of the few quibbles Grand Seiko fans in particular, and watch enthusiasts in general, have with Grand Seiko watches is the relative thickness of the watches. To some degree, this is a consequence of Grand Seiko's decision to go with quite robust construction for their movements, but the desire for Grand Seiko quality and value in a more slim watch had in general remained unsatisfied, until the recent introduction of four new watches in the Elegance collection, which use a newly introduced hand-wound caliber. The new movement is the caliber 9S63, which is configured with a power reserve at 3:00 and a sub-seconds dial at 9:00. This yields wristwatches with a 39mm diameter and a height of 11.6mm, versus a bit over 13mm for a typical Grand Seiko time-and-date automatic.

Gorgeous, all four of them. GS is just stellar.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
