A LOOK INSIDE GRAND SEIKO’S 9S

Post by koimaster » February 16th 2020, 1:39am

High-beat movements, or calibers that run at 36,000 beats-per-hour/10 beats-per-second, are relatively uncommon in the industry today. The prevailing standard for quite some time now has been 28,800 beats-per-hour, or 8 beats-per-second, and it’s for good reason. These movements strike an excellent compromise as far as overall performance is concerned, with 28,800bph calibers being capable of excellent timekeeping without undue wear and tear on components.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

A Grand Seiko will always be on my wish list.

And they are actually affordable for mere mortals like myself.
Yep - and the one I covet has the 9F quartz, likely the best quartz movement ever devised.
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
