NWA: GS SBGA231 diver

Post by iwasbanned » January 15th 2023, 4:50pm

This is a looker. I like it much more than the steel version. The touch of gold on the dial pops. And of course being titanium it is lighter. Still one of the worst clasps ever, but the bracelet does feel better on this than the steel version. Of course the spring drive is smooth. My wife saw it and said "wow that's nice, that's a keeper".

Those are awesome, never had the pleasure of owning one (yet)

And yeah the bit of gold on this one is extremely attractive

Seiko does the titanium divers so well. The shogun is in a different category of comfort then typical steel diver imo

But it’s remained a minoritarian thing.

Those are totally classic

This is a case where the new logo GS model looks markedly nicer than the old logo version.

That really looks tight and better composed than this

I was on the fence about buying one of these in the old logo days, eventually talked myself off the ledge but if they had looked like the new logo one no way, that really brings it together on this model

Agree. I hate how much I like it.

The rich man’s shogun, for lack of a better characterization and one of the all time greats from the old GS days made even better by passage of time

Pretty much deep seiko dna on all vectors

Congrats

Thanks everyone. I think I'll keep this one for a bit.
A superb watch. I have the steel version and absoilutely love it.
