Certainly very interesting and very different from the Swiss watch factories I have visited.

Thanks for sharing that Dan I enjoyed watching it! :thumbsup:

When I think of Seiko it is usually their quartz watches that come to mind. Their spring powered mechanical watches in the Grand Seiko line are of a different caliber all together.

Good to see Seiko offering this level of craftsmanship and their prices on Grand Seiko line are more down to earth than many others. :yes: thanks for sharing Dan

But there not sharing it with the uk market, neither the new yummy prospex maritime lovelies, nor the 0033 dress watch. So frankly seiko, you can...

Seiko does make good, reliable and relatively priced watches. Still had this mechanical Grand Seiko - bought in Hong Kong almost 5 years back for SGD4500 and still functioning. :thumbsup:

Jerry.......Your watch is still in the Grand Seiko line up. The designation is now SBGM021.

The Grand Seiko SBGC005 in High-intensity titanium is a beauty, too.
