Re: First-Ever Grand Seiko Quartz GMTs

It's almost worth it just to get it 4 months ahead of time, not to mention the 5spy movement.

Re: First-Ever Grand Seiko Quartz GMTs

Also, just the ability to adjust the hour hand independently on a HAQ is super useful for different TZs and DST. Otherwise, your watch could be sufficiently accurate for a decade, but if you have to set the time twice a year (or more) anyway, it may not make a big difference.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Once we have Tudor BB58s in the shop I'll do some side-by-side shots just for fun.

It just might have to be this one: Rolex oyster 40mm case w/ triplock crown; second timezone bezel that can also be used as a dive timer, chronograph with screw down pushers, date, porcelain panda configuration, and a sapphire crystal all in a very attractive and legible execution.

Re: Thoughts on the Bremont Supermarine S301/BK

The case on the Bremont looks more visually interesting than the Tudor, but the Black Bay 58's dial and top hat crystal just looks richer to by eyes. The Bremont's dial looks basic and flat with the printed indices. The Tudor dial just catches my eye as much more visually interesting. BTW - I haven...

Thoughts on the Bremont Supermarine S301/BK

I’m not sure where to begin with the S301; it’s undeniably attractive, it’s legit with its 300m of water resistance, and it’s sized just right at 40mm. There’s an option for a bracelet, but the custard lume goes great with the supple brown strap with custard stitch highlights. The “patina” extends t...

Re: Tudor Black Bay GMT Review

something new to me, BB increase thickness with in-house movement to 14.8mm? What is the ETA mvt case thickness? I believe it was about 12.8mm. The in-house version is significantly thicker, but it looks like they wanted to produce a single case that could hold all of their future movements, so the...

Re: Tudor Black Bay GMT Review

A couple of the pics make the bluelook pretty dark. I know it’s just the pics, but it gives a bit of a feel for how a black bezel version would look. I think I can chance waiting for that. This is actually bluer than it is in a lot of lighting. Tudor's stock photos are kind of misleading with their...

What's the crown tube/collar/whatever made of? I understand it's the color of steel, but is it steel? I've been wondering that myself--I'm not sure if it's still aluminum or not. My guess is that it's steel, and I say that because I think aluminum was chosen because of its superior ability to be an...

I'm told it's nothing too serious, so perhaps we'll be able to resume the event next year.

I’d certainly group case finishing into areas they excel. Few brands in their price range come close.
That's a good point. A lot of strengths in the GS portfolio.

They sell so many watches in the DJ style and they’re all too thick. Only the quartz are under 13mm. Are these ones all 13.5mm? That’s as thick as a Rolex sub. Too thick for what they are. I imagine thick exhibition back doesn't help. Kinda the same problem with Omega thickness Yeah but the movemen...

Re: New Grand Seiko Limited Editions! Photos From Vegas

I'm ok with their thickness, but I would love to see them make thinner watches down the road, at least as an option. It's not like they can't do it, they could just pop 9S64s into everything, but for whatever reason they don't want to.
