New Quartz GS!

Post by Seppia » Fri Dec 29, 2017 4:44 am

Quartz GMT, the top ones are 39mm, the bottom one 40mm.
The new branding sucks balls, but other than that those are absolutely killer.

Jacob please find some issue with those for me, or I’m in trouble.

Sorry. My first thought about the top one was "love".

Top left one is a beauty!!! Like the big date (matching date wheel), twisted lugs, great size too :love:

A white dial would also rock.

Looks like a perfect daily, loving the size. Wonder what these will go for price wise.

On second thought, the top ones look to have an exact replica of the Omega twisted lug design. If that's the case :puke:

I love them on Omega. They ARE Omega. What I don't love is Seiko shopping everyone else's back catalog for design ideas when they have their own great stuff to pull from.

It could just be the pictures though. Perhaps the lugs tops are flat and it's a perfect execution of the Grammar of Design. Or, maybe it's another example of Seiko ripping off the Swiss brands.

They don't appear twisted in these pics but we all know how crappy leaked catalog shots from Seiko are vs. the real thing.

The LE looks great. And I know I should think like the cool kids do, but quartz, even GS quartz, is just not my cuppa.

I doubt they’re a twisted design. Reminds me of how the lugs taper on the SARX033. Since this is quartz it might be somewhat affordable. 39mm is perfect.

You might be right. These have a slight twist, but not as pronounced as the picture's shading suggests.

They seem to have a case design that's very similar to these models. Pictured here sbgx087
Would not say it's lifted from Omega, the lugs look inclined but not twisted

The specs on this say 38mm, so it could be the exact same case, with the extra 1mm added by the 24h fixed bezel

This is likely. If that’s the case I love this case and this one looks like a winner.

Top left is definitely a winner. Looks great. :)

Either one of the top two would be a winner for me. It is the quartz version of the Grand Seiko GMT SBGM001. Which I also love. But it does look like the quartz version has lume on the hour markers. :mrgreen:

They look great, but they've already got a perfect GS GMT in the SBGJ001. :)

The automatic GMTs all look amazing, but they are so damn tall
