    Which is hardly surprising. Spring Drive has a spring, but the escapement is controlled by a quartz crystal.
    Well in part the GS SD, is mechanical, yes it has a quartz, but it has to be used as would an mechanical to charge its 70 hr power reserve, it terms of Rolex beating GS SD even in mechanical terms, the GS is far better in every aspect, and a damned sight cheaper. You wear a Rolex to impress people, you wear a Grand Seiko to impress yourself without the snob factor.

    Still struggling with the relevance of this. And the coherence, tbh

    Navitimer of course, love mine in blue. At 41mm the a23322 is the best IMO.
    I've had a SO steelfish in the past and is a great piece but too tall and chunky, as most of modern Breitlings.

Usually better, like w/ your Avenger Seawolf. And I hear very good things about the B-01 movement accuracy.

    Discussion of Grand Seiko spring drives and comparison to Rolex accuracy has absolutely nothing to do with the OP's original question. Please amicably keep the thread on its original subject or it will be closed immediately.
