    It's a great daily wearer. Would easily fit the one watch forever brief.

    Another couple of photos. One in car shot with luminosity and the other right hand wear showing the bling factor reflectivity.

    the more I see this watch the more I'm convinced it's found that sweet spot between tool and something more elegant. The crystal doesn't distort the 5 min. indices nor dial within, when seen straight on, just gorgeous.

    I love the watch! It looks really nice, well finished, and that lume is AWESOME!
    The only niggling detail for me is that bracelet. The watch's price point puts it in around Omega territory, and the Omega bracelets look far better. Based on grand seiko everyone knows they're capable of an awesome bracelet, so they real should have delivered that with this.
    But hey, the watch should be enjoyed for years to come!

    Yes I will probably get some sort of worthy after market strap for this watch.
    I'm glad it comes with a bracelet though. It may not be a particularly great bracelet, but it is still a decent quality one from the looks of it. Always good to have that option. Too bad they're such a pain to reattach them to the watch once they're off.

    Great pictures, thanks! Any chance you can snap a photo from the side that shows the domed sapphire?

    I honestly thought there'd be more in the wild now.

    The watch is truly one of the great ones imo. It's a watch that grows on you and the little things all add up to a great ownership experience.

    I have another two arriving I love it that much. One on bracelet, one one strap and another for the future.

    Not great photos but as requested...
