Well it's not actually my first Grand Seiko as such but it's certainly the first that has only the Grand Seiko logo (the first of its kind) and ironically probably the last GS watch for me in a good while.
This was a fairly unexpected one for me. It was only after making local inquiries that the boutique here said all their allocated stock was spoken for already. They said, without any prompting by me, that they themselves (ie sales staff etc) couldn't get them for themselves. They suggested I put myself down for the modern re-interpretation and while I'm sure that is a fine watch it didn't really appeal to my taste.
I looked elsewhere and quickly found one available. If not for customs and duties I would have had this 2 weeks ago but Easter etc got in the way and it was today I finally received it. There are already some beautiful pictures and other great owner threads on this one so nothing ground breaking to see here. I'll post up more in time as it's still very very new to me but here it is.
