    Grand Seiko vs. Rolex Diver

    Grand Seiko Spring-Drive ($6700) or a similar-costing Rolex Diver?

    Uh....$6700 for a Seiko???? Better be made out of gold or platinum and come with a Kawasaki for that kind of price! There's reasons why Rolex can command those dollars....Whats Seiko's reasons????

    everyone goes down on rolex like its the second comming of christ, its not, that being said doesnt mean that that seiko is worth 6700, neither watch is worth the 6700 for what they provide.

    i really like the seiko spring drive, but i won't pay 7k for one..

    i would have to go with the rolex 1680 for that kind of cash,and maybe another seiko mm300.

    Ian, way to start war dude!

    Rolex SD DeepSea:

    Functions:
    Depth rating:
    Aesthetic:
    Innovation:
    Cachet:
    Exclusivity:

    Grand Seiko Diver:

    Depth rating:
    Aesthetic:
    Innovation:

    Other than the SD DeepSea, I'd take the Grand Seiko Diver over any other Rolex Diver based on case size and material. The power reserve display is nice too.

    Looks like someone needs to do some homework on Grand Seiko. Worth the asking price and then some...of course, I voted the GS - waaaaay more interesting, as accurate as a decent quartz watch, and with a pedigree that even Rolex would be jealous of. Built to last and so much more exclusive, it makes a Patek Philippe look common.

    A very good point Alex, I just amended my post.

    Hey Lex,

    I wanted to add that the movement in the Seiko is a work of art (and genius) compared to the utlitarian "tractor" that sits under the hood of the Rolex.

    Rolex 3135:



    Seiko Spring drive (the bottom one is the same as that found in the GS Diver):
