Hello, I'm new here.
Lemme introduce myself: I've been interested in watches for a while and have tried a lot of different brands/models, eventually flipping most of it to buy my first Grand Seiko, thanks in part to this forum :)
So my collection is now down to only two pieces, a Grand Seiko HEQ (SBGT037), and a vintage King Seiko hi-beat (4502-7000), and I love both very much.
I'm thinking I might buy another GS quartz down the road: I love the simplicity/versatility of the designs and the maintenance-free dependable movement. And they're just so beautiful !
I've read things about modern Grand Seikos not being quite on par with older models, is that true? Which models would those be? SBGT035? SBGX063? SBGX083?
And how exactly would it impact the quality, if it were true?
So anyway... that brings me to this thread. Which currently available GS quartz models would you recommend besides the one I already have?
How about those new 'active' models, any real life pictures? I think I rather like the SBGX085, but I havent been able to find any real pictures...
