Dream come True?
I’m a Grand Seiko fan and a spring drive fan but that’s awful
My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature
Another dial ruined by a PR.
IS this enamel? Might be awesome in the flesh.
Will somebody please give me a short rant on the good points of Springdrive?
Pros and Cons.
Today would be a good day to delete your Facebook account, Here is why:
10 reasons to dump facebook:
Remove "presage", "spring drive", and the power reserve and it would be much better

- Higher accuracy
- Smooth seconds hand
- Less friction wear
- Cool engineering innovation
- Its accuracy comes from regulation through a quartz crystal, which, to be honest, is cheating. It's cool cheating, but it's cheating.
- Can only be serviced through Seiko
- Movement makes the watches very thick
Another plus of SD,if the Swiss made it,prepare to pay more than twice the current price and probably longer waiting list
That dial is just a solid no. If it only said Seiko as mentioned, it would be utterly elegant.
The roundish date hole in the square outline kills it for me. I know that's an enamel foible (say that 3x fast!), but I never liked it.
I don't mind the rest of the dial markings, but it would be better if the power reserve scale was inset a little.
Is it $2000? $3000?
