    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.

    Remove "presage", "spring drive", and the power reserve and it would be much better

    Thanks
    PROS
    - Higher accuracy
    - Smooth seconds hand
    - Less friction wear
    - Cool engineering innovation

    CONS
    - 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?
