    Is it just me?

    I love watches for a lot of reasons, obviously the movement etc

    but sure we all agree that the way the watch looks is very important, I for instance love watches with lovely dials, and applied logos etc, and Ive owned Rolex datejusts due to the lovely applied crown logo, but I also have Seiko 5's.. which cost £50 and also have amazing dial work (look at the quality in the macro shot)

    do I have a point, NO, just want to see what everyone thinks is the best quality workmanship they own..

    The Tag Heuer Link Chrono I sold was close to perfect. Case, crown, and dial were excellent.

    Hands down it's my Grand Seiko SBGR083. Every single little detail was painstakingly thought of and implemented with precision, unrivaled [IMHO] by watches costing even more:

    Many watches are so similar, that it's the little details that set apart certain watches as special from other pieces that are just ordinary. I've always really loved the waves only Seamaster, depending on the lighting they go from invisible to holy-cow-wow.

    Love the Seamaster waves, I swapped a 2254 for this just for the extra attention to the dial work the applied logo and markers

    The best finish in my watch box lies with my Citizen Signature Grand Classic. My only gripe is the "hole" in the center of the dial for the stem that drives the hands, it just feels like an oversight that should have been addressed.

    Quality was so amazing to me (admittedly, at the time the most expensive watch I'd bought) that I got another one...
