    My Grand Seiko has ruined my watch collection

    A little while ago, I bought one of these:

    Name:  GS 10-9.JPG
Views: 2231
Size:  103.2 KB

    The problem with the watch is that it has no problems. I love it more now than when I first bought it. Everything about the watch is perfect in my eyes.

    However, this is a problem for the rest of my watch collection. I simply don't look at the rest of my collection the same way. Whereas before I looked at my collection and was quite happy with it, now I just look at almost all of my watches and think that they're defective because they can't hold a candle to my GS. I have a couple of casual weekend watches I'm still happy with, but during the week I have to talk myself into wearing anything besides the Grand Seiko. Maybe it's because the GS was my first really nice watch or because it's just so exquisitely finished, but either way this watch has just ruined my view toward my other watches.

    Any GS owners out there have a similar experience?

    Best thing to do is to give the GS to me so that you fall back in love with the rest of your watches.

    All that stuff in my signature, plus several other things I'm selling right now. In other words, too much. Yes, I'm a dummy.

    In your heart, you know what needs to be done...

    Sell all your other watches, and put the money towards a black dialed GS-- then you'll be set for life...
    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    For now I have only two watches and the division is easy. GS rules at home and on weekends, Speedy goes to office.

    Couple things.

    First - the Grand Seiko is an absolutely stunning watch. And you could be completely understood for making it your one-watch watch collection.

    Second - I suspect you may still be in a bit of a honey moon phase. While the GS is, no doubt, a great watch, it can't do everything. I know when I got my Rolex Air-King, and later my Tudor, I felt like I'd never wear my other watches again. And I didn't. For a long while. Months even. Then, eventually, I began wanting to have the Doxa orange on my wrist. Or the Tissot Blue. And they worked their way back into the rotation. To the extent, even, that I've worn my Doxa for almost a month in a row now - just because it feels right.

    "Save the Ocean" Turtle; Tudor Black Bay; DOXA 1000T Project Aware (75/92); Seiko SKX013; Garmin Descent; Tissot PRS200
