A little while ago, I bought one of these:
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?
