Heard of the Grand Seiko for a very long time but didn't come across to research it. Last month was shopping in a mall in Thailand (I live in Thailand) and came across a watch fair so just browsing around came across this very elegant watch a Grand Seiko (SBGA093). After about a month had some time googled to do some research and happened to come into watchuseek website. The more I read about Grand Seiko here the more I am convinced to get the SBGA093.
So last Sunday went back to Siam Paragon mall after paying for the SBGA093 the sales assistant showed me a SBGH013 Hi-Beat 36000. I've got no idea what he meat by a Hi-Beat anyway I was attracted to the beige colour dial and the brown leather combined to make the whole watch so "rustic" I couldn't resist it so I bought it as well.
When I came back into WUS to read about the watch and about Hi-Beat I thought I's made a great decision. Gosh I'm so happy. I wish to thank contributors here who had helped me make the right decision and directed me to be more knowledgeable in a great brand the Grand Seiko. I'm now very very excited to wear them on a daily basis and so far past few days there were already 6 people who asked me about what I am wearing on my wrist when I told them its a Seiko they were shock but I'd explained its actually a Grand Seiko a few of them told me they'd understand me as they also know my love for Lexus over European.
So this is it
I've done some more research here and I thought I like the GMT the SBGJ001 and a SBGA125 which is part of the 55th 62GS anniversary collection and asked the Thai retailer to reserve both watches for me till I get back to Bangkok next weekend from my traveling in Indonesia.
