    Received New Grand Seiko SBGM023

    I received my new Grand Seiko SBGM023 from World Lux (awesome experience) and here are some pictures

    The packaging is nicely done but not over the top
    From the outside in
    Simple paper sleeve
    Sleeve removed
    Box cover removed reveals a parchment inner liner
    Under the parchment is a folding cover and the velvet box
    Within the folding cover is some general info and the testing specifications (not the data)
    Open the velvet box and the watch sits on a pillow
    I included 3 pictures of the watch sitting on the top of the velvet box
    Below the velvet box is the warrantee, the manual, a do's and don'ts manual (the English does not have the funny drawings like do not wear the watch while golfing as a good shot leads to a good shock to the watch, a don't) and a card with contact info to the Grand Seiko concierge line (nice touch)

    My biggest surprise was the watch was not running. But after reading about how Seiko sees the watch as something you build a relationship with and are responsible for, I wound her up and experienced the joy of bringing the watch to life so to speak.

    Another surprise is how fantastic the back looks. I will try to get some decent pictures of that as well. All the detailed metal finishing leads to an image similar to some modern holiday wrapping.

    I wore it yesterday and today and have really enjoyed it so far.

    I'm rather jealous! Your particular model of GS is one of my "grails."

    Enjoy in good health. Your watch is fantastic.

    Congrats on a great watch!

    The day GS starts making some sportier models (aside from the SBGE001 and GS divers), I'll be picking one up.

    Thanks for the well wishes.

    This is a great community and has been very helpful toward me choosing this watch.

    Here are a couple of pictures of the back of the watch (with some Nikko china I brought my wife back from Tokyo in the background).

    Looks cool. Plus all that Japanese expertise inside. Nice.

    I have to admit. I didn't like that watch at all in the ad photos but in real life it looks pretty damn good. I love when a watch does that.
