It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Seiko. There are many fans here too...Domo is a huge fan *LOL*
To the Neophyte, Seiko is this frumpy department store/mall brand found at Walmart and the ilk.
There is another side to Seiko. Ok, there's also the side that makes ridiculously expensive crafted watches reaching $400,000 (the Credor Minute Repeater) and the Credor Eichi (not ecchi) for a cool $74,000.
There is also the Grand Seiko range which rivals anything from Rolex.
There is an even lesser known aspect to this horological giant..Seiko watches that boggle the mind and are at the cutting edge of cool.
yeah the e-ink R2D2 model.
And then there's the crazy
the WHOA!!!! I want it so much...why don't I have $28,000 now?
yup...for Astronauts only ;)
and finally...the watch that I cry myself to sleep at night because I can never have one
Not bad for a frumpy little mall brand eh?
