    An old friend of mine once dropped a Porsche engine into an old Volkswagen beetle, upgraded all the brakes etc – no one else knew.

    This is the definition of a Grand Seiko, quality & luxury without showing off.

    Very good article. The more I read the more I want one - just wish I could handle them in person first.

    Not sure I agree with this. From everything I read, GS is known for their high quality exterior finishing. Even this article talks about the zaratsu finishing. That to me is showing off - in a good way. In fact it's a big part of the attraction to the brand for me. I certainly wouldn't liken the exterior to a VW beetle.

    Nice article. I read it earlier today. The only issue I have is that now I want a GS more then ever. As previously stated they are quality and luxury that's just for the owner to enjoy.

    Ok fair point a bad example - what I was trying to say the GS are quality without showing off, the uneducated has no idea what you really have.

    I think the character of GS could be described as fundamentally introspective. If we describe a watch as part of your character, part of your expression of self, the GS is an expression primarily to its wearer.

    To be fair that article was a sponsored post and therefore written by the advertiser and not the editorial and it read as such. That said there was much to enjoy in it and certainly hasn't diminished my appetite for a grand Seiko.... at some point.
