This hobby of ours..is a strange and particular one.
So many quirks..so many nuances.
I find myself having 'daring' enough tastes...yet I have the most boring of brands (mikeyrolex anyone?)
Grand Seiko. So polarizing.
Grand Seiko quartz? What the heck...? Why would anybody pay that much for a Seiko? Much less a quartz?
Yet...the ownership of a GS..especially a GS quartz...is one that defines this crazy hobby of ours for me.
Wearing this new arrival...looking at it in different lights...
Owning a GS is about accepting & loving the timepiece as a whole. Its not about the movement...the fit...finishing...the name...the value anymore.
I stare at it...not to look at the time..or admire the different contours and edges on it..or to look at the hands moving..
I can't stop looking because it is that alluring. I am paying that much..because it is a damn good watch...and a very fine looking...shall I say it..beautiful timepiece.
o look at that white! look at the full raised markers!
It just shimmers away. steady solid hands...moving...they don't tick. u don't hear any ticking!
*of course Domo & CitizenM had a hand in this
**Dan from Timeless Luxury Watches is the man to go to of course.
