Cross post from public, but wanted to post here.
Very excited to finally add a Spring Drive to my collection (and of course a Grand Seiko). Think I got lucky one happened to be in stock at the local AD (not sure how scarce they are, I know they are very popular, but not sure *how* popular).
Few questions I have initially:
--Anything I should know about the watch, like any quirks with the titanium case, or with Spring Drive movements?
--The manual says it needs service every 3-4 years, which seems very short. Thoughts on this?
--72 hour power reserve - with the Spring Drive movement, does it go from running at 100% to stopping almost instantly (I imagine this is the case with the watch needing a given amount of power to run). Do you get a legit 72 hours, or is it less (or more) in practice?
Thanks, and excited to finally have a GS on my wrist! The second hand is hypnotic
