Historically, GS has been an incredible value proposition and an opportunity to own more than a three hander, e.g. GMT. This year's Baselworld proves that Seiko is no longer interested in many people's business with the incredible northward pricing. Personally I don't believe Seiko needs to put the full share of their progress on the backs of consumers. The watches are too thick and in my gut I just feel like that is their problem and they need to make up for this fault, just as they need to improve their bracelet clasps because there is room for improvement, not as a means of jacking prices. Introducing high end movements into other lines, Presage and Prospex, just confuses the separation that GS has taken recently. I find myself looking at Rolex in ways I never dreamed of, I don't want to pay over $7K for a watch that immediately loses significant value when it touches my wrist, not at this level of investment. I was lucky enough to start buying King Seikos the past few years and enjoy the hunt and capture of nice models.
