    New Credor GCCD

    Far less brutish than the new Grand Seiko sports series but with similar accents to the case lugs. Touted as sporty elegance with new bracelet, 6l75 movement, 10 atm and what appears to be an interesting overlaid dial design.

    Looks like a good alternative for the non spring drive crowd. Cheers!

    Oh, I love it. That case looks beautiful and I really like that bracelet. I also really like the funky Roman numeral font, but I have a feeling there are probably just as many that dislike it. I don’t particularly like the lume pips and I’d prefer a no date version, but I’m eagerly looking forward to seeing some real life pics of this.

    Nice, very much resembling Cartier Santos or moreso Roadster. Maybe too much so, but it's a very nice looking watch.

    I was just musing the other day about the Presage 6L35 movement, and if Seiko was planning to make a higher grade version for use in a thinner automatic GS. Much like 4L25 led to Credor 4L75 movement 10 years ago. Looks like events repeating and they're sticking with the upgrade going to Credor.

    Two of my more sentimental pieces are my Credor GCBW997 (4L75) and GCBZ995 (8L36) with their sparsely used discontinued movements. I always thought it was weird Credor ceased to have a basic mechanical automatic model. Nice to see them start it up again.

    Great looking watch! Has a Cartier and JLC look to it, but still unique in own way. Congrats!

    Ooh, not for me. Don't like it at all. Oh well, it's good we don't all like the same things. Makes things 'interesting'.

    I like it. Elegant monochrome art deco design appeals to me, and I especially like the pop of color from the blued second hand, the black date frame, and I really dig the sandwich dial. 11.4 mm thickness is a plus.
    Overall, a nice, cohesive design.
    Probably dressier than I need right now (I'm between jobs).
    According to the Credor 2019 catalog, Y670,000. There is a light-faced version too. PDF of the catalog is here: https://storage.seikowatches.com/pro...redor_2019.pdf
    And the page on the Credor site: https://www.credor.com/lineup/detail/?no=GCCD995
    I'd like to learn more about the 6L75 movement.
    Thanks, Lethaltoes!

    Another example of where Credor shines: watches that I think are cool but don't want to wear.

    Seiko weirdness. The 6L75 is an upgraded 6L35, but the 6L35 is already a downgraded version of the 4L25 which was upgraded to 4L75 for Credor. So they took the downgrade of the upgrade and upgraded it.

    If you can tell whether the end result is higher or lower grade than an 8L, you're clear to skip BA in Math and go directly to MA
