"snowflake Tudor" refers to the snowflake shaped hour hand.As for the snowflake dial, you must be talking about the GS SBGA011 that was discussed in TWAT not that long ago.http://forums.watchuseek.com/f21/grand-seiko-snowflake-sbga011-572136.html#post4189495http://forum.tz-uk.com/showthread.php?223744-Grand-Seiko-SBGA011-Snowflake-anyone-own-one
My taste in watches might have changed somewhat as a result of being exposed to everything I see posted here and elsewhere, but I haven't taken a 180 deg. turn. I.e., I also used to think the Nautilus and R.O. were hideous. Nowadays, I think the Nautilus is alright. Still don't like the R.O. though and doubt I ever will.
