...The fit and finish of the watch rivals anything put out by Switzerland apart from the top three.

The design cues of Grand Seiko watches are typically Japanese. It's an acquired taste for some... Ultimately, it's a matter of taste, and the willingness to try something new. I for one am glad I did.


Awesome watch and great pic!
Here is the dragon of the GS Spring Drive line... next to some dragon fruit.

I'm all about longer power reserves....wish that more manufacturers would focus on this as a true "value-added" feature.



Also, I'm a day or two late on this, but just for the sake of pr0n (you can never have enough).... here's what I consider a decent example of EXP II on NATO. Obviously not my pic, or watch:

I like it Roger.

Mesh is really comfortable too, when it fits well.

Nice combo.

The mesh is perfect for that watch. The traditional mesh and milanaise bracelets have made a comeback in the watch world the last couple of years.
I've also seen alpine skier, Aksel Lund Svindal wearing the Camaro cased Longines on several occasions.

Usually not a fan of mesh but it looks spot on there.  Nice.
