Orlando sprouted a GS AD

Orlando sprouted a GS AD

I don't know how long he's been there but it had somehow escaped my notice until a week or so ago.

Anyhow:

Titanium so only 100 grams. I didn't think titanium would be provided with the zaratsu finish but it is by golly.

I am now officially done. For a while.

Indeed, one must take the bad with the good. Perhaps worse is the observation that at 41mm I'm going to be wearing a lady's watch.

Thanks all - fair warning: the snowflake is very persuasive in person. Perhaps a bit too persuasive if you ask me.

Bravo, Hawk. Killer caseback, a dial that's impossible not to fall for (saw one the past two weeks and it's freakin' great), and purchased at an AD to boot.

I mean, that's a day right there.

That is one fine Grand Seiko. The fine dial with that great caseback, I can see why that watch called out to you. Congratulations Hawk.

Indeed. To be sure I consider you chief among the several enablers on this forum for GS.

This, it should be noted, is more of a "thank you" than any sort of complaint. However, in the interest of a retirement sans living under a bridge I do not intend for it to become a habit and have resolved to avoid being physically in the general vicinity of anything Credor.

Happy to "help". Stay away from the Miami Seiko boutique and I doubt you will cross paths with any Credors in the wild.

That''s incredibly handsome.

I had been down on Seiko a little bit until I started paying attention to all the MM's and so forth, and all of the GS around here, The Presage I bought from Robatsu (and gifted) renewed my former enthusiasm, so I'm lookin' for something again. I can't spend GS money but there's some really cool stuff off the quartz / kinetic beaten path. I'd like a couple'a Seiko autos; the XR-A223R or whatever the hell in the Pressage was really nicely done.

I'd buy that if I could Hawk, beautiful, man.
