Dang.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Interesting shots of things you can't see unless you look really really hard for a really really long time with a really really close up lens.

Wow. Hard not to admire everything about these shots. Conversely, I'd love to see macro shots of Invicter or Crobling hands; close up, there's probably like more shavings than a barber shop on a Saturday.

I’m a little bit perturbed by the sloppiness of the Omega hands in particular. I have always felt Grand Seiko watches carry a superior level of detail / finish over Omega and Rolex and are more in line with JLC, but this is supeising to be honest.

Not sure you need to be perturbed. GS is definitely a notch above on finishing, the only reason they don't charge more is not because of the kindness of their heart. It's because they can't.... yet. They don't have the cachet of the other two in general. They're building it and when and if they get there, the prices will go up. So enjoy it while you can, because if they could, they'd be charging more for it. They aren't UNICEF after all.
