Visited Big Time yesterday, it’s my first time there, so I was there with my family, wanted to visit them for the longest time, yet couldn’t find the time to be there.

Nice to see a display of Seiko JDMs, Tunas and all the Orients and Orient Stars in the same place. My wife wanted to get a gift for me, so we were browsing around and I wanted to look at the Orient Stars that was posted recently by chris and eventually a few pieces caught my eye.

Wife suggested the M-Force but I didn’t like the design and it’s kinda light for it’s size. Tried the Orient Stars but I prefer my dress watches to be on leather as the bracelet makes the watch looks small, then finally… the GMT or they called it the Starseeker.

I went on about this being the newer GMT model, although it was launched more than a year ago. Yeoman’s review on it:http://yeomanseiko.com/2011/09/10/orient-star-gmt-dj00001b/

I had the chance to handle one in Japan, 3 years ago but it was the older model, the GMT hand was not independent. This however is, hand winding, hacking with a independent GMT hand. Basically like a ETA 2893 movement.

After handling it for a while, my mind is set, this is it.

Yup. I was the first round-eye in the West to review it, too:

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