Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 vs Grand Seiko Snowflake

"This will probably divide opinions, however if you are looking to buy either of these two watches, it is hard to go wrong. Some key things for consideration between these two watches:

    • Prices between the two at retail is relatively the same, and if buying the Snowflake I advised to buy used simply for the fact that it takes a hit when worn and you can scoop them up at much less than retail.

    • The Snowflake dial is just incredible, and compared to the OP its not even a close comparison.

    • The OP is better on the wrist, with the refined lug design, and Oyster bracelet being standouts.

    • I think that the Rolex will be a little more versatile, and suit a wider range of occasions.

    • Spring Drive does provide better accuracy, and sweeps the seconds hand smoother than any watch out there, however is not a 100% mechanical movement.

Preference to what you like will be purely personal.

Whatever your preference, we all have different wrists, opinions and preferences, which is what makes this wonderful world of watches so good. Variety is the spice of life.

You're a genius. Yeah, save a couple for me, too.
I bought a dive watch from them that literally had “dive” in the name. The instructions said not to dive with it - it was only meant to LOOK like a dive watch. It was also fast by more that a minute per day. Garbage. Never again. - IWG buyer on Reddit

If a comparison like that got posted on WUS, the local troglodytes would undoubtedly make such a thread grow to 15 pages of verbal spunk in half a day.
