    i think seiko is finally realising marketing and exposure is important to build brand value among the general consumer. there is more advertising abt GS in the past 2 years (outside Japan) than the 50 years since it existed.

    for example nobody knows that the tag caliber 1887 is a seiko based movement. yet the carrera flies off the shelf much faster than the GS because lewis hamilton is on the poster.

    GS is probably one of the most under-valued brand. The quality of the finishing and the accuracy of the movement puts many Swiss brands to shame. And for the price they are charging, it is great value for money.

    If you notice the GS Spring Drive, the second hand is so smooth you don't see the jerking on other mechanical watches. The quality of the finishing on the GS range is exceptional. Hand finished.

    Congrats on your acquisition. Wear it in good health!

    Unfortunately, most of the time, i.e. anything more than $1k, we are literally paying for branding and marketing. Most watches seriously doesn't cost that much to make. I can see how lucrative watch businesses are with such high mark-ups.

    GS is great brand. I recently bought 2 limited editions of the mechanical GMT and SD GMT. Great pieces.

    Always been amazed with JDM technology and products since young, especially their cars ^^. My most coveted watch at the moment would be the GS SBGA029 Spring Drive Diver. Hope this brand flourishes and get the recognition and prestige it deserves.

    Went to thongsia to look at the watches. Very elegant GS are. Thinking of getting the blue GMT leather strap. Heard its cheaper to get from Japan?
