Default Grand Seiko elegance collection.

Absolutely stunning in their simplicity.
I would love to get my hands on one of these.

...and that's the beauty of it all. Top notch IMHO. Good read but sadly, unattainable for me.

Unattainable for you and me both, I just love to read about what Seiko are up to especially with Grand Seiko & Credor. Maybe one day...

Grand Seiko, grand watches. Incredible power reserve and the hand work on the dials is top notch. Thanks Gary

The dial procedure is interesting, it's beautiful.
Reminded me of this Glashutte dial i looked at last week, wish i could find what i was looking at, was interesting how it was produced. Entirely different production but reminded me of this one.

Extraordinary stuff Desk, and what's so neat is how like you said
they seem so simple, but there are so many complex things that
go into the watches at the same time ! That alone is an art
in itself on these works of art right?!!

Seiko really astonishes every time they show us a new watch, or
watches. Have to look at these a little longer if you don't mind.

Thanks once again sir !!!

wow thanks for posting very handsome watches. I think for that kinda money there is other choices for me. Having said that this elegance collection is some of the nicest Seiko watches I've ever seen. Sorry I should say Grand Seiko. I would fancy a manual wind up

I reread the article and have a comment on the author’s opinion.

“The only concern that this has raised among the Grand Seiko fan base, is that as the choices increase and the firm moves its image more and more upmarket, that at some point Grand Seiko will to some extent lose its appeal as a company that offers an unmatched price-value proposition.”

Presage models offer unmatched price:value. I expect GS to up its game, and I’m a big GS fan.

That steel is just badass.
