    GS is my favorite brand. In the past few years, most of their new releases are just fugly. Please go back to what you do best GS. I agree with Raza - the 3 above look like mall watches.

    I like Seiko divers and currently own an SKX007 which I bought for around 200 bucks. It is all I need in regards to their dive watches, I understand that there's more refined finishes and better movements BUT for the price the quality you get is very hard to beat.

    As a non-Seiko or GS-guy, I could be persuaded on a GS but if they're gonna push the prices then it requires, at the very least, Rolex or Omega-grade clasps befitting a seriously expensive steel sports watch. I would've thought Seiko would get this and would be willing to look properly, in a true continuous improvement sense, at things like 904L etc. Spring Drive ain't enough if they wanna push higher.

    I get that the total pool of watch purchasers is declining so they need to punch the remaining pool for more money each time, but I'll be surprised if this works without a real boost in quality somewhere.

    I have to say I'm having a lot more fun with my toddler-proof gshocks than I ever thought I would.

    Would now be an appropriate time to talk about the handsets and markers? Seiko has some mighty fine stuff in the back catalogue but I can't get excited about many modern Seikos, at all.
