    Get ready to sell your Grand Seikos.......

    ....because Hodinkee just did an article on them!

    https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/gr...0-best-stories

    Buy now before the Hodinkee price bump and wait a bit to sell during the frenzy.

    Although, I have to say their new steel model is pretty nice. Elegant, simple, straightforward—something I didn’t think GS was capable of anymore. Manual wind, no power reserve messing up the dial, and a decent price too. Steel is $5,700 and the gold is $17,200. Shame the steel is limited to 1960 pieces, that could have been a staple of collections everywhere.



    The article is linked in the original article I posted.

    Why should we sell them? I'm keeping mine.

    I think I'll just wait another 45 years and pick them up at a discount. Let all those millennial sheep pay their Hodinkified prices.

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Well, it’s like every time Hodinkee does an in depth, it starts a feeding frenzy and prices go way up. So if you wanted to sell, now is the time to make a profit.

    I love the Eichi II. So beautifully simple, and so much care taken by hand. But I will never spend that much on a watch, sadly.

    Exactly my feelings.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t Hodinkee sell GS in their store; hence the “article”.

    This watch might be top of my list. I do wish the steel didn't have the blue second hand, but hey, I'm not spending $30K for the platinum version. I also wish the dauphine hands were faceted rather than flat with knife edge, but i could live with it. Excellent piece in nearly every way for my tastes.

    To be fair, they don’t hide that it’s a sponsored article.

    I like the one I posted better, and it costs only a tenth of the Eichi II.
