Quartz... A word that you don't often read on MONOCHROME. I'm not afraid to say that and freely admit that we are watch snobs. We love fine mechanics and Haute Horlogerie. However, the watch that we're about to review has a quartz regulator, but isn't battery powered - and that already makes things slightly different. Secondly, this watch is made by Grand Seiko - and we've already seen that it is committed to doing things in a different (better?) way. And last but not least, this quartz crystal is part of a hybrid movement, mixing old-school mechanics and modernity. This watch is the*Grand Seiko Spring Drive Snowflake SBGA211 and no, we're not afraid to review it in this "online magazine dedicated to fine watches".
