    Sorry, C, I was typing mine and saw your WRUW after I hit submit...mods, please delete mine and thanks!

    For the very first time in my watch voyage, with complete certainty, I can say that this one is a keeper...unless, I one day spring for the ALS Saxonia Moonphase and I trade it in.

    I stare at the dial, mesmerized, and the second hand smoothness, and did I mention the dial? Same precision of indices, hands and the blue second hand make this, IMO, one killer watch that as usual for a GS, plays amongst the best out there no matter the cost.

    From my first GS I always knew one had to be in my collection, and I thought the titanium would bother me as I prefer hefty watches, but after only a couple of days on the wrist, I completely don't care about my biggest fear as it wears like you have nothing on at all.

    No problem, Walter. I'm sure you were distracted by that GS dial; I can't criticize, you.

    Ahh, the wonders of Grand Seiko. I have worn (or kept running) my '73 GS for the last five days or so, and it is within a second of when I set the time last week. Very impressive. Gotta switch it around a bit, though, so Tuesday gets the Ikarus.



    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Day two of my “dual-display challenge” and an unexpected turn with a Citizen C050 Yacht Timer. I do love a yacht timer despite not having been on a yacht since I was young. I have a bimetallic case one of these too which I may have to bring into play to make the full week.



    By the way, envious of the lovely GS’s above, beautiful watches.
