Looks like Grand Seiko has a lot of changes going on too guys. Including just having
'Grand Seiko' on the dial, and not Seiko in order to try, and separate themselves from
Seiko.

A few new watches include the First Grand Seiko reissued to look like the original from
1960 with 38mm cases in platinum, and rose-gold, and 9S64 movement. Followed by
a larger 40.5mm titanium Reimagined First GS with 9S68 inside, Grand Seiko Hi-beat
36,000 Professional 600m with 46.9mm titanium case, helium escape valves, Tuna-like
"L-shaped" gaskets, black, and blue hobnail pattern dials that resist magnetic fields,
and 9S85 automatic. Then last, but not least Grand Seiko Black Collection with limited
edition model with dark blue dial, and rose gold accents. Along with white dial, and
black dial variations. All with 46.4mm Zirconia, and titanium cases, and Spring Drive
chronograph with GMT movements.



















Saw these over at Fratello Watches guys...

For $13K (for Diver) I will buy a Rolex Daytona that will go up in value every year I own it. I am not sure who is buying these, but I could buy 4 RGM Divers for the price of one of these. (Or a Rolex Sea-Dweller and an RGM). I just do not see the value at this price.

Another great point Gary !  Honestly, never get the pricing.

Guess these are more in the out of this world cool watch category. Meant to show what Seiko
can do, and how they can push the boundaries. But I'm with you !
