    They would have been better off calling it something other than Grand Seiko just like Lexus doesn't call themselves Toyota.

    Since few people have asked, here is the link: https://aliexpress.com/item/1005003481838685.html

    Beware, keep in mind it's Aliexpress. I should get the product soon!

    Interestingly enough, it seems powered by a Seagull ST1612 movement which is a bit better than your average shitty rep movement.

    I ordered one (ice blue version) for around 130 € (for science) and I will do an extensive review of it when I get it.


    Would you plz be so kind as to provide the link?

    I find myself staring and admiring the dial more than other watches. Side by side comparison with some gen PP and AP my friends own, although not for that long, Grand Seiko still stands out.

    Having said all these, in my opinion, there are some very obvious flaws:
    * the case is a lot thicker
    * overall weight balance is not as good as Rolex/PP/AP
    * watch lug, end link recess, case shape not as “beautiful”
    * bracelet needs huge improvement
    * movement/calibre not as stable

    Still, for the price you pay, it’s a magnificent watch no doubt!

    cannot get past that Seiko on the dial... call it snobby they are just not my thing. lol

Bracelet design looks like being pulled from a regular Seiko watch. again, these are my opinions no lies. I know plenty of people like them and i dont doubt their finish

    I can't speak for others, but what I like about my Snowflake (and GS in general) is....

    1) The dials - which to me are mesmerizing. Certainly, the details on my snowflake dial are subtle yet stunning, giving me so much pleasure as I often get lost simply staring at it.

    2) The finish - as has been said, the level of finish on a Grand Seiko is simply unmatched at this price (perhaps any).

    3) The tech...The spring drive is a marvel, and the smooth sweep a joy. But even the cheaper quartz movements are top-notch. The torque in which the quartz ticks is fantastic.

    Overall, I feel the precision of GS is unmatched, at least in watches that I can justify (under £10k), and GS offers a product that is punching above its weight. In terms of quality of the product between, say a GS and a Rolex, then there really is no comparison. The GS blows Rolex out of the water.
