.... my firm has been doing some work for a Japanese firm in Tokyo and today while at a conference with the clients I saw it "in situ" on one of our clients wrist!!
I respectfully complimented him on it and he took it off and let me look it over closely . I first saw it on the sales part of the TZ forum and REALLY liked it, but after getting a chance to see one "live" so to speak, it looks like I've got some real work ahead of me to save up for this one ! When I DO aquire it, my WIS days will be over as I can't see EVER needing another watch !! It is a hand wound Grand Seiko SBGR031 ( the photo is from the seller on the TZ Sales Forum) and though this is a good photo, it is NOTHING as good as seeing it "in person"
I have not EVEr seen a watch as beautifully made and finished as this one !! As much as I appreciate many of the pieces made in Switzerand and Germany, I have seen NOTHING to compare with this watch for the price, EVER
