Ryan, possibly if there is a version in a white face as I'm not sold on the blue, lovely as it is. Size wise though, definitely in the sweet spot :thumbup:
Strangely, they do the champagne, black and blue dials as per the SBGX, but no white :?

Re: A grand time trying on Grand Seiko

I did really like the SBGX059 HAQ that I used to own, lovely case, beatiful dial and amazing polished angled hands. Not to mention unbelievable accuracy. The only thing that made me sell was it just felt a little on the small side to me @ 37mm. https://i.imgur.com/QUQreXx.jpg?1 Dare I say the SBGV ...

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

Again, I have no skin in this game but I just want to point out the potential visual confusion that could be caused by having the seconds hand red tip of equal length to the red part of the GMT hand. Of course, the shapes are different, but at a glance, I think it could confuse - making the watch m...

Has the size been decided already or will that be another poll

It looks like 42mm unfortunately, but I'm trying to round up a posse of 38'ers :D

Re: A grand time trying on Grand Seiko

The blue SD in the first pic is the one I would go for if I went for another GS. :) What I read ... "The blue SD in the first pic is the one I am going for when I buy my next GS. :) " Agree, that SD is simply outstanding. I'd seen the green 9F GMT LE, but not the blue dial you photo'd. Lovely colou...

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

#3 looks the business imo!

Any small-wristed forumites wanting to jump on the 38mm bandwagon? A run of each size would be super-duper.

Just for clarity, are the base of the GMT hands meant to be different colours on the above renderings?

Re: Paint has come off He valve, Elite 1000

I can imagine your disappointment as this shouldn't happen on a watch this old. S**t happens I guess, just seems to happen quite often where CW are concerned lately. Like a couple of the other comments already, I prefer the discreet look without the paint, so I'd be all for removing or waiting for t...

Trying my hand at modding

I'd been contemplating picking up a Seiko diver for quite some time with the intention of modding it myself. I find the idea of creating a custom watch that no-one else owns really appealing. So I picked up a PADI mini turtle a couple of weeks ago and whilst the stock pepsi bezel is ok, I reckon thi...
