Anyway...





The SBGA285... probably the cheapest GS Spring Drive?

Didn't take a photo of the first Grand Seiko watch just behind me. Sigh.

SD4K reporting, good size for skinny wrist

Nice watch.

But how come the date does not have a magnifying glass?

Rolex also assembled by hand.
But definitely more automated.
It's not deliberate but rather their line quite huge.
And the world only know rolex as luxury watch.
Everyone from.top to bottom wants a rolex.
Also AD Don't receive alot of sports rolex. So they keep only for the vvip. They do have stocks but all kept in safe.
There are definitely more rolex AD than PP AD.
So the stocks to go around also lesser.


PP - not accessible to normal folks like us.
The price hike is a joke but those with the cash don't mind it.
All these out of stocks bs happen after Rolex warned AD not to mark up.

I for one couldn't care less about shitty celebrities being watch brand ambassadors. Unnecessary cost hikes to pander to impressionable people.

they need these people to connect to the younger audience of being cool to actually wear a watch.

i think watches are probably a man's only jewelry. but sadly not a lot of people appreciate watches as it should be.

a rolex to them is a symbol that's all. same goes for other brands as well.
