Something special for this #GSWednesday: A quick State-of-the-Collection-type of video, with a focus on Grand Seiko. Those who know me know that I'm truly passionate about the GS line and, no doubt in my mind, for very good reason: When taken holistically, these pieces offer, quite often, the best horological experience you can get in a comparable price range. Sure, not all pieces fit that bill, but it's pretty close. As the collection has evolved, so has my rationale behind it: My goal is to focus on key vintage pieces (either true vintage or faithful re-issues), limited editions, and Wako-only pieces. You will notice that there are a few exceptions to these rules, as I do own some production models. But they're very special to me, and definitely worth bending the rules for, like, for example, the Snowflake. So without further ado, here's the cast in the order in which they appear: The 3180 or "first" Grand Seiko, followed by the SBGW253, SBGR061, and SBGJ019 (all of which share the DNA of daddy 3180, as you can see by the case, hand and hour markers design). We then move down to the SBGH031 Wako model, the SBGA011 Snowflake, the unique LE SBGJ005, the SBGW047 (re-issue of the first 44GS, the first GS to abide by the principles of Taro Tanaka's Grammar of Design school), and the SBGR095 (re-issue of the 62GS, the first self-winding GS ever). I'm still on the hunt for some key GS vintage pieces, but, so far, that's all, folks! Hope you enjoy it. Current soundtrack: Peter Green's rendition of Robert Johnson's classic "When You Got a Good Friend." 🎧 Good morning from Europe, #WatchFam! β˜•

The Grand Seiko Snowflake (SBGA011), out and about in πŸ‡©πŸ‡°, decided to call in for this #BlueWatchMonday for my dear friend @watches_es. Current soundtrack: Stand Getz and Kenny Barron's rendition of "Night and Day" (recorded live in Copenhagen in 1991). 🎧 Good afternoon, #WatchFam! β˜•οΈ

One from the archives for #SeikoSunday. The Grand Seiko Wako-store only SBGH041, with the exceptional 9S85 Hi-Beat caliber. This particular movement boasts some serious technological chops because, at the end of day, for many reasons, it's very hard to make a power efficient--and accurate--caliber at a vibration rate of 36,000 bph. That's why so few manufacturers do it. Seiko's Spron 530 alloy used in the mainspring is one of the many tricks developed to make the 9S85 a success. The alloy provides stronger force and enhances the torque needed to power the faster-beating escapement while maintaining 55 hours of power reserve. πŸ”₯ Current soundtrack: Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses." A rainy vacation day calls for classic tunes. 🎧 Good afternoon from πŸ‡©πŸ‡° #WatchFam! β˜•οΈ

THE POWER OF SIMPLICITY
Max Bill was one of the most unusual artists of our time. Acknowledged as an universal genius, he worked as an architect, painter, sculptor and product designer and has left behind an extensive portfolio of creations.

This includes one of the most fascinating watch series ever designed – the clocks and wristwatches he created for Junghans – and which remain practically unchanged today.
As a Bauhaus student of Walter Gropius, he intuitively understood how to apply the pursuit of constructive clarity and precise proportions to his work. His unrivalled drive to create is also seen in the field of education.

He was not only the co-founder and first rector of the Ulm College of Design (Hochschule fΓΌr Gestaltung – HfG), but the school building is also a Max Bill original design (text by Junghans)

Going with the vintage Seiko Navigator Timer (6117-6410) on this #BlueWatchMonday for my great friend @watches_es. It had been a long time since I brought this one out of the box. Always a pleasure though. πŸ’™β€οΈ Current soundtrack: Moby's "Harbour" (featuring Sinead O'Conor). 🎧 Good morning, #WatchFam! β˜•οΈ

Showcasing the new Seiko Samurai SRPB55 for this #StrapSaturday. This piece, sadly, is not mine. It belongs to a friend, and I am glad to have had a chance to take a few shots of it. The new Samurai line is indeed pretty cool. Technically, the watch is similar to the Samurai Blue Lagoon, with a 43.8mm angular case powered by the 4R35 movement. But the look is very different, with a blackened steel case, a gorgeous high-relief dial, and beautiful gilt accents. I also dug the silicone strap. It's really soft, and feels pretty comfortable on the wrist. Current soundtrack: AC/DC's "Back in Black." 🎧 Good morning, #WatchFam! β˜•οΈ

Joining my #6WMShootout buddies for this week's challenge, "Watch your Junk Food."

Joining my #Watchfy friends for this week's challenge, "Full Hand." My submission: A handful of Grand Seiko, starting with the GS "first" (3180) with carved dial and mountain hands, followed by the SBGR061 (whose case is a modern interpretation of the 3180) and the SBGW253, the BaselWorld 2017 reissue of the first GS in a slightly large case. Current soundtrack: Bob Dylan's rendition of "Come Rain or Come Shine." 🎧 Good morning, #WatchFam! β˜•οΈ

Joining this week's #Head2HeadCopycat fray, "Branded," with the Grand Seiko 62GS re-issue (SBGR095). Those raised logos are so 😎... Current soundtrack: The Velvet Underground's "Pale Blue Eyes." 🎧 Good afternoon, #WatchFam! β˜•οΈ Also: #GSWednesday

The impossibly beautiful Grand Seiko Wako-store only, Hi-Beat SBGH041 is out having some fun on this #GSWednesday. Current soundtrack: Bob Dylan's rendition of "Young at Heart." 🎧 Good morning, #WatchFam! β˜•οΈ

Some objects are just beautiful... And such is indeed the case with the Grand Seiko Snowflake (SBGA011). Look at the details on those markers and hands, and the reflection of the sweep hand on the "O" in the logo. And the Zaratsu polish on Titanium. I still can't believe they are able to reach that level of polish on Ti. πŸ’™πŸ’š Current soundtrack: Willie Nelson's "Old Timer." 🎧 Good morning, #WatchFam! β˜•οΈ

Seiko Turtle PADI (SRPA21) with a hint of #Flecto for this #BlueWatchMonday. Current soundtrack: Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song." 🎧 Good morning, #WatchFam! 🎧

Grand Seiko 44GS re-issue (SBGW047) and some French rose are a perfect match for this #weekendclosingceremony. Current soundtrack: The Police's "King of Pain." "There is a little black spot in the β˜€οΈtoday." 🎢 Good night, #WatchFam! 🍷
