Grand Seiko - “I got into watches mainly because I was interested in the wonder of mechanical timekeeping. And mechanical watches are still the most fascinating to me. But there’s something about a finely made quartz movement that attracts me as well. Inside this GS is the 9F caliber. It’s not your average quartz movement. The 9F features a special, seiko grown quartz crystal and is accurate to 10 seconds a year. Most quartz watches are accurate to 15 seconds per month. And then there’s the design. Love it.” - Grand Seiko pushing the edge on all fronts! Great insight and knowledge from u/YoureTerric on r/watches.
