Even after looking at many of the newer Grand Seikos, I think this is a stand out. The dial, case design, and simple design really pop to me and makes me wonder how come Grand Seiko didn't iterate on something like this with their 36-37mm offering instead of going for sportier design for things...
It's this one:
Pretty sweet paper-y dial that's reminiscent of the snowflake (SBGA211/011)
I hope it's automatic, <38mm, and a decent thickness. The brand seems on trend to shrink (some of) it's watches.
Any one know what...
As the whole world and its watch loving dog knows by now, the Swatch Group has decided to pull out of Baselworld 2019 citing the huge cost of participation versus the low return on investment as its reason for no longer wishing to participate.
The cost to Swatch each year and similar major...
In 1993, Caliber 9F83, the first 9F caliber, was completed. It delivered advances in every aspect. The new limited edition pays proud homage to the 1993 design. Its case and bracelet retain the soft contours of the original. There are, however, stylistic enhancements. In line with...

The longstanding Managing Director of Baselworld, Sylvie Ritter, has decided to step down from her position at the MCH Group. Michel Loris-Melikoff, who has until now held the position of Director of MCH Beaulieu Lausanne SA, will succeed her.
After 15 years, Sylvie Ritter...
As has been widely documented at Baselworld this year, Grand Seiko had two big milestones to celebrate, with the 20th anniversary of the 9S mechanical movements and the 25th anniversary of the 9F quartz movements, so the brand had very good reason to come out swinging – and swing they did, with...
Since Laco didn't join the Inhorgenta, this year's Baselworld became the place to showcase (almost) all 2018 novelties. And there is quite some news to be reported.
All in all, we (Bhanu, Scott, Brad and I) got the impression that Laco is picking up speed, not so much in terms of quality...
Junghans unveiled the Meister Chronoscope Terrassenbau to mark the 100 th anniversary of the architectural masterpiece by Philipp Jakob Manz.
The terrace building in Schramberg is one of the most spectacular industrial buildings worldwide to be built on a hill. The nine-step terrace building...
How much do you know about the world’s biggest watch fair, and how quick are you to learn about the hot new watches on show this year? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to take our Baselworld Brainiac Quiz.
I have been eyeing the new Aqua Terra released last year at Baselworld in blue (the 38mm size).
There aren't many pictures or videos (or reviews) of it out there, so I wanted to see if anyone here owns one and what they think of it (and would possibly share some photos).
One thing that's...
We just wrapped up a few days of the Couture Show at the Wynn Las Vegas, where we had a little more hands-on time to spend with Omega’s 2017 novelties, like the cal. 9900, 44.25mm Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer watches (note the omission of 'Moonwatch' from this watch's titling), as well...
The riveting sequel to the award-winning 2016 nature documentary, The Bhanu , which explores the habits of a Watch Editor and his favorite habitude. This time, our Bhanu has even built a nest to hold all his beautiful, shiny things.
