Beautiful model! Really really nice. I think this model has gone really under-appreciated. Not to worry, when they're all gone it'll be worth more than what you bought it for - Just like the SBGW047 :-!

Congratulations, dwk100, that is a mighty fine acquisition.

I will not thank you for showing it here, though ...... I had just put this one out of my head & mind, now I'm looking up retailers, prices, ......

I'm going to do a review of this piece when GS ships Topper another one. The finish and burst pattern of the dial are spectacular. Does anyone have a 67 44GS of which they can can post a wrist shot?

Capital choice Sir :)
Pls tell us more about the dial?
I haven't seen any pictures that do the dial justice, including my own. The dial is silver, with a subtle sunburst. You would think, with a silver dial, silver hands, silver indices and highly polished case, it could cause some legibility issues, but that's not the case at all. The hands an the indices reflect light very differently than the dial, making it very easy to read the time. I was looking at it in the sunlight through a window earlier today, and was amazed that the reflection inside the room showed each indice distinctly. The sword hands also reflect light very nicely at any angle, making it easy to read even in low light conditions.

Hi Dave,

Did you go to Jura?
Are they still reluctant to discuss discounts?

Cheers.
Toshk

As a reminder we only discuss retail here.

Our next review which should be up here in a day or two is on the Limited Edition SBGC013. After that, we should have our next 62GS back in the store and we will do our best to photograph that dial. As you point out, it's nature will definitely make it a challenge!

This is the Grand Seiko I lust after. I fear by the time I have saved enough to afford it, it will have sold out. Absolute beauty. Enjoy and wear it in great health.
