This is something you don’t see every day.

Went to the GS AD in Paris, and wow. I fell in love with a few pieces. Seriously considering this…

Isn't "Limited Edition" on a Credor sort of redundant? I'm surely not alone in not expecting to ever see a Credor anything in person, much more a pocket watch. It's something I didn't know they even made.

I like the dial. The case back is ... of that Credor aesthetic that I'm not worthy of appreciating.

If I were you and had the budget I would buy that pocket watch in a heart beat 💯🤩🙌!

·

The pocket watch is gorgeous and unique, hard decision choosing between the two 🤔

·

That Credor pocket watch is just on a different level! That's just ❤ tier.

I actually had my eye on that GMT too at some point, I liked the hi-beat version as well.

That pocket watch is amazing. I'm not one for carrying a pocket watch around, but something like that, I think I could make an exception.

I have seen the GMT before in videos, and a regular poster here has one. I thought it was a cool watch, but just not for me. Then I tried it on. So much better in person and on the wrist, then what you can get out of videos and photos. At least for me.

Lol, I am pretty sure that pocket watch is out of my price range. I didn’t even ask the price.

That credor pocket watch is not a timepiece, its modern art!

Yeah, I get what you mean. It's a lot nicer in person. I just wished the lume just lights up blue instead of green for these particular watches (just to match the blue), but that's just my preference 😅

Had no idea they made pocket watches. Super cool.

@OscarKlosoff I feel like the limited edition is made for "Credor" collectors. They definitely exist out there, and I could imagine them saving for the pocket watch to show off to other Credor collectors. 

Forgot to mention the GMT, looks great! What size are your wrists? Love Grand Seiko GMTs however from the few I tried on (2) they were too large for my wrist.

Amazing!  

Agreed 100% with you.  Based on the specs, some of the GS sports models are to be completely written off.  But, the moment you put it on the wrist, you realize that the specs don't tell the story at all.  That SBGE275 is absolutely amazing!

I have a 7.5 inch wrist, so the side is ok.

Credor = amazing 👏

Both pieces are amazing!

That piece is lovely. But that said, don't think that the few top echelon pieces we see outside of Japan are representative of  Credor. The vast bulk of their collection are rather run-of-the-mill dress watches that start at less than $4,000. Some are nice enough, but most strike me as at best anodyne and bland. Dare I say kitschy? They get expensive mostly because they're precious metal and blinged out. They are not rare or rarified. There's a reason they don't push the brand outside of Japan, and we only see a few of their halo pieces.
