Let me be clear - I bought this watch because I just fell in love with it - I really like dress watches and this little manual wind micro machine pushed all my buttons. That face, that case, those hands and facets, and that pretty little movement - what could I realistically buy short of something in Patek Calatrava territory that would make me smile as much?
I enjoy it more and more as time goes by, but Ive been reflecting a lot on just how unique it is in the GS line up - its not a spring drive, a high beat automatic or a high accuracy quartz - all the sophisticated highlights we tend to associate with GS. Yet, it’s simple manual mechanism is adjusted in 6 positions, has a unique in-house design and is very nicely decorated - and therefore it definitely appears to have genuine GS chops!
So, setting aside my obvious affection for this little thing off beauty, is it a unique unicorn worthy of more attention? I certainly think so - and even in New Zealand where retail discounting of GS is virtually impossible to find - I think it’s a bit of a bargain.
What do others think?
