A very attractive watch.

I've never been up close and personal with a Grand Seiko, could someone tell me (as a naive newbie) just how different in feel, finish, quality, it is to the kind of Seiko that I have had the pleasure of owning (this was my last one:

Is it like a completely different brand, or is it just a better version of a similar style (apologies for my ignorance!)

I'm sure someone much more knowledgeable will be along in a moment, but my view, based on one GS (entry level) and two modern Seikos (plus one vintage) is they are completely different animals. I always find the GS a complete delight to wear.

It is the longest serving member of my collection, I've had it about 15 years when it cost me just £350.

Its a 1977 birthyear watch and one I will never sell, my eldest boy might after I'm gone!

I have a fair few Seikos of ranging quality and 1 Grand Seiko and it is like a  completely different brand (which it is).  The finishing is the best of all my watches and that includes Rolex with a higher RRP.

Here is mine:

What is the proper name for the bezel Edge on these?

I bought this Seiko Perpetual Calendar (8F32-5010) approx 2-3 years ago as a project (non runner, scratched mineral crystal, scratched case/bracelet) and last week I put a battery in it and set it up.

Yes the case/bracelet is still scratched, I would love to replace the crystal, but I can't find this mineral crystal for love nor money (any help locating one would be hugely appreciated:notworthy:)

A bonny 'little' watch that wears big. 

Have a great day guys!

As far as I know it`s called a coin edge but I`d be interested if there is another name :thumbsup: 

I thought so to, and would refer to it as such, but I recently saw this:

rolex-precision-gold-vintage-wristwatch-

And that makes more sense as coin edge.

I guess the above examples would be "coin edge bezels" in that they have the same coin edge markings, but on the bezel rather than the actual edge/side of the watch?
