I haven’t been excited about a new release in awhile, hence the radio silence on my end, until this recent release from Grand Seiko. Unveiled quietly, the world now has a Grand Seiko tool watch in a reasonable size. Featuring a ceramic rotating bezel, GMT function that is linked to the date display, and Seiko’s famed Spring Drive movement, all put within a 40.5mm case, this seems to be what a lot of people were waiting for. The Grand Seiko Spring Drive GMT 40.5mm has been released in three color ways; green, blue, and black.
Personally, I’m partial to the black, maintaining a classic sports watch aesthetic. That being said, I also enjoy the blue and green. Based on the online images, while the dials have a sunburst effect, the color ways seem slightly muted, making them all suitable for daily duty, should you be feeling a little bold with your color choices.
