Default 72k USD GS

the press kits say this is a conscious decision 5o go further upmarket.

Well, Rolex, AP, et al have been doing it for years so nothing new there but....

You know how you feel when a beloved friend has lost his way and seems to keep turning in the wrong direction ?
"I like what a father said to his son when he gave him a watch that had been handed down through generations. He said "I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire, which will fit your individual needs no better than it did mine or my father's before me, I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you may forget it for a moment now and then and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it." - Dale from The Walking Dead

Exactly. I've always been a Seiko fanboy but I don't think this will raise their standing in the eyes of collectors or anything. It might even do the exact opposite - after all if we're paying that much money most people would still go for the likes of JLC or PP instead. Just my opinion of course.
