...well technically I already own a 9983 which would be a GQ in Japan, but it's called "Twin Quartz" on the dial, so that one does not count...

After a long wait, it finally arrived from Japan:



I also bought a KQ buckle, for future use.



Love the case lines... However, the crystal has had it.

Back side (yes, the battery hatch is put on wrong):


Please excuse the crappy photos - I only have my mobile with me. Couldn't wait until the evening ;)

Edit: Oh, btw - does anybody have a parts list or the crystal number for this watch? Can't find a 9400-8000 on either Seiko Oceania or Jules Borel...

Congrats on your new watch, very beautiful, I love mine. So simple and elegant. You might try polish the crystal, I remember being plastic.

Pretty sure it's going to be glass, based on the part number. Boley shows for 9940-8000: 300WB4GN00 or 300WB4GA00

Be careful, these don't disassemble like traditional friction crystals which simply press out- the bezel/crystal assembly must be first removed, then the crystal separated from the bezel using the correct dies and a press.

Congratulations on a smart looking watch, enjoy!

I heartily agree, this type of crystal construction is not exactly my favorite. I learned the hard way :D

What a Beauty ! I say the 9983 Twin Quartz counts althought I know this one is better for you to stare at with the Grand Quartz printed on the dial.

Crystal is Part Number 300WB4GN00 with silver trim.
