Incoming blue peacock

After alot of enabling on Instagram and here (thanks to Benlee), I hunted the SBGJ235 (blue peacock). Couldn't find it outside Japan (Japan boutique exclusive). Luckily I found a friend spending holidays in Tokyo and he was kind enough to pick one for me. So happy with it. Excuse my poor photography skills.

I know, I guess the nick name blue peacock came due to the fact that it replaces the old greenish peacock. Amazing dial nonetheless.

Thank you all for the praising comments

I have much to learn

Even when comparing photos of the two watches, I still can't tell the difference!

Stunning looking watch, congratulations to the OP on acquiring it.

I am leaning more and more towards getting a GS.
The only issue is which ONE!!

Thank you. GS watches are amazing. You can't go wrong with any of them. My top 3 are: the snow flake, the autumn edition (red dial) sbgh269 and the Mt iwate GMT (this incoming). The 4 seasons collection are incredible but I haven't seen any of them in metal that is why I didn't include in the top 3
