Not to my taste. But I appreciate the workmanship. You have to be a person who realizes the exquisite workmanship that is not visible to the eye. That knowledge itself is valuable to the right person.

Unlike most of you gentlemen im not a watch expert but I have worked in the luxury car market for a while now. Reminds me of Lexus releasing the LFA a few years ago. Beautiful vehicle but at almost half a mill most people would much rather go for a Ferrari or Lamborghini. I think thats the dilemma for anyone who is thinking about spending that much on a "Seiko".

Many people outside these virtual walls (here and other forums) actually just buy what they like, and don’t have a crisis of conscious over the name on the dial!
As for your Lexus analogy – it mattered not what “most” people would’ve rathered, since they sold every one they produced, and probably could’ve sold more if they really wanted to milk it for all it was worth.

Love the watch, but just changing metal content doesn't justify the price. IMO
Still, 53 jewel and super nice.

This watch has several properties (the case material not being one of them), which are unique to this Grand Seiko model.
You need to increase your knowledge of current Grand Seikos to appreciate why your conclusion is incorrectly drawn.

While its price is a bit steep, Grand Seiko (as a brand) should be handled in person to be fully appreciated and I'm sure that this one in platinum is really something awesome.

IMHO, Grand Seiko produces truly wonderful watches, with awesome fit and finish and cutting-edge Spring Drive and HEQ quartz movements.

Beautiful watch, but I could find many other ways to spend 55k....

Gorgeous watch. Again GS overpriced their watch, and this price has fallen into their top of the line Credor range.
