For once, I think the repainting dial looks nicer than the original. This is definitely one of a kind for collection... a custom watch in a sense... Yes I know all about use of wording like chronometer and swiss made is a violation of switzerland's law... With so many replicas and self proclaimed chronometers out there..... My one is pretty minor.....

Want a currency that does not depreciate in value? When economy is bad, when inflation rate is high..... This may be another way of safe keeping your money. By investing into watches... of course not every single watches.. It has to maintain or increase in value over a period of time and it has to rotate easily in any market... Rolex, the king of watches as it was known in Asia.... comes as a first choice. It will be wise to go to an established watch dealer to buy one for investment. High grade replica and cross over Rolex are everywhere, it is even quite hard for experts to make a quick conclusion.....

Taiyo means Sun... ever shining, ever bright... full of radiance... Arguable the most beautiful Grand Seiko ever produced during the 1960's till now. The first of second model Grand Seiko made in 1963,1964 only. A total of 81,000 units of Cal.430 and 5722 were produced.
My taiyo was produced in 1963 by SUWA SEIKOSHA. The taiyo is powered by a chronometer (Seiko internal Chronometer declaration) 35 jewels low beat 18,000 bph Cal.430 movement. It is called self-dater because it has quick set date function. Taiyo is the highest quality masterpiece of low beat GS.
