It looks great, but... Seiko for more than a grand ?
What the benefit of gps on an analogue watch face? What can it possibly do?
Looks very like a Citizen watch. RRP of £2350 was silly, not surprised it's discounted. I reckon if you wait a while it will drop in price a little more.
You can get a high end tag for that price.

I bought a Hamilton auto chrono for not much more than half this amount last month.

Automatically changes time when crossing different time zones. Or you could just twiddle the crown! Nice looking watch beyond my budget.

So pointless.

Not surprised the price has collapsed as its a watch for someone who needs to know what time it is but doesn't know what part of the planet they are in and has lost their phone.

A Seiko is not really a Grand Seiko though

don't see the point of this watch either. let's say it's acheap pointless alternative to an expensive pointless watch.

Ah, but that's a lovely auto diver. No quirks just a miracle of engineering and mechanics.
Must be a joke! Sort it out

Not quite, as it basically is never more than 0.1 seconds out of time as it's based on GPS time which is more or less the same as an atomic clock.

I have radio solar Citizen and it updates nightly in the same way but doesn't always get as good a signal (a number of global radios versus numerous GPS satellites) .

People slate Seiko, but they're some of the best in reality. Lots of other watches use Seiko movements which are seriously robust and decent.
Looks a lot like a casio edifice... Which from my point of view is good. I'd say why spend so much on something that tells the time like any other watch (for all practical purposes). But then why would I spend £100 on a watch when I could get one for a tenner? It's all relative I guess. Nice watch. Too rich for me though
Crazy engineering to produce this amazing piece of tech which I appreciate but does just look like a £100 casio!

Only ones which you wouldn't buy because they look like £100 Casio's and that's my point!
Great looking watch with premium materials and craftsmanship. Thinnest solar GPS watch with heritage. But too expensive for me blood.
This thread sums up UK hot deals. Blah blah pay that for a seiko blah blah. Shows how ignorant and clueless they are when it comes to watches, which is fine, some people aren’t interested. But those who know, or likely to be interested know how seiko is though of in watch circles. Anyone with a taste in higher end watches, will at some point of had or contemplated buying a good seiko.
