'Winters' Early Arrival, And No Complaints!!..

Post by thunder1 » Tue Jun 29, 2021 1:58 pm

After very little deliberation, I jumped on what I considered to be a 'good deal' on a Grand Seiko SBGA415 'Winter'..the original owner was disappointed with it and let it go for a sizable discount from retail(and no sales tax!!)..some of the stickers were still in place, as he hadn't even worn it..

Basically, it's a 40.5mm Spring Drive housed in titanium(as well as the bracelet/clasp)..the 9R65 movement has a 72 hr. power reserve and s/b accurate in the realm of +-15 seconds per month..

The big selling point of this baby is its' nicely textured grey colored dial..supposedly inspired by Japan's snow filled winter skies, I will say that it's overall appearance is a little more 'subdued' in comparison to it's 'Spring' stablemate(from the pics that I've seen of both together)..here's a couple of quick pics that I've taken of it..

It also makes for an interesting comparison to my GS SBGA387..aside from the difference in dial color, the SBGA387 has a bezel and the case & bracelet are constructed from SS..also, the case construction is slightly different..here's a pic of them side by side..

Now, if only the 'birch' GS can be found at a good price point!!..

Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...

Sweet, Jeebus!

Your GS collection continues to grow and impress. The pink dial Japan Seasons is my fave but I would gladly wear them all.
