Seiko’s Spring Drive

Seiko has been one of my favourite brands of watch to purchase. As a horology enthusiast, I’m more inclined towards a full mechanical/automatic movement traditionally or you can say that I’ve a purist mentality. It’s this mentality that has been stopping me from buying a Seiko Kinetic or even a Spring Drive.

See more of Spring Drive’s workings here.

Recently I’ve been reading up more on Spring Drive and seriously, I’m more and more enticed with the buttery smoothness of the sweeping of the seconds hand. This has slowly corrode my resistance of a mixed movement.

See the video of the smoothness of Spring Drive movement.

Hence, I’m now eyeing on the following Grand Seikos with Spring Drive movement. In a big dilemma now as all looks great to me!

Grand Seiko SBGE011


Grand Seiko SBGE005


Grand Seiko SBGA003

      I actually do my own hosting at home and runs off my internet connection. So I could not suggest a good hosting site unfortunately. My apologies
