    Yes it does. The heart rate monitor is a good guide for where you're at, but sometimes not accurate.

    I also like the ability to change the clock layout to whatever you want.

    I can't wear fancy watches because I tend to break and scratch stuff with daily use. But a $15 cover helps to keep this watch looking good.

    If I were spending $6700 on a watch I can PROMISE you.... It wouldn't say Seiko on it. I don't care how well engineered it is. First off... no one would know you were wearing a $6700 watch and second, it's a Seiko. That's like spending $2000 on a Timex. What's the use? No one could tell the difference.

    Hell... as much as I want a Breitling I wouldn't spend $6700 on one and you can. They make them and even higher. But the one that I want is expensive enough but more in the ballpark of what I'll spend and once someone sees it the'll know.... it's not a Seiko.

    Just unboxed it. Much to come.
    G shock riseman. 350 bucks seemed like a lot. 7 years later it’s pennies per day.

    That's the way I feel about my Luminox watches. The black one I pictured earlier is over 10 years old and I spent almost $500 on it. The band is beat up and worn because of all the years on the FD but the case, crystal, and watch still look and work perfectly. All I need to do is replace the band on it and it would look like new.

    I like the power to camouflage it so to speak. There are a lot of people that I don’t want knowing I am wearing a $6k watch. When they ask what it is, I can simply say a Seiko. But to those that are in the know, they will appreciate it for what it is. It’s not for everyone, and I am no where near being able to afford one, but I would love to have a GS some day.


    Also, I have heard it said, “Buy a Rolex to impress your friends. Buy a Grand Seiko to impress yourself.”

    That watch may be engineered to the hilt. But it still says Seiko on it. So like someone mentioned earlier, any watch that you can go to Target or Walmart and buy with the same name holds no value to me when it comes to watches. I'm sure the craftsmanship on it is amazing but as long as it says Seiko on it I'd never give it a passing glance. Call me a snob if you like. I am when it comes to watches.

    There is nothing wrong with a G Shock watch because you are buying it for a specific purpose. You know you are most likely going to beat the hell out of it. I'm "personally" not fond of them even though there is nothing wrong with them which is why I tend to choose Luminox watches as I think they are "personally" better looking and will take everything that you can throw at them. But if they ever sell a G Shock for $6 grand (or hell even a Luminox) I'd laugh my ass of at someone that would spend that much on something you can get at Target with the same name.

    If you watched that video I linked about how Breitling watches are made by hand then you know what your paying for. So when I decide to un-ass $3500 on a watch it will be a Breitling which you can't pick up a cheap version at Target.

    Fair point. Much less chance of someone trying to take it from you. But I won't lie... I'd buy a Breitling to impress myself "and" my friends.
