What is it? It’s a Grand Seiko. Remember how the world reacted to the Nikon SP and the S2? Or the now legendary Nikonos?

Perspectives. Value. 1st look at watches from $100,000USD to $1,000,000 USD. Patek vs Lange vs Greubel Forsey. http://bernardcheong.com/general/perspectives/ http://bernardcheong.com/general/perspectives/#comments Wed, 03 May 2017 06:47:34 +0000 http://bernardcheong.com/?p=6003 Perspectives. Value. These are CREATED by culture, we must respect the media. TRUMP is wrong to slay the media who actually created him. People see Lange and Patek.
