I swung by a local AD this afternoon and that new green Grand Seiko GMT is great looking in person. Really beautiful watch, the green and orangish yellow look awesome together in the steel. This might have to be a promotion present to myself when that happens.

That's a snazzy look

Grand Seiko’s dials are insane, love the attention to detail.

I have a Mt Iwate dial GMT, and a GMT in this case. Huge fan of both. The dial texture (mine is white) is amazing. The case is a really great size, not cartoonishly large as has been fashionable in recent years (though becoming less so).

Most green dials are tacky imo.

This is a rare exception though, that is definitely a nice looking watch

Yeah and good micros genuinely listen to their customer base as well. My favorite, Zelos, interacts with us on his Facebook group and based off feedback knew people would like a cheaper and smaller version of his cheapest watch the Swordfish. He launched it yesterday and it sold out 1,000 pieces in 8 hours.

Are these watches tough to get? And can you get them at a discount off of retail. Looking at getting a GMT and I like the looks of the SBGM221

The 221 is not tough to get, they had it in stock also. The green one is a limited edition, not sure how limited or how well it’s selling and if it will be gone soon.
I’ve heard a 10% discount is common, but that’s hearsay, I have no experience buying a GS and I didn’t talk pricing on it today.

For anyone wondering this is the Grand Seiko Toge special edition sold only at watches of Switzerland

I was going to say this was wrong, but it’s mostly correct. It’s also available in other jewelers owned by the same parent company, in this case Mayors Jewelers which is a Florida and Georgia chain.

Could use some help with an awkward dynamic.

My Dept has been tapped to help another dept promote a DEI study. The client dept has hired a consultant in this area. The challenges I see with this consultant's work style:

-dominating conversations
-micromanaging things outside her area
-steering things toward her own promotion over our company's agenda
-people in my dept (mostly white) are visibly uncomfortable and reluctant to interrupt or contradict her (black woman)
