There is something about this watch that just sings to me. A 1:1 #macro shot of the case back of the original #GrandSeiko 3180 in Stainless Steel. Note the #Chronometer text on the gold medallion. Regular issues of this model had the text “Grand Seiko”. @eriksstrickland has a great write-up on this watch over on the Grand Seiko watchuseek.com forum.
