Ok. Back to #GrandSeiko with something rather special. What’s going on here then?!
If printed at around 1.5 meters wide, you could stick your nose up to the print, and this is the level of detail you’d be able to enjoy. The crown from the #GrandSeiko #5645 -7005. Note how the focus falls off perpendicular to the face of the watch – this is just a single shot (since the watch is running – it’s been my daily beater since it arrived) with no focus stacking, so the depth of field is very shallow indeed.
Case and lug detail from the previous photo. As usual, the focal plane set parallel to the watch face so that even at this level of magnification, the full dial is in focus despite the offset angles that the watch is positioned at relative to the camera. #Seiko #GrandSeiko #5645-7005, manufactured in May 1971.
Another shot of my newly acquired #vintage #GrandSeiko – the #5645-7005. Not a safe queen this one – clearly a well worn and well loved watch. I particularly like this kind of simple composition. It’s all about the watch, and trying to remove all consideration of the camera equipment and photographer completely. A couple of detail crops from this up next.
Manufactured in May 1971 – close to 45 years ago, a #GrandSeiko #5645-7005. My first (of many, I hope!) vintage Grand #Seiko
Fascinating dial texture on this 40+ year old #GrandSeiko
Ok. Let’s turn back the clock a few decades… #GrandSeiko
