... and pun caught!
while I own dozens of watches, I have never pulled the trigger on a GS, but it isn’t due to lack of respect. A friend of mine in my watch club owns several which he has brought to offlines.
At a RedBar Group offline I attended there was a PP employee in attendance once. He pulled out his loupe and examined several GS watches. He said he had to admit the finishes for GS had nothing on PP. I have found that GS is a timepiece that never shows as well in photos as they do in person.
Dont undersell GS 's spring drive accuracy. One of the most accurate mechanical watches in the world and certainly for the price range
