Excellent service. Excellent quality. Will buy again!

Explorer Case 39mm

I’ve been eyeing this case and bracelet setup for my next build. I ordered it and it arrived within a few days to the United States. The case is beautiful and the finish’s DN polish is superb!! I test fit the bracelet as well as an aftermarket leather strap, both fit flawlessly (now I am in a dilemma over which to use for the build). I also ordered a set of the Blue Polished Pilot hands and the quality/finish rival the case. They are going to pair well. I will definitely be ordering again for any future builds!

Superb Case/Build

A Nice Alternative to the GS, with a Rolex design line…
Expressive dial. Matches well with the explorer case. If you’re on the fence on a Grand Seiko, an LA is a good option.

My first build

This was my first build. Shipping was super fast and the case/bracelet even comes in its own nice packaging. The case and bracelet look and fit great on my 7 3/4” wrist. Bracelet is solid with nice tight fitting end links. Definitely what I was hoping for and I will definitely be but here again.

Absolutely brilliant

Quality and details are decent. Bracelet fitment and solid end links are awesome. Clasps are a bit crafty but not a big problem. 39mm and 36mm
