The Grayton is a great choice for someone that wants an automatic watch without the uncertainty associated with using a movement from an unknown or less reputable manufacturer. The Seiko NH35A is a great movement that does the Grayton justice. The watch looks good and is comfortable to wear. It’s got the right stuff to be a good watch.
This not-exactly inexpensive quartz is made of the right stuff, with rose gold and sapphire giving it good looks and great durability. The Ronda 704 quartz movement isn’t commonly found on watches released from microbrands, either. It competes directly with the Corniche Heritage 40, and in my opinion, it gives the Corniche a solid run for its money. The JR001R is a well styled, well made dress watch with little in the way of drawbacks.
I really enjoy this watch in every objective and subjective way. I think it’s beautiful to look at, and I love how well incorporated the big date and dual time complications are. I also love the domed crystal, which is easily my favorite part of the watch. If you’ve got $300 to spend on a new watch, have a look at this one.
