If you talk about sport models, no luck is a norm . As for the rest of non popular, it's a piece a cake bro.

Keep looking, and impulse buy is require for purchasing. Don’t settle for second choice when you know you will be regretting in near future.

In terms of price retention or appreciation, Rolex is a clear winner. However I’m always still drawn by the level of quality in a GS.

Will most likely end up owning both sometime in my life.

While I also agree with you all about eventually owning both brands, I would also like to share with you my experience. When I wear the GS, I tend to be more aware of my wrist, very afraid of banging my watch against something as I don’t treat it like a watch, it’s more like a work of art. The Rolex on the other hand, gets worn with abandon, without a care in the world. It gets scratched and stuff and I really don’t care. Weird isn’t it?

Depends on your budget but I'll go for the Rolex any day of the week.

GS spring drive anytime, beautiful movement. I'll only go for Rolex if only it is a GMT, Sub or daytona. Others, i will only buy because it is Rolex on very good deal, not something nice to MY eyes.

You can't go wrong with a Rolex with it's heritage, built quality and robustness also with a wide range of models to choose from, then of course depending on your budget.
As for GS, the snowflake is really nice, gaining quite a bit of popularity in the recent years, couple with the spring drive movement and refinement in the built quality, that is a watch to go for after the Rolex.  ;D

Mercedes or Lexus? Without doubt the Mercedes reputation is better but the fans of both camps can really argue out their support.

The Lexus is a great car, probably with features that can easily beat Mercedes and far better than it's Toyota sibling but it's genes are still Toyota.

The Spring drive movement should have been kept to the lower level range of watches with it's electronics inside and just build Grand Seiko with fully automatic movements. Mixing up hi-beat movements with Spring Drive just dilutes the desirability.
