Why We Love it

No one does a classically inspired Swiss watch quite like the Japanese.

That’s right — you heard us. Grand Seiko’s take on fine, midcentury Swiss watchmaking is unparalleled in its execution, attention to detail, and finesse. Combine these aesthetics with Japanese craftsmanship and design philosophy, and you’ve got yourself the formula for one hell of a modern timepiece.

And the SBGA293 from the 2020s is said timepiece. Housed in a 40.2mm stainless steel case with ‘holey lugs,’ a sapphire crystal and exhibition caseback, a signed crown, and a polished bezel, it features a beautiful, textured white dial with applied, stainless steel baton indices, a steel ‘alpha’ handset, an outer, printed minute track, a date window at 3 o’clock, and a power reserve indicator at 7:30. Simple but refined, this is the type of contemporary everyday or dress watch that piques our interest as collectors! 

Powered by the impressive Grand Seiko 9R65 Spring Drive movement with 3 days of power reserve, the SBGA293 comes paired to a signed, black alligator leather strap with a stainless steel pin buckle, and even ships with its factory goodies.

If a classically styled watch with a modern twist is on your radar, then look no further…

You’ve come to the right place — and the right watch!

Overall Condition

The case is in outstanding condition overall showing only faint signs of wear from gentle use. Textured navy blue 'Mt. Iwate' style dial with applied indices is in as-new condition with matching 'dauphine' handset. Signed crown. Sapphire exhibition caseback.

Brand Story

+
The Grand Seiko was created by Taro Tanaka, a young designer whom Seiko had hired right out of school. Inspired by the way Swiss watches “sparkled brilliantly,” Tanaka set out to design a watch with sharp edges, brushed surfaces, and a mirror finish that would rival anything created by the Swiss. In 1960, the first Grand Seiko—Reference 3180—debuted.

Other models of Grand Seiko would follow, coupling those elegant “sparkling” cases with high-grade (often hi-beat) manually-wound or automatic movements. When compared to the no-nonsense tool watches like the 6309 line of divers, the Grand Seiko was worlds away—refined, elegant, and cosmopolitan. Seiko intended the watch to be an answer to dress watches crafted by the Swiss, and at that it certainly did succeed.

Well-regarded in its home country, the Grand Seiko reached a global audience in 2010—and has captivated consumers ever since.
