Why We Love it

There’s no doubt that Grand Seiko is responsible for some of the best contemporary watches in the world.

With their stunning craftsmanship, in-house movement technology, creative sense of aesthetics, and eye for detail, the high-end spinoff of Japanese powerhouse Seiko is keeping the Swiss on their toes. Whether it’s a simple, time-only dress watch, a complicated GMT, or a constant-force tourbillon, Grand Seiko’s wares are some of the finest in any class.

This particular Grand Seiko, a Reference SBGK005 debuted in circa 2019 and is housed in a svelte 39mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and a polished bezel. It features a striking, and stunning ‘Mt. Iwate’ textured dial with applied indices, a matching Dauphine handset, a power reserve indicator at 3:00, and a running seconds subdial at 9:00.

Powered by the manually wound Grand Seiko Caliber 9S63 — which, by the way, is regulated beyond Swiss COSC standards of the Swiss — it comes paired to a signed, blue crocodile strap with a signed stainless steel pin buckle. In fantastic condition overall, it even includes its factory goodies.

This is the type of small-batch — albeit accessible — watchmaking that we here at Analog:Shift can get excited about. But don’t just take our word for it.

Try this one on for yourself!

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.
