Why We Love it

Grand Seiko is the darling of contemporary watch collectors today, and taking even a cursory glance at the design specs — or better yet, an example in the metal — it’s easy to see why.

The artisanal talent that goes into the design and manufacturing process of a GS dial alone is simply stunning. Depending on the angle, the color and composition of a textured Grand Seiko face will look completely different. They’re truly works of art steeped in Japanese tradition - and there’s no doubt that Grand Seiko is responsible for some of the best contemporary watches in the world.

This particular GS is a beautiful GMT from the Heritage Collection, a Reference SBGJ203. Perfectly sized and versatile in its design and use case, this is a perfect dual-time watch for everyday wear. Housed in a 40mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and a polished bezel, it features a glossy black dial with applied indices, a matching ‘dauphine’ handset, outer 24-hour and minute tracks, a date window at 3:00, and a bright red GMT hand.

Ticking away inside is the automatic Grand Seiko Hi-Beat Caliber 9S85 with 37 jewels and 55 hours of power reserve, which is viewable via a sapphire exhibition caseback. Paired to a stainless steel multi-link bracelet with a signed push-button deployant clasp, this beautiful watch is ready to accompany its next owner around the world in high style.

Sure, you could spring for a tried-and-true GMT Master II or similar model — a move we can heartily condone. But if it’s GMT functionality you’re looking for, why not explore a more unique option, such as this beautiful piece from Grand Seiko.

We know you won’t be sorry!

Overall Condition

The case is in outstanding condition overall showing only faint signs of wear from gentle use. Gloss black 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.
