Grand Seiko’s venture started during the 1950s. The best and most splendid watchmakers working for the brand joined along with a grandiose objective: They set out to make the company’s best watch yet. In December 1960 the debut Grand Seiko hit the market. It was the main portion of a story that has now arrived at its 60th year. Driving the festivals is the Grand Seiko SBGH281.
To praise this achievement, Grand Seiko is delivering four new models. We’re going to investigate the three watches delivered for men in this article, and circle back to the ladies’ piece one week from now (so return for that update too). These watches don’t simply mark this critical birthday, yet in addition look towards the brand’s future. As worldwide acknowledgment of the brand keeps on developing, Japan’s driving watchmaker is resolved to planning evermore pertinent watches for today’s fans of Haute Horlogerie.
Lustrous dials in Grand Seiko’s signature blue embellish each of the three pieces. The anniversary (60 years) is especially huge considering the number 60’s patent importance to watches as a rule. For consistently and minute followed by the dial, one year of Grand Seiko’s presence has now passed. I regularly locate this sort of delivery support somewhat intense to swallow, however there’s a satisfying importance in this press point that made me grin so I thought I’d incorporate it here.
The Grand Seiko SBGH281 is, as far as I might be concerned, the superstar. In light of the highly-respected 44GS from 1967, the set up automatic Caliber 9S85 Grand Seiko Heritage Collection Hi-Beat 36,000 Limited Edition watch. It has an exactness rating of +5/ – 3 seconds of the day when static. A 55-hour power hold and protection from attractive fields of up to 4,800 A/m give this development better than expected specs.

Once more, water-opposition down to 100 meters is ensured. A sharp ebb and flow of the case was added to get and mirror all the more light, bringing about a gem like appearance on the wrist. The Grand Seiko Heritage Collection Quartz Limited Edition SBGP007 will be accessible in March 2020. This model will be restricted to 2,500 pieces and available at €3,900.
The Sport Collection welcomes the new 40mm wide, 12.4mm tempered steel reference SBGP015. A blue ceramic bezel crowns the case. While this beautiful outer component may not be for everybody, it unquestionably adds a scramble of dynamism to procedures. This gives the general bundle an extremely energetic vibe. While the Grand Seiko Grand Seiko SBGH281 and SBGP007 models offer attractive obstruction of up to 4,800 A/m and water protection from 100 meters, reference SBGP015 is water-impervious to a consoling 200 meters and fit for withstanding attractive impedance up to an amazing 16,000 A/m, thanks in huge part to its additional heft.
One slight variety as far as time-keeping assumptions is that the reference SBGP015 is exact to ±10 seconds of the year (at temperatures somewhere in the range of 5°C and 35°C. This is in spite of it using a similar type as reference SBGP007.
