THE JAPANESE EXCELLENCE

It is on a perfectly polished surface that the play of shadows and light is best expressed, creating a subtle harmony. An interaction that is found in the traditional Japanese sliding door Shoji, in the translucency of the screens, in the finesse of the Japanese fans.

 

This classic GMT watch combines the style that has long captivated watch lovers with an evolved Caliber 9S66 movement. The watch has a 3-day power reserve and combines the latest in hairspring technology with an escapement developed through MEMS technology to achieve high accuracy and stability when worn.

 

The design embodies a pure classical elegance with a box-shaped sapphire crystal, Zaratsu polished lugs, a brown leather strap, and a blue steel 24-hour hand complementing a deep ivory dial. 

The delicacy, strength and beauty of the movement can be enjoyed the exhibition case back.

 

  • THE AUTOMATIC 3-DAY POWER RESERVE GMT CALIBER 9S66

 

THE Caliber 9S66 has all the performance of the most standard automatic movement of the 9S mechanical models — Caliber 9S65 — but comes with the addition of the GMT function.

 

Pulling the crown out by one notch enables the hour hand to be adjusted without stopping the second hand so that the highly accurate timekeeping delivered by the Hi-Beat 36000 is not lost.

The watch is the embodiment of the Grand Seiko pursuit of high accuracy, maintaining exceptional precision in both the essential time display and the GMT function.

Who's who

HEART AND SOUL OF A REAL MANUFACTURE

 

To obtain the title of a real Watchmaking Manufacture , a watchmaking company must be able to manufacture and perfect itself, down to the smallest detail, all its components, from the designs of the movement to the polishing, until their final assembly.

 

Grand Seiko is a real Manufacture. They design, manufacture and assemble, with their master watchmakers in their own workshops in Japan, all the pieces of every single watches.

 

 The beauty of a timepiece lies above all in the precision of its manufacture. Precision of the order of a thousandth of a millimeter, and a millionth of a gram for each of our components.

 

Over the years, we continue to grow while adopting our own approach to watchmaking.

 

Through rigorous work and unwavering dedication, we have been able to achieve revolutionary innovations, such as the Spring Drive movement. Our constant commitment has also earned us pioneers in the field of the Quartz watch, and achieve the highest aesthetic finesse through unique techniques, such as Zaratsu polishing.

 

 

PRECISION : THE INITIAL OBJECTIVE

 

The first Grand Seiko was unveiled in the world on December 18, 1960. This is the first model on which appears the brand Grand Seiko, positioned under the index of 12 hours.

 

This engraving marks the beginning of a long history, punctuated by innovations, pushing back all the limits previously established in terms of precision, thus pursuing the quest for the perfect watch.

 

By the end of the 1960s, Grand Seiko mechanical watches already had exceptional precision. A precision such as during the prestigious competition organized by the Geneva Observatory in 1968, our tempers are among the 7 best mechanical movements.

 

 

THREE MOVEMENTS

 

For Grand Seiko, time is measured at the rate of 3 types of movement: mechanical, quartz and Spring Drive.

 

The excellent of Grand Seiko begins with the choice of raw materials. The combined talents of our elite master craftsmen, coupled with state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, ensure that each timepiece is kept operating at a level of perfection.

 

Corollary of this high technological precision, the Grand Seiko style is defined by a timeless refinement, whose secret lies in an elegant and refined aesthetic.

 

 

JAPANESE AESTHETICS: THE SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

 

Fans. Screens. Wood panels and rice paper ...

In Japan, land of contrasts, an infinity of shades separate the shadow of light. According to Zen philosophy, the shadow is as important as the light, because only the shadow allows the light to express itself.

 

A simple form composed of a flat part and a curve, allows to reflect the light and to reveal infinite expressions.

The Grand Seiko style is based on this Japanese sense of aesthetics. A natural sophistication, inspired by the act of observation and appreciation of nature.

 

 

WHEN ELEGANCE AND FUNCTIONALITY GET PERFECTLY 

 

Each case is designed to reflect the smallest ray of light. Each facet is polished by hand, giving it this mirror-polished look.

 

A clear, harmonious, unique aesthetic, which tells you that you have before you a Seiko Grand, attractive, pleasant to wear, perfect readability, and practical par excellence.
