THE JAPANESE EXCELLENCE

A CLASSIC AND ELEGANT 3-DAY AUTOMATIC WATCH
 

This watch expresses the classic style of models with mechanical Caliber 9S67 movements, preserving the design in every way while excluding the power reserve indicator and packing a Caliber 9S65 movement, instead.

 

The watch has a 3-day power reserve and combines the latest in hairspring technology with an escapement developed through the MEMS technology to achieve high accuracy and stability when worn.

 

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

 

 

THE 9S65 CALIBER : AUTOMATIC 3-DAY POWER RESERVE

 

Caliber 9S65 is the most standard automatic movement that typifies the 9S mechanical series. The old and new movements may appear to have a similar design, but they are utterly different in terms of performance.

 

Grand Seiko has not only revised the materials used to make this movement, but also applied MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) technology, which utilizes semi-conductor manufacturing technology, to the production of the watch parts. Grand Seiko has significantly enhanced the basic performance of this timepiece, and has also redesigned the way in which the oscillating weight winds the mainspring.

 

The winding system of its predecessor, Caliber 9S55, used Grand Seiko's Magic Lever mechanism. By contrast, Caliber 9S65 uses reverser gear train system. Hardening the components has helped improve the durability of the reverser system, which had been a weakness.

 

 

WHAT MAKES THE 9S MECHANICAL SPECIAL ?

 

The concept of Grand Seiko was born from the desire to build the world's best watch, and the collection continues to push precision in mechanical watches to the limits of timekeeping technology.

 

As a true manufacture, Grand Seiko incorporates the latest technology alongside its breadth of craftsmanship to raise the art of watchmaking to its peak.

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.
