Grand Seiko SBGR305

Grand Seiko’s finally free of Seiko’s apron strings. The brand announced this year that Grand Seiko will no longer be a sub-brand under its umbrella, but an autonomous brand. Celebrating this new status is the Grand Seiko SBGR305, a contemporary interpretation of the first Grand Seiko from 1960 that gives a peek into the line’s future direction. Powered by the new automatic calibre 9S68, the watch has a 72-hour power reserve and a large date at three o’clock. The movement can be admired through the exhibition case back, where in older Grand Seikos the practice was to have a closed engraved case back. Protecting it all is a case in Brilliant Hard Titanium, Seiko’s proprietary alloy with the lightness of titanium but double the hardness of stainless steel, polished to a high shine with the zaratsu technique Seiko is renowned for, and in a bigger, more modern 40.5mm size. Only 968 pieces will be made available worldwide.
