Seiko’s origins date to the 19th century, when in 1881 a young man named Kintaro Hattori opened a shop in central Tokyo where he started repairing and selling watches and clocks. In 1892 he founded the “Seikosha” factory, where he produced his first wall clocks. In December 1924 the first watch to have the “Seiko” name was launched, beginning the pathway of a brilliant brand. But in the 1950s it was common belief that Swiss watches were superior to Japanese, and so a group of Seiko’s watchmakers were brought together to create Grand Seiko, a brand that should be synonymous with innovation, precision, beauty and luxury. Grand Seiko’s first watch was released in 1960 and since then they have been constantly innovating, including in their movements, mechanical and quartz. Today they produce the best luxury quartz watches you can find in the market, with astounding accuracy. As in 1988, when their first quartz watch was launched, Grand Seiko still grows their own quartz crystals in-house, allowing them to have the best performance achievable. Another focus point of Grand Seiko is their renown excellency in producing eye-catching dials, as  wells the famous zaratsu polishing technique which allows to achieve an almost near mirror finish on the polished surfaces. And the best part is that you can get most of these features even in their baseline models.

The timepiece presented is a Grand Seiko SBGV225G, part of the brand’s Heritage Collection and one of the entry points to Grand Seiko’s watches. But this is not “just another basic watch”. The stunning dial shows a petrol green/blue tone that changes as the light plays in its surface, and the sharpness of the hands, hour markers and date window metal frame (at 3 o’clock) really stand out. Protecting this watch’s gorgeous dial is a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on the inner surface, and with a 40mm diameter this is a piece that can easily accommodate most wrists. The case back is engraved with the brand’s famous lion emblem and powering this watch is a caliber 9F82 quartz movement that provides an impressive accuracy of ±10 seconds per year. Complementing the watch is a stainless steel bracelet with a three fold clasp and push button release, engraved with the “GS” symbol. This is a previously-owned watch, revised by an experienced watchmaker, in perfect condition and comes with a Grand Seiko travel case, as shown in the photos.

Whether you want to acquire your first Grand Seiko, or improve your watch collection with a luxury quartz timepiece that can be used daily, this is the perfect piece for you. The photos won’t do it justice, in person you can appreciate its gorgeous dial and other sharp details to a completely new level. Adaptable as a dress watch or for more casual events, this will be a real conversation starter once you lay your eyes on it.
