Last year marked a memorable day in the record books when Casio introduced one of their most expensive timepieces to the US market, bringing the MT-G Metal Twisted G-Shock to this country. This year, a new technology was brought forth with their GPW1000 series, featuring not only radio control, but also GPS timing information to make for the ultimate in accuracy. Today, we introduce a merger of these two revolutionary pieces introduced in a variation of G-Shock typically only sold in Japan as their most premium G. The MRG-G1000, known as the MR-G GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor has officially been introduced to market, with an unbelievable metal construction, the durability G-Shock is renowned for, and the impressive technology of GPS and Multi Band 6, all powered by light.
For 2015, Seiko is introducing at least 3 new models of the Seiko Astron GPS Solar Chronographs to the line up. The first addition we have seen is the titanium SSE025, with rose gold accents for the hands, indexes, crown and pushers accompanied by a brown crocodile strap with 3 fold deployment clasp and Seiko’s Diashield coating on the titanium for added scratch resistance. MSRP is set at $2,550.
A new Baby Tuna has been added to the core line up of Seiko’s newly globally launched Prospex series! The SRP637 is the featured model today, but there will actually be two styles to choose from. The SRP637 is a stainless steel case, bracelet and shroud that measures out at 46.5mm wide. The piece has a 60 minute uni-directional rotating bezel.’
2014 has gone and passed and the new year is here. 2015 marks many anniversaries for Seiko as a whole, but most importantly, celebrates the 55th Anniversary of Grand Seiko when it released the 3180, the very first Grand Seiko model! After 5 years of selling GS in the United States, we can proudly say that Seiko’s global launch of Grand Seiko has been a tremendous success, with avid collectors of every sort proudly adding Grand Seiko’s to their collection, and most expanding it every year. There is going to be a lot to look forward to this year, and you can be sure that we’ll see some Grand Seiko Limited Edition models for this 55th Anniversary.
