Every year for Baselworld, Seiko introduces a new series into their Historical Collection line up. This year, celebrating the 55th Anniversary of Grand Seiko, Seiko brought their first GS Automatic back to life in limited edition form as the SBGR095. The 62GS from 1967 was one of the most accurate mechanical self-winding watches of its time, and the new SBGR095 is no exception.
The other Grand Seiko 62GS modern interpretation in Hi-Beat form is the SBGH037, with distinct silver radial finished dial and blued seconds hand. This LE will be a 1,000 count production for the world, has stainless steel case and features their 9S85 caliber.
The 62GS was the first Grand Seiko to feature a self-winding movement. For the 55th Anniversary of Grand Seiko, they introduced a series deriving its design from the 62GS, and coming in multiple movement types. Today we feature the Grand Seiko 62GS Hi-Beat Limited Edition SBGH039 with a stunning new dial.
For the 55th Anniversary of Grand Seiko, Seiko introduced a new line up in their historical collection commemorating the anniversary of their first self-winding timepiece, the 62GS. This take on the 62GS features their Spring Drive 9R65 caliber, a 40mm titanium case and bracelet, and a unique “box type” sapphire crystal that is basically deeply domed, and pretty much eliminates the bezel.
As our reports continue live from Baselworld 2015, we are proud to introduce you to the next addition to the line up in the new Historical Collection from Grand Seiko. The recreation of the 62GS from 1967 was done in 8 different forms, and commemorates their first self-winding Grand Seiko. Today, we feature the SBGA127 in 40mm high-intensity titanium case and bracelet with a stunning blue dial, that was found on last years SBGA105 Self-Dater LE.
