In line with the Grand Seiko 55th Anniversary, Seiko has a beautiful assortment of new limited edition models, outside of the 62GS Historical Collection. The first we would like to introduce is the Grand Seiko Spring Drive GMT Limited Edition SBGE033, with a beautifully done radial finished green dial.
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.
Another new Prospex model being introduced for Seiko’s 50th Anniversary of dive watches will be their infamous Marinemaster Tuna Can 1000m, with 8L35 movement. A first for the US market to see, the SBDX014 will have rose gold accents, a ceramic shroud and extra-strength silicone strap.
In 1965 Seiko created its dive watch to fit the needs of the divers throughout Japan. Around 1968, Seiko introduced the 6159, their first Hi-Beat caliber to be cased in a dive watch with a rate of 36,000 bph. The movement was important in the sense that the high frequency was not only accurate, but also created more stable precision with less effect from shock due to it’s fast motion. For the 50th Anniversary of Seiko’s first diver, Seiko has unleashed a new limited edition 1000m diver, with its first Hi-Beat caliber to be found outside of Grand Seiko since the late 70’s. Today, we introduce you to the SBEX001, the Prospex Marinemaster Professional Limited Edition.
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.
