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.
Citizen introduced their first analog timepiece utilizing satellite timekeeping back in 2011, which was the first of it’s kind. In the last four years, the technology has continued to evolve. Their next major breakthrough on the use of satellite controlled time keeping was expressed for the first time at Baselworld 2014 and labeled the Citizen Eco-Drive Satellite Wave F100. The model featured is CC2006-61E.
The creative and extremely talented watchmaker Martin Braun, now CEO of Antoine Martin SA, debuted an incredibly unique and inventive caliber back in 2013. This caliber was the first to introduce a true slow running rate (hence the name) of only 7,200 beats per hour, or 1 hertz. This movement was designed to take a slower, stable pace, which is meant to reflect “slowing down the passage of time”. This in-house AM36.001 hand-wound caliber has taken a new outlook on mechanical watchmaking with a unique outlook on how to express and enjoy time.
