Grand Seiko SBGA129

For Sale! So I bought this #GrandSeiko SBGA129 a few months prior to deciding that I’d be focusing my collection on the historical watches and the modern Wako limited editions. So, sadly it has to go to make way for other things. This was made as a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Japanese Association of Haute Horology in a limited edition of just 369 pieces. If you are interested in purchasing this watch, contact me by DM for details. Detail shots coming later today.

Grand Seiko 5722-9000

After the first #GrandSeiko, with movement 3180, came the 57GS, and a change in the design of the medallion. The lion stayed, indicating a movement that was to chronometer standards, but unlike on the 3180, which had the text “Grand Seiko” above the lion, on these models was just the word “Seiko”. This medallion was used on models using the first two movements in the 57GS series – the 43999 (with the 430 movement), and the 5722-9000 (with the 5722A movement). The same design of medallion was also used later on for the -9000 variants of the 6245 and 6246 models from the 62GS series. Yes. It is a little confusing! #GSWednesday #Seiko

Grand Seiko “First” in Stainless Steel

I appreciate that for most of my followers it’s a little early for #GSWednesday. However, it is already Wednesday in some parts of the world, and I have 6 posts this week and want to spread them out so that I don’t flood your timelines! For this week, I’ll be posting all the major #GrandSeiko medallion variations. Starting off with the unique medallion that is found on the case back of the first Grand #Seiko, but only in the incredibly rare stainless steel variant. It features the all too short lived Grand Seiko lion, with the text “Chronometer” underneath.
