Grand Seiko 6245-9000 and 6246-9000

Grand Seiko 62GS. On the left, the 6245-9000, and on the right, the 6246-9000.

These were the first automatic Grand Seikos. The crown at 4 o’clock recessed to highlight the fact that they don’t need manual winding. In fact, unlike the historical re-issues SBGR091-5, they cannot be wound by hand.
Of the regular Grand Seiko cases, the bezel-less one on the 62GS series is by far my favourite. This straight-on shot doesn’t really do it justice to be honest. I need to do a series of “arty” shots at some point in the future!

Although this pair are in really nice condition, I’m always on the lookout for a NOS example…
