This incredible Grand Seiko, reference SBGJ005, features the hi-beat GMT 9S86 movement, not only is it a beautiful movement to look at through the back, it is also a highly accurate and very smooth GMT. This watch comes from a time before the transition to removing "Seiko" from the dial, it is a point of discussion that often splits people, I personally prefer the look of "Seiko" on the dial but completely understand their reasoning for changing it.
The dial on this watch is to die for, the texture is incredible and it is very difficult to photograph, however it has been captured in it's true nature in a few of the shots. The finishing of the case and hands are also incredible, I think there are not many brands that can compete with Grand Seiko on their finishing, especially for the same price!
Points of Mention
This watch is being sold a used watch and therefore some signs of wear may be seen, but overall it is in very good condition and comes from 1 owner from new. The watch comes complete with it's box, paperwork, hand tags and everything you would get from buying from retail. Watch is running very well.
I have to say, I think the transition to removing "Seiko" from the dial was a good one for the brand, but I do feel that "Seiko" on the dial really balances on the look of the dial but also adds a lot of stealth to this watch! Most people would see the word "Seiko" and think nothing more, however, the ones who know... Will know!
