Feature: The Grand Seikos You NEED For Each Occasion
Although Grand Seiko only started distributing its watches outside its homeland in 2010, its expert watchmakers in Japan have been perfecting their craft since its inception in 1960. Since being introduced to the rest of the world, Grand Seiko has garnered itself a reputation that leaves it in very high regard indeed—one that certainly gives Swiss watchmakers some healthy competition. With that said, here are three luxury watches from Grand Seiko for every occasion … we’ll take one of each!
Grand Seiko Elegance Collection SBGK004
Elegance is quite literally this Grand Seiko’s middle name; take one look at this dress watch and you’ll understand why. It has a simple yet striking black and gold colourway displayed via the black dial—made of lacquer developed with the sap of the urushi trees found under Japan’s Mount Iwate—and crocodile leather strap, as well as the 18k rose gold case. Limited to just 150 pieces, this is an exclusive watch from a much-loved watchmaker—if you want it, you’d better be quick!
Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGC001J
This Grand Seiko is a proud member of the Spring Drive collection, one of the brand’s most renowned lines. With a busy white dial—thanks to its chronograph—featuring three sub dials, a power reserve indicator and a date window, this is a function-packed timepiece. The steel case and bracelet give this watch an understated look, while the trio of pushers only add to the sporty appeal, making it the perfect piece for the go-getters out there.
Grand Seiko Sport Collection SBGA229
On first impressions, you might think this Grand Seiko is built for diving and you wouldn’t be wrong. With a classic rotating bezel and easy-to-read black dial with white hour markers and hands fit with a luminescent coating that’s crucial for viewing at the dark depths of the ocean—this is a fine tool watch from Japan’s number one watch brand. Other functions include a date window and power reserve indicator at eight o’clock—handy for divers who rely on their watch whilst submerged in deep water.
