The Grand Seiko brand is well known among watch collectors for their ruthless pursuit of the highest quality materials and techniques. Initially the Seiko premium line was only available in the Japanese market.
This Grand Seiko, model SBGW253 pays homage to the original Grand Seiko that was released in 1960. The watch was produced in a limited run of 1960 pieces. An earlier production re-issue model was made using a smaller case but this model is a much more wearable 38mm size.
The watch features a stainless steel case with sapphire crystal and solid steel case back, that features a solid gold Lion logo medallion in relief.
Another feature of the watch is the 24 jewel manual wind, mechanical high beat Grand Seiko movement.
Grand Seiko’s are legendary for the attention to detail and state of the art production techniques , which ensure the highest quality of fit and finish. One look at the dial and case detail of this watch explains it all.
The watch appears unworn and comes with all original boxes, packaging and papers.
