The new Caliber 9F85 is a robust quartz movement rated to +/-10 seconds a year. This new movement has a function that allows the hour hand to be adjusted independently without stopping the seconds hand, which preserves the movement's high precision and makes this watch a great traveling companion.
Measuring 40mm across, the case of SBGP001 boasts Grand Seiko's modern 44GS design, a contemporary take on the 44GS that first launched in 1967 and formed the cornerstone of the Grand Seiko Style. The modern interpretation of the 44GS is one of Grand Seiko's best known heritage designs today. It features perfect mirror-finished surfaces created using Zaratsu polishing, and it has a highly ergonomic fit on the wrist. Paired with a stainless steel bracelet, SBGP001 is a masterclass in versatility.
The light, silk sun-ray, dial is adorned with multi-faceted indexes and features Grand Seiko's large diamond-cut hands for maximum impact and legibility. A heat-blued second hand adds a subtle splash of color.
