Seiko Watch Replica Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36 000 Edition Spéciale SBGH022 Pink Gold – Crocodile Strap

Grand Seiko reaches new heights with a Special Edition Hi-Beat 36,000 creation.

Re-defining the ‘ideal’ watch

Seiko Watch Replica Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36 000 Edition Spéciale Grand Seiko SBGH022 Pink Gold – Crocodile Strap.Half a century ago, the legend of Grand Seiko was born with the simple idea of creating the ideal watch.  Each Grand Seiko watch should be as accurate, as legible, as durable and as easy to wear as humanly possible.  Nothing more and nothing less.  For more than 50 years, the Grand Seiko’s watchmakers have selected the very finest materials, designed and manufactured cutting edge movements and used traditional craftsmanship to create by hand, watches that are, in their simple sophistication, perfect expressions of all that is essential in a wrist watch.  Today, the performance of Grand Seiko reaches a new height of perfection in a new Special Edition Hi-beat 36,000 timepiece.  This masterpiece is the ultimate expression of the Grand Seiko ideal.

A new standard in mechanical watchmaking

The first Grand Seiko standard was set in 1966, since which time it has been raised as new materials, technologies and mainstream techniques have made possible new advances. Today, the Special Edition Hi-beat 36,000 goes beyond the standard with levels of accuracy that are among the highest in the world.

In recognition of its importance in the pantheon of Grand Seiko creations, this specially adjusted caliber is offered exclusively in 18k gold, with the lion emblem, also in gold, on the oscillating weight. Seiko’s latest hi-beat movement was introduced in 2009 and was made possible by advances in every aspect of the caliber. A new Spron material is used for the mainspring to deliver more torque and a new pallet and wheel increase the efficiency of the escapement. Together, these advances deliver more stable accuracy and a remarkable, industry-leading 55 hour power reserve. The new Special Edition builds on these advances to deliver enhanced precision as well as outstanding power reserve. On all the precision criteria, this specially tuned new piece exceeds the Grand Seiko standard. The enhanced performance of the new Special Edition is entirely the result of the skills of the Master Watchmakers at the Shizukuishi Watch Studio where the watch is created. The adjustment is entrusted to only the very best of the Studio’s most experienced watchmakers who test and select the balance springs individually.

Seiko Watch Replica Grand Seiko 9S anniversaire SBGH265 Platinum case – Black Leather

Grand Seiko watch replica made fake movement

Three special movements, a new case and a unique dial. All to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the the Grand Seiko 9S mechanical caliber.

After the launch of the very first Grand Seiko watch in 1960, the creation of the 9S mechanical caliber in 1998 was perhaps the most important moment in the history of Replica Grand Seiko watch. The 9S caliber was entirely new and designed from scratch to deliver the high precision and excellent durability for which Grand Seiko was renowned. Ever since, the 9S caliber has been continuously enhanced, with new Spron alloys for both the main and balance springs and MEMS engineering, a technique that allows key components to be manufactured to tolerances as small as one thousandth of a millimeter. Today, 9S is the platform on which the entire Grand Seiko suite of mechanical calibers is built and has earned a deserved reputation as one of the world’s finest calibers, thanks to its high precision, long power reserve and robust construction.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this caliber, the Grand Seiko replica watch team has created a series of three limited edition timepieces, each of which, in different ways, pays homage to the high precision that caliber 9S achieves.

A landmark in Grand Seiko’s pursuit of precision, V.F.A., is honored in platinum.

“Very Fine Adjusted” may not be the most evocative name but V.F.A. is a revered set of initials for the Grand Seiko team. First used in 1969, it defined a Grand Seiko watch that was adjusted so skillfully that it achieved a precision rate far in excess of the Grand Seiko Standard. This new 2018 creation proudly carries on the V.F.A. tradition thanks to the extraordinary precision rate of its 9S85 Hi-Beat 36000 caliber, +3 to -1 seconds per day, a level achieved by the highest level of adjustment and a testing program extended to 34 days. The watch is offered in a platinum 950 case which is a new interpretation of the most widely admired Grand Seiko design, created by Nobuhiro Kosugi, the designer of the first 9S watch in 1998.
Two surfaces of Zaratsu polishing extend to the very edge of the lug where these curved surfaces meet the hairline finish to create a perfect triangle that only the most skilled Grand Seiko craftsmen and women can achieve. The dial, too, is exceptional; its design incorporates the special mark that was used to designate the watches made by the team at Daini Seikosha, the company now known as Seiko Instruments Inc., which developed its first Grand Seiko hi-beat watch in 1968, 50 years ago this year. This long-remembered mark alternates with the GS initials in a delicate mosaic that radiates out from the center of the dial in a geometric pattern.

Two additional limited editions celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 9S caliber. The first is in an 18k gold case and the second in stainless steel. Both share the same case design as the V.F.A. creation, the same caliber 9S85 and the same dial design. The gold version, however, is adjusted to the Grand Seiko Special standard and offers a precision rate of +4 to -2 seconds per day. As with the V.F.A. version, the oscillating weight carries the Grand Seiko lion emblem in 18k gold as a symbol of the enhanced accuracy. The stainless steel design also has a special oscillating weight. It is made of titanium and tungsten and the titanium surface is colored blue by an anodic oxidation process.*

All three limited editions are available from March 2018 at selected Grand Seiko retail partners and the Seiko and Grand Seiko boutiques.
* Anodic oxidation treatment
This is a surface treatment in which metals are subjected to electrolysis so as to generate artificially an oxide film. Titanium oxide film produces color according to the light refraction index, enabling production of different colors by varying the thickness of the oxide film.
