To celebrate 55th anniversary of Grand Seiko,Seiko unveiled a limited edition watch which called the Grand Seiko 55th Anniversary Spring Drive Chronograph Limited Edition.The watch just limiteds to 400 pieces.
Grand Seiko’s signature color is a deep blue which sets the tone for this Limited Edition. The chronograph hands are in gold tone, creating a strong and elegant contrast with the blue dial and giving high legibility to the stopwatch function.
This is the first ever Grand Seiko watch to use a ceramic bezel. The deep black ceramic on the bezel gives the watch a crisp and refined appearance. Ceramic is seven times harder on the Vickers Scale and 25% lighter than stainless steel, and scratch resistant. Its surface is specially polished to the highest possible level to create a long-lasting and super-flat mirror finish.
This Limited Edition houses the unique Spring Drive movement, specially tuned for enhanced accuracy. The crystal oscillators are selected individually with time and care, realizing an accuracy of +/- 0.5 seconds a day. A lion emblem in 18K yellow gold graces the oscillating weight to symbolize the enhanced accuracy.
We have a lot of respect for Grand Seiko timepieces and we think this piece represents value for money with its build quality, great movement and overall level of finishing.
