Three special movements, a new case and a unique dial
To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of 9S caliber, the Grand Seiko team has created a series of three limited edition timepieces, each of which pays homage, in its own way, to the remarkable heritage of the 9S caliber.
To mark this 20th anniversary, Grand Seiko’s award-winning designer, Nobuhiro Kosugi, has crafted a new design based on the foundation of his original 1998 Caliber 9S model.
Shaped to create a graceful profile
Built around an elegant yet simple watch face, these new designs exemplify a uniquely Japanese style.
Highly skilled polishing technique adds a tension
Two finely polished lines extend to the very edge of the lug, where these curved surfaces meet the hairline finish. This creates a perfect triangle that can only be achieved by the most skilled Grand Seiko craftsmen and women through the careful use of multi-faceted Zaratsu polishing.
New dial pattern
The dial is exceptional. Its design incorporates the special insignia used back in the 1960’s to designate watches made by Daini Seikosha, the company known today as Seiko Instruments Inc. This long-cherished insignia alternates with the initials “GS” in a delicate mosaic that radiates out from the center of the dial in a geometric pattern.
