A new design for a new era
Just as Calibers 9SA5 and 9RA2 make significant and defining statements about the future of Grand Seiko’s technical development, this collection charts a new course for its design. It speaks to the next generation with its confident lines, powerful presence and quiet radiance but also draws on its deep roots in the traditions and culture of Japan.
Its heritage and pedigree are immediately clear. It is true in every way to the principles of the Grand Seiko Style that were defined in 1967 with the celebrated 44GS but translates them anew for the decades to come. Grand Seiko’s hallmark attributes of precision, legibility and beauty are plain to see in every detail but there is a new power and depth in both the shape of the case and the look of the dial. This collection design exudes strength and has a powerful presence yet remains understated and restrained.
It was the determination to excel that brought about the birth of Grand Seiko in 1960. During its development and ever since, the idea that drove the designers and engineers was that Grand Seiko should be the ‘ideal’ watch with standards of precision, durability and beauty that would lead the world.
