    What Just Came In: Grand Seiko SBGC013



    The new Grand Seiko SBGC013 chronograph just came in! This is a very important Grand Seiko in two ways: it debuts the new 9R96 movement, an improved version of the 9R86, and it’s also the very first Grand Seiko to feature a ceramic bezel. Only 300 of these were made!


    • Limited Edition - 300 pieces - number engraved on caseback
    • Caliber 9R96
    • Spring Drive Chronograph
    • Hand winding capability
    • Power Reserve: approx 72 hours
    • Accuracy: +/-10 seconds per month
    • 50 jewels
    • Dual-curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating
    • Screw down crown
    • See-through screw case back with sapphire crystal
    • 18-karat yellow gold ornament with Grand Seiko emblem on rotor
    • Titanium and 18-karat yellow gold buckle with tri-fold push button release clasp
    • 100M water resistant
    • Case diameter:43.5mm
    • Black Ceramic Bezel
    • High intensity Titanium Case and Bracelet

    Very nice. Good to see a ceramic bezel on a Seiko. Hopefully it won't take too long to filter down to the divers.

    Normally I'd moan that the crown and pushers were larger than I liked but that GS can carry them off. Congratulations on a lovely watch.

    You guys know it's for sale, right? :)

    I agree that I will be interested to see when the divers pick up the ceramic bezels.

    I 'thought' a ceramic bezel and LARGE pushers were too much until I saw one in the flesh.

    Beautiful watch sir, one of my 'targets' in the future along with this:
