    SBGX273 - any first hand experience

    I stumbled across this model on the GS Japan website (https://www.grand-seiko.com/jp-ja/collections/sbgx273). I was trying to figure out mark up by country AD and checking the JPY prices when I saw this. Did not get a hit on these forums when I searched this model number.
    Anybody has seen this (it seems to be available in Korea as well, maybe some other selected markets) in person?

    Maybe it’s only available in Asia. Maybe it’s brand new and still needs to gain traction. Personally not to my liking.

    This looks like my SBGX261 https://www.grand-seiko.com/global-e...tions/sbgx261g just with a different color dial. If you have any questions let me know.

    Cheers.

    The SBGX273 for me resemblances are more affordable brown vacheron constatin overseas



    SBGX073

    Not sure if the SBGX273 might be too 'simple' in real life. there are hardly any wristshots out there.

    It does, with some small changes on the dial. I was more interested on how the brown dial changes in light. The 261 is inky black to grey as I have seen. Shades of brown might be interesting.

    Yeah, and an entry level. If only there were more pics and validations, it is not a new model either.

    Definitively. The black is just that, black, there is not much variation going on. The “busier” design looks very attractive to me in your example. I like it.
