Discontinued Grand Seiko Limited Edition 500pz Hi-Beat SBGJ021, mint and full set.
Colours of dial and oscillating weight are not chosen at random, Mount Iwate is what the fine watchmaking people of Seiko see when they look through the windows of the Shizuku-ishi Watch Studio in Japan.
This is the place where mechanical watches of the Grand Seiko collection are being manufactured. In the morning, with the clear sky, the Mount Iwate gets this deep red colour, the inspiration for the dial of this timepiece.
The oscillating weight has a different colour pattern, using blue, purple, orange and yellow. These are the colours that can be seen on Mt.Iwate at the break of dawn.
They managed to get these colours on the weight mass made of titanium and tungsten using an oxidation treatment.
As always case, dial, indexes and hands have a finish that is almost beyond comparison to other watches in this price range.
40mm case that wears very comfortable on the wrist, screw-down crown with GS logo and sapphire crystal.
Grand Seiko calibre 9S86 with Gmt function and power reserve of circa 55 hours.
