A high-precision hi-beat 36000 with refined design
This model incorporates Caliber 9S86, the high-specification movement that delivers the same accuracy (-5 to +3 seconds a day) and the same power reserve (55 hours) as the core Caliber 9S85, while also offering the GMT function that the international traveler needs to ensure that the accuracy of the time shown is not compromised when the time zone is changed. The GMT hand shows the time in the home time zone.
The exterior design is a modern take on the stunning 'Grand Seiko Style'—the embodiment of the Grand Seiko design philosophy which was first established for the 44GS in 1967—and features a distortion-free, wide mirror surface throughout.
A beautifully delicate and polished finish has been created on the dial, with a 'Mount Iwate pattern', inspired by the many-ridged contours of the Mt. Iwate, the mountain that is visible through the windows of the Shizuku-Ishi Watch Studio where Grand Seiko mechanical watches are made.
Case : Stainless steel
Case back: Stainless steel and sapphire crystal
Glass : High definition dual-curved sapphire crystal Coating : Anti-reflection coating on inner surface Case size : Diameter 40.0mm×Thickness 14.0mm Band : Stainless steel
Movement : Caliber 9S86 Driving system : Automatic Power reserve : Approximately 55 hours Accuracy : +5 to -3 seconds per day (when static)
Note: This accuracy is the result of measuring the loss/gain of the time for seventeen days before the inside movements of the watch are put in the case. The measurement has been done in the factory where temperatures or position of the movements are controlled. When the watch is actually worn, the accuracy should be from -1 second/day to +10 seconds/day (-1 second/day to +8 seconds/day for Cal.9S85, 9S86).
