Why is the GMT hand of SBGE201 red? To stand out against the jet black dial? Yes. To differentiate it from the other time of day hands? Yes. But perhaps also it’s to celebrate the magic of the city at night and, in particular, the red lights that gleam from the tops of the skyscrapers as if they were urban lighthouses.
Spring Drive GMT 獻給活躍於世界舞台新世代領航者
採用與機械腕錶相同的發條做為動力來源，配備媲美石英錶等級高精準度的第三類機芯「Spring Drive」，同時配備GMT顯示功能的錶款。滑動於黑色錶盤上的秒針及紅色GMT指針，來自獨家研發的滑動式運針，給人深刻的印象。Grand Seiko史上首次採用的旋轉錶圈，錶圈的環狀部分為雙弧面高質感藍寶石水晶，展現出硬質的透明感、縱深與深度。4點鐘位置的錶冠，是Grand Seiko睽違38年的設計。主要是針對大錶徑的考量，避免干擾劇烈活動時手腕的配戴感。

Sports. Evenings. Anytime. Anywhere.
The sapphire crystal bezel gives this watch a refinement that makes it as suitable for formal occasions as it is for use outdoors. It’s 20 bar water resistant and the Spring Drive movement is resistant to temperature change and shock. Furthermore, it’s ultimately practical; its GMT hand, the 24 hour dial ring and the two way rotating bezel allow you to see the time in up to three time zones at once while the accuracy is maintained even when the zones are adjusted.
A seconds hand that moves in glide motion
Because all the motion within a Spring Drive movement is in one direction, the seconds hand moves in perfect glide motion. Just like time itself, the seconds hand moves continuously and silently with no tick or shudder. Spring Drive expresses the natural flow of time in a uniquely precise and beautiful way. In this GMT Spring Drive watch with caliber 9R66, a second time zone is shown on a 24 hand that is adjusted independently so that the glide motion is never stopped.
How do you make a watch so legible?
The designer of Grand Seiko’s SBGE201 knew that it’s all in the details. See how the tip of the hour hand is exactly the same width as the index so that the exact time can be seen at a glance. Look at how the second hand reaches exactly to the edge of the minute markers for precise reading. And see how the markers at nine and twelve o’clock are different to the rest so that there’s no mistaking the time, even when the watch is at an angle or off the wrist. For Grand Seiko, legibility is an obsession.
