Six decades on from the creation of the very first Grand Seiko watch, this landmark design is now commemorated in a re-creation which blends heritage and contemporary innovation. The case shape and the softly curved dial and hands are faithful to the 1960 original, but the case back is now in sapphire, revealing the beautiful finish of the movement. In line with today’s aesthetic, the case diameter has been increased from 35mm to 38mm and a three-fold clasp makes the watch easy to wear. Of course, the latest manufacturing technologies and craftsmanship skills have been employed to give the case, multi-faceted cut indexes and clasp an even richer, more sophisticated feel. The re-creation is offered in three versions, platinum, gold and titanium. All share the Grand Seiko manual winding movement, Caliber 9S64.
