May 09, 2023 2 min read

Grand Seiko is a watch brand that is renowned for its attention to detail and the pursuit of perfection. One of their exceptional timepieces is the Grand Seiko SBGH311, a limited edition of 1,200 pieces paying homage to the 25th anniversary of the 9S caliber.

The Grand Seiko SBGH311 is a high-end automatic watch that is a perfect example of Japanese craftsmanship. The watch features a 37mm stainless steel case, which is water-resistant up to 100m and magnetic resistance of 4,800 A/m. The dial beautifully encapsulates the cloud of seas that cover Mt Iwate at daybreak, with a new silvery dial pattern, almost iridescent. The diamond cut minute and hour hands and markers along with the tempered second hand makes this watch exceptionally legible.

The watch is powered by the Caliber 9S85 movement, which has a power reserve of up to 70 hours and a high accuracy of +5/-3 seconds per day. The movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case back, which showcases the exquisite finishing and attention to detail that Grand Seiko is famous for. Additionally, blue titanium oscillating weight has undergone a anodic oxidation treatment to give it's hue.

The Grand Seiko SBGH311 is 13.3mm thick, 44.6 lug-to-lug and features a stainless steel bracelet with a three-fold clasp. The smaller case size is a nod to the original 9S caliber Grand Seiko's released in 1998. Overall, the Grand Seiko SBGH311 is a watch that embodies the Japanese philosophy of "kaizen," which means continuous improvement. Grand Seiko has taken a classic design and refined it to perfection, creating a timepiece that is both beautiful and functional. If you are looking for a watch that has a timeless appeal and exceptional quality, then the Grand Seiko SBGH311 is definitely worth considering. This watch is available at Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Wisconsin's only Grand Seiko dealer.
