The 44GS of 1967 established, once and for all, the “Grand Seiko Style,” a design language centered on the idea of a wristwatch with “sparkle and quality.” The new Ref. SBGH299 presents this classic design in the cutting-edge, anti-corrosive material Ever Brilliant Steel, an alloy with a pitting resistance 1.7 times that of the normal steel typically seen in luxury watches.
The unique design, whose primary feature is a polished, undistorted surface, reverberates with a beautiful radial dial pattern, giving rise to an expressiveness that weaves together light and shadow in an aesthetic sense that the Japanese have appreciated since ancient times.
The movement is the Hi-Beat Caliber 9S85, which beats 10 times per second and grants more stable precision through resistance to interference and maintaining consistent accuracy.
40mm Case size, 46.2mm lug-to-lug and 13.3mm thickness.
9S85 caliber, +5/-3 seconds per day, approximately 55-hour power reserve
Ever-Brilliant Steel, exhibition caseback, screw-down crown, 100M water resistance, 4,800 A/m magnetic resistance.
