Description

The Grand Seiko Elegance GMT SBGM221 is a beautiful example of the famed craftsmanship that Grand Seiko is known for. Every detail, from the zaratsu polishing, the intricate hour markers on the dial, and the showcase sapphire display of the movement, make the GMT SBGM221 an excellent example of Grand Seiko’s exemplary build and design quality.

The History:

In 1960, a specialized group of craftsman set out to design and create an in-house movement for Seiko, that resulted in the Calibre 3180. This movement became the foundation for a new line of Seiko timepieces that would become the Grand Seiko. The pursuit was to create the “ideal watch” in every way, from precision, legibility, and beauty. Having conquered the movement, the designers next set out to create a case and finish that modeled their idea of beauty, which included the use of zaratsu polishing. This polishing process creates a mirror-like quality to the case finish, as well as the hands and indices, that give the Grand Seiko its distinct appearance.

The Watch:

The Grand Seiko Elegance GMT SBGM221 is a stainless steel 39.5mm case with a sapphire crystal display back, that showcases the Grand Seiko Calibre 9S66 movement with a 72-hour power reserve. The dial is a glossy ivory, with rectangular, faceted hour markers, and zaratsu polished hour and minute hands. The 24-hour GMT hand has been heat-treated blued, instead of painted.

The Details:

This Grand Seiko Elegance GMT SBGM221 is in excellent condition. It has minimal wear marks on the case, the crystal is scratch-free, and the original leather strap with stainless steel Grand Seiko deployant clasp is in very good condition. This set comes with both inner and outer boxes, as well as the original tag, Grand Seiko inspection certificate, operating manual, and certificate of guarantee.
