Grand Seiko 9S Mechanical Automatic SBGR253 Watch Review

Grand Seiko introduced a stunning and stylish new timepiece in 2017. The Grand Seiko SBGR253 is an exclusive, all-silver watch with a 37 mm open stainless steel case. It features a glamorous and stylish black dial with a sunburst finish that adds to the watch's sleekness. The timepiece also includes unique features such as a date indicator at three o'clock. Grand Seiko enhanced the readability of the dial with luminescent hands and indices. This stunning and sophisticated watch is a must-have.

Grand Seiko SBGR253 - Design

The Grand Seiko SBGR253 is a luxury timepiece accessorized with a stainless steel band and a black dial. There is a hidden depth in its architecture that gives the wearer a lot to explore. It has a stunning mix of polished and unpolished stainless steel on both the case and bracelet that make it perfect for a wide range of occasions.

The minute and hour fingers are razor-sharp Seiko sword fingers with brushed front and mirror-polished edges. A discrete, thin needle complements the main two, and the date is displayed at three o'clock with a black backdrop and a pointed, polished body. This timepiece weighs 140g.

Grand Seiko SBGR253 -Components

A two-tone internal flange with a separate 24-hour scale frames the dial. Both the indexes and hands contain Lumibrite, which allows for excellent visibility in low light.

A significant variation of hyperlinks and half hyperlinks are secured by screw-in pins, ensuring leeway for adjustment. The tolerances between hyperlinks and the physical case are incredibly similar, which leads to an excellent match and performance. When turned, the case sides look inky black, so dark they are seemingly devoid of light. In addition, a transparent case back gives a touch of elegance.

Grand Seiko SBGR253 - Display

The SBGR253 is a classic GMT sport watch. It has a central H-M-S and a central 24-hour hand to indicate different time zones. You can push the date forward or backward for the local time. The GMT hand is separate, and traveler settings allow you to change the local time hand individually without impacting the timekeeping by pulling the crown to the first place. It also has a monitor completed by a power reserve indicator from 8 to 9.

Grand Seiko SBGR253 - Movement

This timepiece comes with the improved caliber 9S55 mechanical mechanism. If you flip the watch around you will find Grand Seiko's famous watermark etched in sapphire crystal, offering a glimpse of the caliber 9S65. This caliber has been individually controlled and tested in six positions and at a temperature range of +5/-three sec. It operates at 28,800 vph.

The watch boasts a full 3-day power reserve. It integrates new hairspring technology with an escapement (escape wheel and pallet) developed by Seiko's MEMS technology to reach high accuracy and stability while worn. The exterior exudes a powerful sense of presence and luxury. One will enjoy watching the mechanical action mark time through the transparent case back.

The Grand Seiko Heritage series embraces technological integrity and beauty and provides an impressive range of watches that are ideal for all occasions.
