Grand Seiko SBGH271 Rikka Special Edition
Rikka: Early SummerAs spring passes to summer, the land turns lush and green. A refreshing summer zephyr blows over waving fields and grass. This refreshing zephyr in Japanese is kunpu. This model’s rich, green dial seizes a summer moment to enjoy forever.
When it comes to the house of Grand Seiko, they're known for creating things with a purpose other than just telling the time. They make some of the most interesting dials out there and even if they make something simple like this watch they can still finish it at such a high level that it's hard to even call it simple. What we have here today is Grand Seiko’s SBGH271. This is one of four of Grand Seiko seasons USA exclusive releases. The watches are inspired by the four seasons: Summer, autumn, winter, and spring.
In this case, we have a watch that is inspired by sunny summer times. A beautiful green dial inspired by the trees with gold accents that are inspired by the sun to fully capture the emotions of the summer times. Now the finishing on the dial deserves the spotlight. Despite the gorgeous colors, that dial is finished to a level of perfection. You can even see the finishing is so high-quality that the reflection of the hand is visible as it sweeps across the dial. It doesn't stop there however, Grand Seiko finishes their hands and indices extremely well that it catches the light even in the darkest of settings which I've grown to appreciate a lot. The polished and brushed cold hands and indices are amazing in the flesh. Though the green dial turns darker in some settings to almost black, the luster of the gold never fades. Now let's get the specifications of this watch out of the way first. This watch is 40 millimeters across and it has a 21 millimeter strap size. The thickness of this watch is 12.9 millimeters, however, as you can probably tell, the watch's bezel actually makes the watch appear a lot smaller on the wrist and in a really good way it wears very comfortably.
Quite frankly, I can't see any wrist size that can’t support this. Now unlike the other two models of the four seasons, this watch is made out of fully stainless steel with the famous Zaratsu polishing finish, also known as mirror-like finishing. The bracelet, however, is my favorite. It is comfortable, but with the level of detail and finishing on the watch itself, it makes this bracelet have a lot of room for improvement. I really hope Grand Seiko focuses more on their bracelet in the future, as this would make the watch unbeatable in the everyday watch category against an Aqua Terra or an Oyster Perpetual 39. Now finally we have the 9s85 caliber which is actually a high beat movement, not a spring drive. Within the collection, we have two spring drive movements and two high beats. The spring drives are reserved for spring and winter while the 9s85 is reserved for summer and autumn. Now the 9S85 is actually a high beat that beats at 36,000 VPH and has a power reserve of 55 hours. The watch is accurate to plus 5 to minus 30 seconds per day.
