Grand Seiko SBGJ219 Review
Grand Seiko is not just one of the most exceptional watchmakers in the world, they are also one of the few that know what to create to make their increasing customers tick. When the Japanese watchmakers launched the Grand Seiko SBGJ219, they brought their A-game, making sure that they did not disappoint the design and functionality legacy they have built over the years.
The Grand Seiko SBGJ219 is one of the watches in the elegance collection of the Japanese giant. It is handcrafted so you can imagine the top-notch attention to detailing, the awesome design and the craftsmanship employed to produce a final masterpiece. The Grand Seiko SBGJ219 is also a GMT watch, giving the user the value of two watches for the price of one.
In summary, the SBGJ219 is a men’s watch that is a classic that meant for the elegant and classy, because of its awesome design, and amazing features.
Grand Seiko SBGJ219: Exterior
Attention to quality despite the aesthetical design of any watch is one of the principles of Grand Seiko. Not deviating from this principle, Grand Seiko continues its tradition with the materials used in crafting the SBGJ219. Its circular casing is from high-quality stainless steel, with a diameter of 39.5mm and 13.9mm thickness. The casing is polished into a shining finish using the famous Zaratsu hand polishing technique that is synonymous to Grand Seiko.
Weighing a total of about 90.0g, the watch can be fastened to the wrist by the aid of perfectly crafted, comfortable, crocodile/alligator leather which has a simple push-button deployant, three-fold clasp. The leather band is about 192.00mm in perimeter which is big enough to accommodate all wrist sizes.
To protect the dial while still giving the owner clear view, and longevity, the Grand Seiko SBGJ219 is protected by a box-shaped sapphire glass covering with anti-reflective coating on its inner surface which is scratch resistant. Finally, the back of the case has six screws and also comes with the famous lion emblem that is a signature of Grand Seiko.
Grand Seiko SBGJ219: Movement
The design of a watch may be elegant to the eyes, but the movement system – which we can call its engine – is the real deal when it comes to the quality of a watch. Grand Seiko SBGJ219 does not disappoint at all in this at all. Built with an automatic with manual winding capacity, mechanical HI-BEAT 36000 GMT, 9S86 caliber movement system, the SBGJ219 performs at its optimum.
The 9S86 caliber is a high specification movement system that was created to provide a unique accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds a day. Another feature of this caliber is its 55hour power reserve which is an improvement on the 42hours that is common to some other watches. Also, 37 jewels were employed in building this movement system thereby reducing the chances of wear and tear among its internal moving parts.
Furthermore, the Grand Seiko SBGJ219’s movement system is HI-BEAT 36000 GMT enabled. This means that the watch has two-hour hands working consecutively to show the time of two different time zone (An advantage to people who constantly travels within different time zones)
Finally, one of the significant advantages of this movement system is its design. Grand Seiko improved on the design so that precision is increased while reducing considerably the weight of its component, which resulted in a more durable movement system.
Grand Seiko SBGJ219: Functions
Not only does the Grand Seiko SBGJ219 has a beautiful design, but it also has some great functions that give more worth to the watch, making it a timepiece beyond just a fashion item. Being a GMT watch, it offers you two watches in one. With two-hour hands, the owner can set one of the hands to tell the time within his/her time zone, while the other hour hand can be set to any other time zone of choice. Both hands will work concurrently with top match accuracy.
The 55 hours power reserve of the SBGJ219 is another very nice feature. The watch will work non stop for more than 2 days before it needs a recharge/winding. Furthermore, the SBGJ219 is magnetic resistance enabled. This eradicates the fear of a reduction in time accuracy or even damage to any of its parts if used near a magnetic field.
With a water resistance of about 3bars, the SBGJ219 is splash resistant to about 30meter. However, this watch should be allowed to come in contact with corrosive liquid/chemicals which can damage it. Finally, other functions of the Grand Seiko SBGJ219 include its stop second-hand function, time difference adjustment which is linked to its calendar, etc.
Grand Seiko SBGJ219: Display
Grand Seiko is always impressive when it comes to the details and design of their display. On the SBGJ219, the black dial brings a remembrance of the sky in the night time. Although there are no Arabic numerals, the stainless index hour marker gives a wonderful time checking experience, while there is also a finely printed index for minute and seconds track.
The multifaceted hour, minute and second hand are very visible as they tick gracefully along with the dial. The second GMT hour hand also glide along with the dial with a visible red arrow at the end of the hand to indicate time of the set time zone.
At the 3:00 position, the date window is located, while the famous GS signature of Grand Seiko sits just under the 12:00 mark. Finally, another wonderful feature to look forward to in the SBGJ219 is the see-through case back that displays the 37 jewels, 9S68 caliber movement system can be viewed.
