In 1960 Grand Seiko worked to challenge Swiss watches and reached to change the perspective of Japanese watches overall. Striving for excellence in the world of timepieces Grand Seiko created a standard for all its future watches to uphold; style with simple yet beautiful designs that withstand the test of time. The Grand Seiko SBGA203, priced at $4,900, carries on that Grand Seiko standard! The SBGA203 is a spring drive watch that has a strong following ever since its release because of its inheritance of a long-lived, cherished yet simple design. This heritage design was the first Grand Seiko watch that's powered by a spring drive and uses a unique caliber combining the force of a master-crafted mainspring with the high precision of a quartz watch. The Grand Seiko SBGA203 continues its exceptionally crafted design with its sleek black face, silvered multifaceted hands that seem to change depending on the light or angle one looks at it, and sweeping hand movement that brings its own unique spin to traditional watches. The SBGA203 brings an eternal appeal that will have everyone wanting to know more about the Grand Seiko designs.
The Grand Seiko SBGA203 uses stainless steel for its case material and dual-curved sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating on the inside, brushed color finishing for the black dial is 41mm in diameter with a thickness of 12.5mm, and the SBGA203 watch also comes with a band which continues the smooth stainless steel material with a perimeter of 19mm as well as a threefold clasp with push-button release. The Applied polished index hour markers along with the silver polished hands create a beautiful contrast to the intensity created by the black dial. As mentioned before, this is a spring drive movement with a thirty jewels 9R65 caliber that is mostly mechanical giving the Grand Seiko SBGA203 extreme accuracy. The beauty of a mostly mechanical watch combined with the quartz oscillator means that we get the accuracy up to plus or minus one second per day. The unwinding force of the wound mainspring generates a small electrical current which is then used to power the quartz oscillator vibrating at about 33,000 HZ, this drives the exceptional precision of the Grand Seiko SBGA203. The SBGA203 has a water resistance up to 10 bars or 100 meters, magnetic resistance equipped, a power reserve of seventy-two hours, and weighs in around 150g. The Grand Seiko SBGA203 comes with the following features and functions: the case back, of course, has the traditional Grand Seiko lion emblem on it, screw-back case & see-through case back (for those who love to see the finer movements of an exquisite watch), a screw-down crown, date display, power reserve display that’s located between seven and eight o’clock and a stop-seconds hand function. It also has your basic seconds, hours, and minutes alongside all these fantastic other features for casual everyday functionality.
When looking for the best watch there are ten key factors to consider, especially when it comes to luxury watches. The first key factor is glass quality; The Grand Seiko SBGA203 uses Sapphire glass which holds up longer over time even through everyday wear, and it is rare to find Sapphire glass that shatters without serious impact. The Second key factor is Metal material; When looking into luxury watches you want the best material for a long-lasting timepiece, and it isn’t hard to see the difference between quality material. Grand Seiko brings us the stainless steel to the SBGA203 which is the best metal one can use on the market. The third key factor is Swiss Vs Japanese movement; These two hands down put out the best watches to date, Grand Seiko prides itself on this fact, and the SBGA203 carries through with that pride for quality movement. The fourth key factor is a solid construction; So, ask yourself these questions: how well does the band fit the case? How well do the clasps work? Does it feel nice on the wrist? Does the Grand Seiko SBGA203 meet these standards? Of course, it does because Grand Seiko prides itself on quality and function. The fifth key factor is if a watch was designed by real watchmakers; Grand Seiko only does watches by the finest watchmakers in their two locations, there is no lowering the bar when it comes to their timepieces and the Grand Seiko SBGA203 is no exception to that. Sixth Key Factor is in the locking deployment for the watch bands; If a watch doesn’t stay closed through the everyday hustle and bustle of life then one can’t fully enjoy the beautiful timepiece. When looking for the perfect watch taking into consideration what kind of clasp comes with it is vital, and Grand Seiko uses a threefold clasp giving the SBGA203 the best support possible. The last four key factors are weight, brand signature, dial lamination, and consistent pricing. As mentioned before, Grand Seiko is no slouch when it comes the watchmaking so of course, they hit the mark when it comes to the last four key factors as well. Overall if you want quality, master craftsmanship, deep care of history, comfort and function then Grand Seiko is the way to go. The Grand Seiko SBGA203 withholds all the standards of the Grand Seiko brand, and one can’t go wrong with this great timepiece.
