Grand Seiko 44GS SBGH345: The Red-Hot Online Exclusive

Picture this: a sleek 40mm case, sharp faceted shoulders, a slim conical bezel, and a slightly recessed crown....

Guess what’s making a comeback? The Grand Seiko 44GS, the OG timepiece that set the rules for the brand’s style game back in 1967. Fast forward to 2023, and it’s back with a fresh face – the SBGH345.

Picture this: a sleek 40mm case, sharp faceted shoulders, a slim conical bezel, and a slightly recessed crown. It’s all about that Zaratsu polishing technique, giving it that signature Grand Seiko shine. But here’s the kicker – it’s not just any steel; it’s Ever-Brilliant Steel, an upgrade from the usual 316L steel. It’s got more brilliance, a whiter hue, and better corrosion resistance. Dive into the details, and you’ll find a 100m water-resistant case, a screw-down crown, and sapphire crystals with AR coating on both sides.

Let’s talk dial, shall we? The SBGH345 is turning heads with its scarlet red dial, a bold move indeed. The Mt. Iwate pattern gives it a classic texture, inspired by the ridges of Mt. Iwate, the mountain next to the Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi. Paired with silver-toned markers and hands, it’s a combo that screams sophistication.

Flip it over, and you’ll find the trusty calibre 9S85 doing its thing. It’s a hi-beat automatic movement, ticking at 5Hz or 36,000 vibrations/hour. With a power reserve of 55 hours and a claimed accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds per day, this bad boy means business.
