Grand Seiko Spring Drive USA Edition (SBGA384) Luxury Watch Review

Contact for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it! Shop all Grand Seiko watches: 2018 marks the establishment of Grand Seiko of America, the first independent Grand Seiko Company outside of Japan. To commemorate this occasion, the Grand Seiko Spring Drive US Edition SBGA384 has been launched as a limited edition of 50 pieces in rose gold. A special Grand Seiko dial has been issued in the image of Japanese "Kira Zuri," or "shiny painting." This silver dial with a sparkling base defines the Spring Drive USA Edition SBGA384. Rose gold hour indices are diamond polished and hand applied; matching rose gold dauphine hands reside at the center of the dial. Grand Seiko's signature "polyhedron" case draws on the vintage Grand Seiko 44gs of 1967; the 2018 Grand Seiko US Boutique Edition includes these signature cues plus Grand Seiko's "zaratsu" distortion free polishing. Each surface of zaratsu finish is executed by an artisan using hand pressure against a spinning tin plate; Rolex and Omega have no equivalent to this process. The Grand Seiko SBGA384 is a 40mm rose gold luxury watch with a Spring Drive caliber 9R15 offers the quartz watch precision and mechanical watch soul of the standard caliber 9R65 spring drive family, but a hand selected quartz oscillator ensures that the 9R15 offers enhanced accuracy of +/1 .5 seconds per 24 hours. The US Limited Edition in rose gold maintains 100-meter water resistance, a three day power reserve, and both hacking seconds and a quick-set date function. The 72-hour power reserve can be monitored using a power reserve indicator on the dial. The Grand Seiko Spring Drive USA Edition is encased in 40mm of rose gold surrounding a silver kira-zuri dial on a brown leather strap. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date, and power reserve indicator. The watch also measures 12.9mm in thickness and 46mm from lug-to-lug. For complete details, watch the full review!
