Against a staggering field, the Grand Seiko SBGW253, the limited edition Recreation of the First Grand Seiko, won the 2018 Watch Stars award for “Classic Stars,” one of the five categories in the competition.
Classic Stars: Three-handed watches with no functions other than a date and/or power reserve indicator are included in this category. All watches in the Classic Stars category must have mechanical movements.
The finalists for this category included three-hand watches from Cartier, Breguet, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Omega, Panerai, and Rolex, among others.
The Watchstars Awards are international watch awards given out annually by an international committee of experts. Watchstars honors “the best watches of the world” in different categories. The Watchstars committee consists of the most experienced watch specialists around the world. The committee alone is allowed to nominate and vote for the winning watches: manufacturers are not permitted to submit watches. All watches, regardless of size, brand, or country of origin, will be eligible for the Watchstars Awards.
This award is another great achievement for Grand Seiko, which is increasingly recognized for its excellence and desirability. Little Treasury is proud to be an authorized Grand Seiko dealer and doubly proud that we were able to put a good number of SBGW253 timepieces on our customers’ wrists out of the 1960 produced..
