Grand Seiko SBGJ261 “Peacock” 44GS Hi-Beat GMT US Limited Edition
SBGJ261 – Heritage Collection U.S. Limited Edition
Limited to 500 pieces
Unveiled in 2017, the original SBGJ227 “Peacock” was an immediate hit with watch collectors who fell in love with its distinctive green dial and pattern inspired by the peacock’s feathers. Today at COUTURE, Grand Seiko Corporation of America is proud to reintroduce the Peacock, this time as a U.S. Limited Edition of 500 pieces with a mesmerizing blue and purple dial.
The dial of SBGJ261 features a texture achieved through an intricate press patterning process. The effect, radiating from the dial’s center, is immediately eye-catching, recalling the vibrant plumage of a peacock’s train. Multi-faceted indexes and razor-edged hands offer high legibility, as well as a contrasting GMT hand for tracking an additional time zone. A dual-curved sapphire tops the dial.
The 44GS case was first introduced in 1967, establishing the design profile that came to be known as the Grand Seiko Style. In 2013, Grand Seiko unveiled the modern interpretation of the 44GS, created by Grand Seiko designer Nobuhiro Kosugi. 2022 marks the 55th anniversary of the original 44GS design.
Powering the watch is Hi-Beat GMT caliber 9S86, a movement assembled by the craftsmen and women of Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi, the homeplace of all Grand Seiko mechanical watches. The caliber has an accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds a day (when static), a beat rate of 36,000 bph, and a power reserve of 55 hours. Additionally, the GMT hand allows for the tracking of a second time zone, with the hour hand being independently adjustable.
