Grand Seiko SBGJ265 Hi-Beat 36000 GMT Heritage Collection


Grand Seiko SBGJ265 – 44GS in Ever-Brilliant Steel

Available: April 2023.

SBGJ265 features Grand Seiko’s modern 44GS design, a contemporary take on a watch that first launched in 1967 and formed the cornerstone of the Grand Seiko Style.

The case and bracelet are made of Ever-Brilliant Steel, a stainless-steel alloy that features even greater corrosion resistance than what is typically used across the watch industry today. It has a PREN (Pitting Resistance Equivalent Number) value 1.7 times higher than that of the grade of steel used in most high-class watches. Visually, it also has a brilliant white hue that enhances the beauty and Zaratsu finishing of the watch.

The black dial of SBGJ265 features Grand Seiko’s “Mt. Iwate” pattern, inspired by the many-ridged contours of Mt. Iwate when viewed from above. Multi-faceted hands and hour indexes give the dial depth and dimensionality and are emblematic of Grand Seiko design, and a GMT hand adds a pop of color.

Powering the watch is the Hi-Beat Caliber 9S86, which runs at 36,000 bph, delivers an accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds a day, and offers 55 hours of power reserve. A GMT function allows the user to track an additional time zone, making SBGJ265 an excellent watch for frequent travelers.
