Grand Seiko SBGJ273 Hi-Beat GMT Yuka Momiji
Grand Seiko SBGJ273 – “Yuka Momiji”
In Japan, an appreciation for the changing seasons is woven into the fabric of daily life. Grand Seiko celebrates the ebullient reds of autumn with its latest creation, the Hi-Beat 36000 GMT SBGJ273. With its red striated dial, this watch calls to mind the way lacquered wooden floors in a traditional Japanese building reflect the leaves of outside maple trees, expressing yuka momiji.
The SBGJ273 comes in a classic case shape from the Elegance Collection that was influenced by the very first Grand Seiko watch from 1960. Its rounded case and raised box-shaped crystal ensure mid-century good looks, while a gold-colored GMT hand adds to the feeling of autumn.
The Hi-Beat 9S86 movement uses MEMS for escapement parts and Spron alloys for the mainspring and hairspring. This movement provides excellent rate stability, accuracy to +5/-3 seconds per day, and resistance to shocks while maintaining a power reserve of 55 hours when fully wound.
