Seiko’s highest division of watches, Grand Seiko (GS), has just released a new watch that celebrates the Nissan GT-R’s 50th anniversary. Matching the Japanese supercar’s high level of detail and performance, the SBGC229 uses this half-century celebration to also mark Seikos 20th anniversary for its Spring Drive technology found in its movements.

Details like a blue ceramic case and rich white dial directly reflect the Nissan GT-R 50th anniversary model — ultimately acting as a nod towards to original Skyline 2000 GT-R “Bayside Blue.” Other traits include a white crocodile strap, a GT-R anniversary emblem in 18k yellow gold set into the oscillating weight, titanium inner-case construction, and a GS-stamped crown.

In terms of timekeeping, the watch boasts Seikos incredible accuracy of ±0.5 seconds per day, a power reserve of 72 hours, a power reserve indicator, magnetic resistance of 4,800 A/m, a GMT function, and a chronograph function. Those interested in the commemorative Grand Seiko x Nissan GT-R’s 50th Anniversary SBGC229 watch can send a request over at the GS web store where it is priced at $21,000 USD. Act fast as there are only 200 units worldwide.
