Esteemed Japanese watchmaker Grand Seiko debuted their first-ever wristwatch back in 1960, and with the arrival of 2020, the company is now celebrating its 60th anniversary with a limited edition collection spanning across three of its ranges. The standout piece, however, is definitely the Heritage Collection Hi-Beat 36000 SGBH281.

As its name suggests, the timepiece is powered by the in-house high beat Caliber 9S85, an automatic movement delivering an exceptional accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds per day and an impressive power reserve of 55 hours. The 37-jewel movement is then housed in a 40mm stainless steel case, with a dual-curved sapphire crystal on the top and a screw-in sapphire caseback on the bottom. The design of the dial itself is inspired by the famous 44GS launched in 1967, delivering a deep blue face with silver indices, a gold “GS” logo, and a contrasting red inscription by the 6 o’clock position as well as the seconds hand, colors that the brand says “symbolize a sunrise and all the new energy that a new dawn brings.” Completing the watch is a date window by 3 o’clock and a stainless steel bracelet with a three-fold clasp with push-button release.

For the watch connoisseurs out there, the Grand Seiko 60th Anniversary Hi-Beat 36000 Limited Edition SGBH281 is now available, limited to just 1,500 pieces and retailing for $6,300 USD. Head over to the brand’s website to learn more now.

Elsewhere in watches, Panerai has launched a new Luminor Marina Carbotech.
