Bringing together the retailer’s British heritage and Grand Seiko’s Japanese pedigree, the resulting GMT dresses the latter’s famed textured Mount Iwate dial in British Racing Green, creating a mountaineering watch akin to a luxury version of Seiko‘s very own Alpinist. The stainless steel Zaratsu-polished case measures in at a wrist-friendly 39.5mm, paired elegantly with silver-toned indices and hands, while the royal gold GMT hand works in tandem with the gold-toned 24-hour indicator ring on the inner dial. Powering the watch is the Japanese company’s in-house Caliber 9S66, carrying an impressive power reserve of 72 hours and calibrated to Grand Seiko’s standard of -3 to +5 seconds per day. Completing the alpine model is a brown alligator strap with complementing green stitching.
