Grand Seiko has unveiled its latest special edition GMT, crafted exclusively for timepiece retailer Watches of Switzerland.

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.

For those interested, Grand Seiko’s Toge Special Edition GMT for Watches of Switzerland is now available for pre-orders, going for $5,200 USD. Head over to the retailer’s website to grab yours now.

Elsewhere in watches, Fossil has resurrected the BIG TIC with Japan’s Backside Works.
