The dial of the new Grand Seiko Hi-beat 36000 Limited Edition is propelled to the plumage of a peacock, a bird that interests humankind since classical occasions. A dark green tone and the stepped design make this dial on the double striking but inconspicuous.
Created from hardened steel and estimating 40 mm x 14.4 mm, the case is a contemporary reevaluation of acclaimed 44GS plan from 1967 that set the Grand Seiko style. It offers water protection from 100 meters/330 feet.
Like each Grand Seiko watch, it offers highly cleaned, contortion free surfaces, razor edged hands for high readability and ideal comfort on the wrist.
Multi-faceted rectangular markers and hands, one of the notorious attributes of Grand Seiko, make clarity simple, even in low light conditions. The GMT hand can be utilized as a double time marker with the hour hand being customizable autonomously as the hour of day hands keep on stamping time.
The hi-beat GMT development 9S86 is planned, made, amassed, changed and tried at the Shizuku-Ishi Watch Studio in where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are made and gathered, by hand, by the studio’s experts and ladies.
Beating at 36,000 vibrations each hour (8 beats each second), this programmed type has a high exactness of +5 to – 3 seconds per day and a force save of 55 hours. It is obvious through the screwed transparent case back.
