Grand Seiko’s SBGE248 Spring Drive GMT Watch Strikes Gold

Grand Seiko is a staple in the wristwear industry. And with each new release, the company vies for a new position on its journey to the apex of watchmaking. It’s no secret that the Japanese brand solicits immense inspiration from life’s most luxurious facets, but with the recently announced SBGE248 Spring Drive GMT, their commitment to opulent timekeeping is as apparent as ever.

The SBGE248 Spring Drive GMT is the newest addition to the company’s revered Sport Collection, boasting a handsome, contrasting bezel and high-performance components that strike a subtle balance between style and function. Referencing the beauty of the morning sun as it floats in the eastern sky, Grand Seiko has opted for an expressive pairing of aesthetic blue (found on the watch’s indicator ring), and 18-karat yellow gold (seen throughout the timepiece’s tasteful, stainless-steel bezel). An anti-reflective coating complements the Spring Drive’s dual-curved sapphire enclosure, protecting the company’s accurate Caliber 9R66 automatic movement. GMT functionality ensures that the watch is as precise as its quartz counterparts, while quality-of-life implementations like 20-bar water resistance, equipped magnetic resistance, and rotating bezel pay homage to life’s “continuous flow.” The SBGE248 Spring Drive GMT is slated for launch in September — but it’ll set you back $11,500.
