Grand Seiko 44GS 55th Anniversary Limited Edition SBGY009

Regular price $8,100 now $5,250 Unit price  per 

2022 marks the 55th anniversary of the 44GS, which in 1967 introduced the unique design language that would guide the brand's timepieces for decades to comethe Grand Seiko Style. In commemoration, Grand Seiko presents the 44GS 55th Anniversary Limited Edition reference SBGY009 featuring a dial inspired by tsuki tenshin, the moment when the full moon is at its highest point in the sky.

With SBGY009, the modern 44GS design is made slimmer due to the thin manual wind Spring Drive 9R31 caliber. This movement employs a dual spring barrel that helps keep the movement compact and achieve a greater power reserve of 72 hours. It is beautifully decorated with exposed jewels, tempered screws, and diamond-cut sinks.  

The stainless steel case measures 40mm and houses a dial with a dynamic sunray press pattern that catches the light at every angle, recreating the moon cast over the landscape at the highest point in the sky. 

SBGY009 is a limited edition of 1,500.

About Grand Seiko

Grand Seiko emerged in 1960 as a high-end watch line from Seiko, aiming to challenge Swiss dominance in luxury watchmaking. The brand quickly established itself with Japan's first chronometer-grade watch and later gained renown for its innovative Spring Drive technology, which combines the best of automatic and quartz movements. In 2017, Grand Seiko became an independent entity, solidifying its position in the luxury watch market.

The brand's design philosophy, known as the "Grammar of Design," was established in 1967 with the Grand Seiko 44GS. This aesthetic approach emphasizes legibility, refined appearances, and distinctive features like multi-faceted markers and hands, a half-recessed crown, and the meticulous Zaratsu polishing technique. Grand Seiko continues to push boundaries in watchmaking, as evidenced by recent innovations like the "Kodo Constant-Force Tourbillon," while maintaining its commitment to precision engineering and unique design language.
