THE MODERN RE-INTERPRETATION OF THE FIRST GRAND SEIKO 96S8
While inheriting the ethos of the first Grand Seiko created in 1960, this contemporary model features an advanced design philosophy, new materials and the Calibre 9S68 large-diameter mechanical movement.
While the case width is slighter larger at 40.5 mm, its design belies its actual diameter and makes it feel slimmer. It is made from brilliant hard titanium, a beautiful and resilient new material. It finished with our unique Zaratsu polishing technique, which gives the finish a brightness that conventional pure titanium lacks.
The name Grand Seiko logo at the 12 o’clock position is pressure-embossed.
The watch has an exhibition case back made of sapphire, through which the 9S68 movement and its high quality finish can be enjoyed, proving perhaps that it is possible to both respect and re-invent even the finest of traditions.
Based on the Caliber 9S65 movement, the 9S68 offers the simple purity of a three hand display with calendar function.
Caliber 9S65 is the most standard automatic movement that typifies the 9S mechanical series. The old and new movements may appear to have a similar design, but they are utterly different in terms of performance.
Grand Seiko has not only revised the materials used to make this movement, but also applied MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) technology, which utilizes semi-conductor manufacturing technology, to the production of the watch parts. Grand Seiko has significantly enhanced the basic performance of this timepiece, and has also redesigned the way in which the oscillating weight winds the mainspring.
The winding system of its predecessor, Caliber 9S55, used Grand Seiko’s Magic Lever mechanism. By contrast, Caliber 9S65 uses reverser gear train system. Hardening the components has helped improve the durability of the reverser system, which had been a weakness.
