  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2011 to celebrate the 130th anniversary of Grand Seiko, the reference SBGW033 is one of 1,300 examples cased in stainless steel, with silvered hour and minute hands and a blued steel seconds hand. Alongside a platinum limited series of 130 pieces and 130 pieces of yellow gold, the trio were all housed in a handsome and bold 36mm case, powered by the 9S64 manually-wound caliber with a three-day power reserve, as a tribute to the very first Grand Seiko model, the reference 3180. The only other small upgrade from the original was a practical change of crystal material from Plexiglas to sapphire.

    Offered with no reserve, the present example is offered from the collection of the original owner, who worked tirelessly to obtain this piece from Japan as a foreigner. The case, movement, dial and hands are all executed and finished to the highest degree and quality - a defining characteristic of Grand Seiko. Furthermore, this watch is accompanied by its guarantee, additional Certificate, original hang tag, product literature, fitted presentation box and outer packaging. The quality and appearance of the dial is second to none, with a beautiful eggshell tone – the perfect daily wearer.
