The dial of the Grand Seiko Hi-beat 36000 with its deep green colour and the stamped pattern is at once striking and yet subtle. The case and movement are the same as in the celebrated watch that won the “Petite Aiguille” award prize at the Grand Prix de Genève in 2014.
The hi-beat GMT movement 9S86 is assembled in the Shizukuishi Watch Studio where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are manufactured and assembled.
The calibre has a high accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds a day and a power reserve of 55 hours. The GMT hand can be used as a dual time indicator with the hour hand being adjustable independently as the time of day hands continues to mark time—a perfect watch for the international traveller.
Limited to 700pieces, the 40mm watch is a contemporary re-interpretation of the acclaimed 44GS design from 1967 that set the Grand Seiko style. Like every Grand Seiko watch, it offers highly polished, distortion-free surfaces, razor-edged hands for high legibility and perfect comfort on the wrist.
