Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGA375G Watch Review

Introducing the brand new Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGA375G watch, a spectacular recreation of the brand’s 44GS model first launched in 1967. This contemporary regeneration tributes the cornerstone of the Grand Seiko design philosophy by boasting the same case shape and multiple polished angles of the original 44GS watch that has set the look and feel of Grand Seiko watches for the last 40 years.

Measuring a little bigger than the original, the Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGA375G watch comes to 40mm on the wrist and is crafted from stainless steel that has been polished using the brands famous Zaratsu technique. The Seiko watch brand have always put a lot of emphasis on the way their designs interact with the light and the gorgeous faceted case and finishing on the dial creates an unmissable shine.

The aesthetic of the Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGA375G watch is not the only thing to impress. The unbeatable Calibre 9R65 is housed within the case showcasing an incredible power reserve of 72 hours and an accuracy of +1 and -15 seconds a month, an accuracy that completely overpowers any typical COSC certified timepiece. The automatic winding mechanism also uses Grand Seiko’s original Magic Lever mechanism and mainspring technology making it one of the most accurate timepieces in the industry.

The deep midnight blue dial of the Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGA375G watch is remarkable, boasting a colour so dark that it appears almost black in lower light. The dial is coupled with faceted indices, sleek steel hands and a date window at 3 o clock. At the bottom left, you will also find an understated power reserve indicator which beautifully compliments the rest of the dial without over cluttering.

With a retail price of only £4,700, it really feels like you are getting a lot of watch for the money. It’s exceptional design and unbeatable automatic calibre makes the Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGA375G watch a must have for any serious collector.
