For brands and retailers, the new SBGM241 is the best of both worlds, and it is the perfect combination.
Hot media: Grand Seiko replica and Watches of Switzerland teamed up to create the first collaborative work. The new “Toge Special Edition” combines the Japanese and British heritage of the two brands to form a real East-West timepiece.
Regarding the special edition of Toge (SBGM241), the first thing you might notice is the striking green dial, which is the meeting point between the two cultures. This is not only green, but also British racing green.
Green and shadow of high mountain pass
Iconic shadows are legends of several generations of British racing teams, including Bentley at the Le Mans in the 1920s, Bugatti at William Gover Williams at the 1929 Monaco Grand Prix, and Aston Martin and Lotus , Vanwall, Cooper and BRM throughout the 1950s and 1960s.
Layered shadows are combined. In Japanese, the word Tōgè means “mountain pass”. This is a suitable name for the new model. Especially when considered together, the green layered shadow and the texture of Grand Seiko’s iconic Iwate Mountain dial subtly evoke the image of the drive across the ridge of Iwate Mountain in northern Japan.
Another prominent feature here is the GMT golden pointer. This adds bright colors to Grand Seiko’s conservative design, and according to the brand’s news pictures, the color of the dial is beautifully supplemented, adding a nod to the racing tradition behind the green dial. Not to mention, the Greenwich Mean Time function means that the best watch is ideal for traveling between time zones, such as the United Kingdom and Japan.
Beauty from the inside out
The 39.5mm stainless steel case is the original work of Nobuhiro Kosugi, the chief designer of Grand Seiko. He is the same person who created the modern 44GS case design. The thickness of the case is 13.7mm, which is crescent-shaped. Due to Seiko’s iconic Zaratsu polishing technology, the watch will also shine like the moon.
Under the hood is the 9S66 movement with a 72-hour power reserve and an accuracy of -3 / + 5 seconds per day. The 35 jewel movement is an upgrade of the Seiko 9S56 movement with a 48-hour power reserve. For people who travel frequently, a cool thing is that you can change the hour hand without affecting the minute and second hands. Like many other Grand Seikos watches, this beautifully decorated movement can be seen through the sapphire caseback.
