Grand Seiko SBGF019 from 2002
For sale is Grand Seiko SBGF019.
Produced in the early 2000s the Grand Seiko SBGF family used to be Grand Seiko's only sports collection before they started producing divers, gmts and chronograph.
In the usual Grand Seiko fashion, the watch is well finished in both brushed and zaratsu polished finishing with brushed finishing more dominant since its a sports watch.
The steel blue dial boasts a strongly three-dimensional appearance, thanks to the substantially-sized appliqués and hands. Lumes are applied to both the hands and indices for easy time reading in low light settings.
Unlike the current Grand Seiko sports watches, the watch sits extremely well on the wrist at just 10.5mm in thickness, 38mm in diameter and 44mm lug to lug.
The watch also features a screw down crown accompanied by crown guard.
Powering the watch is the calibre 8J56. The watch boast of an accuracy of ±10s/year which is the same as the 9Fs but has a battery life of 5 years instead of 3 years and an independent hour hand which allows quick change of time between different time zones.
The watch case is in excellent condition with common hairline scratches seen on the case. The watch dial and hands are near perfect with just very minor aging seen on the GS logo and hands. A brand new double domed sapphire crystal has been installed. The original crystal will be given during purchase.
The watch comes on its original bracelet that fits up to 6.75" wrist.
Serial number has been covered for privacy.
Lug Width: 19mm
