Grand Seiko SBGX089 (LE 500 Pieces)
For sale is a Grand Seiko SBGX089.
Nicknamed the "Grand Seiko Milgauss" for the it's antimagnetic property and the double red text at the bottom, the SBGX089 is a 500 pieces limited edition that features a brand new case that appears to be a combination of the 62GS and the 44GS case.
The watch case receives its 62GS DNA for its flat top case and angular lugs and the extended mid section between the lugs from the 44GS.

Measuring 38. 8mm in diameter and 11mm in thickness, the watch wears well on most wrist size as compared to other Grand Seiko from the sport collection.
