With the determination to "make the world's finest wristwatches", we put all the parts accuracy, assembly technology, and adjustment technology that we have cultivated up to that point into the Grand Seiko (GS) that was born in 1960. ).

SBGR073 is a self-winding model of GS released in 2012. The major differences from the current Grand Seiko are the case size and dial logo.

The case size is 37mm, which is familiar to Japanese men, and the watch does not overstate it.

A simple yet beautiful design based on the design principle of "Seiko style" that uses many planes is also characteristic.

The dial is a navy dial, which is rare for Grand Seiko, and the second hand with one-point red is cool.

The beautiful finish of the hands and indexes is highly evaluated overseas, but I think you can see the same in this watch as well.

SEIKO on the 12 o'clock side and GS and Grand Seiko on the 6 o'clock side, which are close to the original GS, are specifications up to this age.

The current model has only the notation of GS and Grand Seiko on the 12 o'clock side and nothing on the 6 o'clock side, so the impression is a little different.

The movement equipped with

is Cal.9S65, which is also used in the current model. Not to mention the accuracy, the power reserve (duration) is 72 hours, which is a big feature.

During Saturdays and Sundays, you don't need to set the time because it works even if you remove it and leave it as it is.

Like Grand Seiko with the concept of "the best ordinary" and "the highest peak of practical watches", It is an all-round watch full of practicality that is easy to match with any style.

Includes genuine bracelet, box, GS certification pass certificate and repair certificate.

Since there are 4 extra frames, it is possible to handle up to 19 cm around the arm.

Complete service and light polish are provided at Seiko in April 2021.

1 year warranty.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
