A slim, mid-size re-interpretation of the 44GS with a brown sunray pattern dial – SBGW293

SBGW293 is a 36.5 mm modern re-interpretation of the original 44GS design. With its sharp, diamond-cut indexes and hands and a clean, open sunray pattern dial, this classic dress watch offers all the essential characteristics of Grand Seiko at their most pure. This watch is the smallest 44GS design in the Grand Seiko collection and it sits easily and elegantly on the wrist thanks to slimness of the manual winding Caliber 9S64.

The Grand Seiko Style that the 1967 44GS embodied has nine separate elements that govern the design of every detail of the watch, from the angle of the case to the shape of the 12 o’clock index and the flatness of the dial. All are clearly in evidence here and contribute to the special “sparkle of quality” that defines Grand Seiko.

Every facet of the case, the hands and the indexes is designed to reflect even the smallest ray of light and to create countless combinations of light and shadow that change at each new angle. The Zaratsu polished mirror surfaces and hairline finishes combine perfectly. This is the crisp, clear and unique aesthetic that says “This is Grand Seiko”.
