Sophisticated elegance, equipped with the 9S86 calibre and Hi-Beat 36000 GMT
In keeping with Grand Seiko's traditional inspirations, the watchmakers developed the very high-quality 9S85 calibre: a high-precision powerhouse with a power reserve of 55 hours. This model from the Elegance Collection includes an upgrade of this timepiece, including GMT function! The newly designed 9S86 calibre embodies the Grand Seiko ideal of high accuracy, while maintaining exceptional precision in both the essential time display and the GMT function. The retro-modern dial is engraved with a 1/5 second scale unique to a 10-beat model.
"Mechanical hi-beat 36000 GMT"
This high specification timepiece provides the same accuracy (+5 to -3 seconds per day) and the same power reserve (55 hours) as the core Calibre 9S85, while also providing the GMT function needed by the international traveller to ensure that the accuracy of the displayed time is not compromised when the time zone is changed. The GMT hand indicates the time in its own time zone.
By pulling out the crown one position, the hour hand can be adjusted without stopping the second hand, so that the Hi-Beat 36000's highly accurate timekeeping is not lost. Calibration 9S86 is the embodiment of the Grand Seiko ideal of high accuracy, while maintaining exceptional precision in both the essential time display and the GMT function.
