Hands-On Grand Seiko SBGJ017 GMT Hi-Beat ReviewLast year, I reviewed the Grand Seiko SBGM021, an identical looking style of might know about have here today. However, the Grand Seiko SBGJ017 GMT features a hi-beat movement along with a less casual appearance. Let's take a peek.Grand Seiko SBGJ017The ivory dial from the aforementioned SBGM021 is one thing I truly love with that watch. It offers an incredible contrast with all the hands as well as a playful appearance. This Grand Seiko SBGJ017 GMT includes a silver dial and looks more elegant than the SBGM021. But enough with the comparison, this new Grand Seiko SBGJ017 (introduced in September this past year) landed on the desk and was introduced as well as its black dial SBGJ019 counterpart. It features Grand Seiko's caliber 9S86, the industry hi-beat (36,000vph) self-winding movement.Excellent FinishEvery time a Grand Seiko, I have found myself being stunned at the impeccable finish of the dial and hands. Within my visit to the Grand Seiko manufactories in Japan I witnessed the painstakingly technique of polishing plus the continuous checking with the results replica gents watch . The applied hour markers plus the razor sharp hands are incredibly pleasing for the eyes.The awkward thing with the dial remains the usage of several fonts to point that you are looking at a Seiko Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 GMT. This doesn't happen bother me that much, however, many people commented into it here before, and I say they certainly have a very valid point. For me it would not be a deal-breaker, but it really might have been more balanced when Seiko would use the same typography.CaseThe the event of the Grand Seiko SBGJ017 measures 39.5mm across and contains a thickness of 13.9mm. It's really a very elegant case, despite its thickness. The boxed sapphire crystal also occupies some space (thickness) of course, but looks stunning. The caseback also offers a sapphire crystal, so that you can admire the hi-beat calibre 9S86 movement. The crown may be signed using the GS logo. Operation of functions is conducted through crown.To be honest it truly is a type of can't-do-wrong form of cases, they are going to suit about everyone. The truth from the Grand Seiko SBGJ021 for instance, is more outspoken and you also have to dig those sharp lines.Nevertheless, this is a very comfortable watch for the wrist. The dimensions of 39.5mm is going to be great for many (including ladies). The lug-width is 19mm, which limits that you simply bit when searching for alternative straps though not that uncommon watches compare . This Grand Seiko includes a rather nice crocodile strap anyway.MovementAnother aspect that sets Grand Seiko besides other Seiko replica watches is naturally the movement. On this Grand Seiko SBGJ017 look for the 9S86 calibre. It is among their high beat ("hi-beat") movements including a GMT function. Precisely the same movement may also be found in the special edition Grand Seiko SBGJ021 ("Mt. Iwate") we also reviewed a little while ago.This movement ticks at 36,000vph, which implies it features a rate of 10 beats per second. A very high ticking number similar to this produces a very smooth sweep of the resale. Another brand that uses this high beat rate is Zenith one example is, since their 1969 El Primero caliber movement. However, this isn't exactly new at all to (Grand) Seiko also. Already in 1967 Seiko used these hi-beat calibers. A better beat rate means an improved accuracy, but there are many downsides too. Usage in the parts (due to higher beat rate) might cause a higher frequency of servicing. This Grand Seiko is guaranteed to have an accuracy between -3 and +5 seconds daily an average of, that is within COSC standards (it is not a chronometer though, as Grand Seiko uses their very own standards). Brands like Rolex (-2/+2 seconds) and Omega (0/+5 seconds) are recently also using more strict standards than COSC rates these to.The ability reserve of the 9S86 is 55 hours along with the movement uses 37 jewels.The finish in the movement is rather pleasing to the eyes. Beautiful decoration for the bridges and oscillating weight.On the WristThe Grand Seiko SBGJ017 GMT is a superb everyday wearer, like a number of other Grand Seiko replica watches. It truly is, of course, not your average sports watch so if you feel into that, there are a few other options with the Grand Seiko collection. There really is this SBGJ017 to become comfortable around the wrist, also as a result of soft croco strap. This Grand Seiko has a pretty deployant clasp having a signed buckle.Although I have fairly large wrists, 39.5mm is an excellent size. We have more replica watches that measure 39mm and 40mm I afflict see them very comfortable. In the event it gets smaller, like my 38mm Chronoswiss, 37mm King Seiko, 36mm Datejust or various 34 & 35mm vintage pieces, it turns into a bit too small to me. Although I enjoy and love those replica watches, they don't get much wear as a result of smaller sizes. Therefore, 39.5mm is only great.Again, a number of people do not get the Grand Seiko brand name think (and say) it's just your average Seiko (which is fine at the same time). You 'must' have a bit of a thick skin if you're vulnerable for people comments, but frankly, I can't care. You buy this watch for your self also, since you are confident and convinced through the quality of the craftsmanship from (Grand) Seiko.Price and AvailabilityThis Grand Seiko SBGJ017 retails for 7200 Euro inside Netherlands. That is by no means cheap, however the in the watch is certainly on par with the majority of the Swiss brands that qualify themselves as haute horlogerie. The watch is available in the famous blue Grand Seiko leather box by incorporating warranty papers and manual. To be truthful, replica rolex there is something to win here for them. A nicer / richer box would have been nice and would fit the high quality standards of the watch (and the price).More info via Grand Seiko on-line. replica breitling olympus watches
