For quite some time, Grand Seiko was regarded as the hidden gem of the watch industry. In fact, for many it still remains somewhat of a mystery as watches with Seiko on the dial tend to be known for being around a more entry-level price point. Grand Seiko is different though and the Spring Drive is even more so. Although the Grand Seiko name has been around since 1960, the world had to wait until 1997 to learn about a new mechanical/electronic marvel known as the Spring Drive.
So what actually is Spring Drive? Well in a shorthand way, this hybrid of both quartz and mechanical timekeeping swaps out a traditional escapement in place for a tri-synchro regulator. At its core, this regulator uses a glide wheel and uses electro-magnets to regulate the glide wheel frictionlessly. The end result is a monthly accuracy tolerance that rivals most mechanical watches’ daily tolerance. Essentially, Grand Seiko offers the reliability and accuracy of quartz, just with the endless supply of power you find with mechanical timekeeping.
The modern-day Grand Seiko lineup is split into four clear and distinctive collections: Masterpiece, Elegance, Sport, and Heritage. The Sport range is the hardest wearing of the quartet, as its name indicates serving as the brand’s sports-focused, tool watch range. While finely executed at the same level as the watches across the famed Japanese maker’s other design families, the timepieces within the Sport collection are foremost distinguished in their action-readiness, often featuring more utilitarian styles and utility-focused complications that work to serve the everyday rather than the every once in a while.
Why We Love It
Spring Drive GMT from Grand Seiko is a beautiful thing and one that was been admired for many years by the globetrotters among us. The SBGE263 speaks the same language as the Spring Drive GMTs before it, but now it’s available in a more compact case size. Measuring 40.5mm in width, the SBGE263 is a versatile piece both in size and design, with a moreish level of aggressive styling.
Textbook Grand Seiko features from its elite level of finishing both brushed and polished, its smart use of materials such as ceramic for its fixed bezel, and its effective blend of sporty style with refined luxury. The closer you look the better this SBGE263 gets as it approaches simplicity in a complex manner with robust results. Its 4 o’clock crown, 200m of water resistance, and game-changing Spring Drive system all help contribute to a killer contemporary GMT.
