The Backstory

The Sport Collection from Grand Seiko is where you can find all manner of no-nonsense purposeful watches that could be defined as tool watches. Chronographs, GMTs, diving watches, and in some cases a combination of all three have made their way into the Sports Collection over the years. In true Grand Seiko fashion, color schemes, unique executions of materials, and of course incredibly finishing all help contribute to this popular collection.


Battery-powered watches commonly have somewhat of a negative reputation when it comes to watch enthusiasts. During the 1970s, the impact of quartz-powered wristwatches sent its first shock waves around the industry as this new, modern technology not only told and displayed the time both more accurately and clearly, but it was also more reliable and a lot cheaper. 


Grand Seiko knew there was a way to change the reputation of quartz-powered watches and show that the art of watchmaking isn’t lost, just because the power source lacks a little character. In 1993 they set out to develop the best watch movement ever with a focus on solving common issues around quartz watches.


This persistence from the Japanese artisans has resulted in Grand Seiko challenging people’s perception of quartz-powered watches even today. Many models with well-finished quartz movement inside also share the same quality as their mechanical counterparts and equally received a nod of approval from fellow watch collectors in the know.

Why We Love It

While the specs of this Grand Seiko dive watch might not immediately jump off the screen at you (200m water resistance, stainless steel case, quartz movement), it’s a watch that has an immediate sense of quality on the wrist.

The 120-click bezel is easy to grasp and ratchets smoothly with zero give and the hour markers and hour and minute hands are filled with long-lasting Lumi-Brite. The 9F61 Quartz caliber inside is accurate to plus or minus 10 seconds per year (!), a fact worth considering when comparing the SBGX339 to similarly priced luxury dive watches with mechanical movements. The entire case has been expertly decorated with Grand Seiko’s signature Zaratsu polish that leaves zero distortion, and the case design was specifically engineered to allow for quick and easy maintenance to wash up any leftover sand or salt water after a dive.

Seiko, as a whole, has a long and prestigious history of dive watch production, and the SBGX339 represents the premium position of one of the Japanese company’s core competencies.
