Grand Seiko HI-BEAT Automatic Power Reserve Menís Watch

     The million dollar questions

Seiko, undoubtedly, maintains some lofty standards. Itís enough to boggle not just a watch loverís mind, but also of those with a keen eye and appreciation for art. But, does the Grand Seiko HI-BEAT Automatic Power Reserve Menís Watch equals Ė if not exceeds Ė the fine Swiss timepieces? What do you get for the money that fetches you the Grand Seiko HI-BEAT Automatic Power Reserve Menís Watch?

All that you get are...

ē A technically-perfect movement that proves its worth both short- and long-term.
ē GMT, regular time-telling aside; power-reserve indicator and date.
ē The latest in materials, engineered to excellence.
ē A splendid craftsmanship.
ē The enthralling feel of owning a Grand Seiko; not just a high-precision, high-beat watch!

Locking horns:

Oh, there are none beneath the fluted crown, slightly integrated to the case. Pressed in, it winds the mainspring with every turn; to reset the date, pull out to click 1, for resetting the hands, pull out to click 2. But thatís beside the point here; currently, we see the Grand Seiko HI-BEAT Automatic Power Reserve Menís Watch and the iconic Rolex GMT Master II locking the fictitious horns. The rivalry, beyond doubts, is highly consensual.

The Grand Seiko HI-BEAT Automatic Power Reserve Menís Watch is built on the same concepts as the Rolex and shares many of its elements. Casual-chic, robust and rather sporty to look at, the GMT High Beat 36000 GS is a seamless fit into daily city life.

Now, both the Rolex and this GS are produced entirely in-house. The GS is as pure to its entirety; the Calibre 9S86 has high-specs and is as accurate. Fluctuating between -5 to +3 seconds a day and storing power worth running 55 hours on a fully wound mainspring, itís the GMT function that steps up the previous Calibre 9S85 to the existing one.

Perfections noted:

ē Exterior design: This modern take embodies a new and stunning twist on Grand Seikoís design philosophy from í67 when the 44GS was introduced. The reflections are distortion-free and it is a wide mirror-surface throughout.

Beautiful and delicate is its polished finish, also on the dial.

ē Fast-beat movement: Extreme precision always stays the chief advantage over lower-frequency movements; it also makes the 9S86 more shock-resistant than lower-beat mechanisms. An added boon, for sure.

ē Internal material: Spron 610 is the fruit of Seikoís five-year old experiment to develop a special alloy. The calibreís hairspring is made from this alloy, bringing greater shock resistances and being more anti-magnetic than any standard alloy. The additional stress due to high frequency is buffered by redesigned lever, pallets and escape-wheel, resulting in increased longevity. Thereís also Spron 530 that makes the calibreís mainspring, enabling it to withstand a stronger torque; essential for the high-frequency balance. All that is viewable down the window of sapphire making for the larger part of the case-back; the name Grand Seiko Mens Automatic Watches shows on the winding rotor. Boldly engraved letters inlaid with gold; the sapphire window showcases the elegance of the high-quality craftsmanship through functional details visible from all angles.

Lastly, the Special:

Steeply sloped, polished and stylized, the GS receives zaratsu treatment - the blade- polishing method of yore. A rotating tin plate does that, placed at a very precise angle, creating a mirror finish, even on the fine bevels of the lugs.

All in all:

Solid, lightweight with a supple and rich leather band, the functional details of the Seiko 5 Automatic Menís Watch harmonizes with the carefully crafted aesthetic abundance, making it a GS to be lured at.
