To commemorate the 20th anniversary of its 9S movement, Grand Seiko went all out to design a now-iconic timepiece. Starting with the movement itself, Grand Seiko gave the rotor a unique design with a titanium and tungsten rotor, treated to make it a rich blue colour. The case was newly designed for the reference but still featured hallmark GS design elements, like wide bevels and zaratsu polishing. Last but not least, the dial was rendered also in blue, with a repeating "GS" motif that extended concentrically from the centre, giving this watch its 'whirlpool' nickname.

GRAND SEIKO

In 1967, a Japanese company shattered a century of Swiss supremacy in the watch world. During the Neuchatel Observatory trials (a competition that sought to find the most accurate watch movements), Seiko and its subsidiaries took second and third place as one of the best movement manufacturers in the world, only losing the top spot to Omega. The following year, the trials were permanently cancelled. When the trials returned in 2009, one rule was added: "All parts used to build the movement must be made within Europe."

This origin story may sound highly dramatic, but it's how Grand Seiko was born. Today, the brand has gone from strength to strength. While it made its name shocking the industry with its highly accurate chronometer movements, Grand Seiko continued innovating by releasing the 9F Quartz, Hi-Beat and Spring Drive movements.
