Grand Seiko's Spring Drive might be the brand's most famous product, but the 9F quartz movement that sits in this watch isn't far behind. It debuted in 1993 as the finest quartz movement, capable of powering much heavier watch hands than its contemporaries were able to handle allowing Seiko to use its trademark dauphine hands. Unlike most quartz movements, the 9F was also built to last a lifetime. It was sealed against dust, and had a built-in regulation system that allowed watchmakers to adjust the rate in the highly unlikely event that the watch failed to keep time.

This watch is in excellent condition, with hairline scratches on the sides of the case. The bracelet is near-mint with no noticeable marks.

Comes with inner and outer box set, hang tag, original purchase receipt, instruction manual, spare black leather strap with Seiko buckle in good used condition.

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.
