Something interesting always shines up from the mud though. And this year, it was Grand Seiko’s new SBGR305. There’s a new case in a new case material and a new movement too. But more of that in a sec… there’s also news of how Seiko sees the future for Grand Seiko.
Seiko’s President and CEO, Shinji Hattori, has announced, “…we are today taking one step further and presenting Grand Seiko as an entirely separate brand.” He went on to explain, “On all the creations we are presenting here at Baselworld, the Grand Seiko logo is at the 12 o’clock position and this will also be true for all Grand Seiko watches from now onwards.”
