A newly designed bezel provides high accuracy and performance, and enables easy disassembly for maintenance.

I have several automatic Grand Seiko pieces and all of them are fantastic in fit, finish, accuracy, and quality departments. As an avid watch collector I am always hesitant to pay more than $3000 for a quartz movement watch but I have to admit the SBGX115 is a fantastic product and well worth the price of admission.Unknown
