Grand Seiko’s Australian Exclusive
Run, don’t walk, to secure this limited-edition newcomer that tells a uniquely Australian story.
Don’t fear pink.
It’s a statement worn with even greater force given Grand Seiko’s release of its stunning newcomer, ‘SBGJ269’.
Better still, the new release, indeed its chosen dial hue, proves an Australian exclusive inspired by the fauna of this rugged country.
Available from today, the design is formed around the use of a unique colour mimicking the beautiful pinks of the flannel flower; the red of the GMT reflecting the colour of the flower buds before they bloom.
Like all nature to inform GS designs – particularly within the Elegance Collection – a backstory flourishes and here it rests and grows, quite literally, in the NSW Blue Mountains. Still ravaged and blackened by the disastrous fires of 2019, a beacon of hope shone through – a blossoming pink bud, the Pink Flannel Flower, and an incredible tale of resilience.
Powered by GS’ acclaimed Hi-Beat 36000 GMT calibre 9S86 movement – visible through the sapphire caseback – the 39.5mm piece is available on a stainless steel bracelet aligned to the case material and boasts a decent 55-hour power reserve.
As with most of what GS presents, there is a wonderful and alluring simplicity in design here – one paired to exceptional engineering.
The SBGJ269, held on a very tight run of just 50 pieces, is available from today at Australian Grand Seiko boutiques and select retail partners.
