Drawing inspiration from the mesmerizing skies observed near their Mt. Iwate studio, Grand Seiko unveils its latest horological marvels. Enter the stage, the ‘Sea of Clouds’ SBGJ275 and the ‘Mid-heaven’ SBGM253 – a duo of GMT models that celebrate the allure of the heavens.

In the spotlight is the ‘Sea of Clouds’ GMT, a dazzling 44.2mm timepiece that boasts a dial reminiscent of its namesake. Wrapped in stainless steel, this wrist companion features a dynamic two-tone bezel and a matching metal bracelet, all elegantly framed by an exhibition caseback. Through the dual-curved sapphire crystal, the 9S86 caliber stands proudly, with its light blue oscillating weight stealing the show. Priced at $7,600 USD, this beauty will grace wrists in a limited run of 2,000 units.

Stepping into the limelight alongside is the ‘Mid-heaven’ GMT, flaunting a sunray dial in a soothing light blue hue. Nestled within a mirror-finished case and bezel, this timepiece exudes timeless elegance. Peek through the see-through caseback, and you’ll find the tantalizing blue-hued oscillating weight, adorned with anodic oxidation treatment. Limited to 1,700 pieces, the ‘Mid-heaven’ dances to the rhythm of the 9S66 automatic movement, with a price tag of $5,600 USD.

These celestial creations will make their exclusive debut in October, available through Grand Seiko’s online and offline boutiques.
