Seiko has been making watches since 1913, and to mark their 100th anniversary they have re-introduced a limited edition version of the first Grand Seiko — the Grand Seiko 44GS from 1967. Named after the caliber 4420 which originally powered this model, it was the first model produced by Daini Seikosha (whom the company is named after).
The limited edition timepiece, launched in Baselworld last week features a modern hand wound in-house caliber 9S64 movement. The 8-beat caliber (28,800 vph) (+5 to -3 seconds day) has 24 jewels with a 72-hour power reserve. Magnetic resistance is 4,800 A/m. Water resistance is 30 meters.
