Grand Seiko has something of a reputation for finely finished understatement. This watch is, well, a little extra. That’s not to say that the Grand Seiko SBGE248 isn’t as finely finished as you’d expect, it’s just that, thanks to its popping blue and gold colourway, this Grand Seiko isn’t under anyone’s radar.
Which, honestly, is a really good thing, because this watch is pretty exceptional. These sporty Spring Drive GMTs are already well-loved travel watches, thanks to the combination of great build, good looks and a very, very cool movement. But throwing a near-electric blue bezel and shimmering dial and yellow gold details and bezel into the equation takes this large 44mm to a whole other level of awesome. And while it might be too much for some tastes, if you’re going to travel — why not travel in style?
