When we think of Grand Seiko replica watches, it’s easy to associate them with classic but slightly left-of-centre designs: architectural case lines and instantly recognisable designs. Which is why this watch was such a surprise when we first saw it — it’s a deeply traditional dress watch design. A simple round case, in yellow gold no less (though there are steel and platinum versions too), seems like it’s from a different time, which makes perfect sense, as the watch, the SBGW252, is a re-creation of the first Grand Seiko from 1960.
And of all the versions, this yellow gold number has to be the closest to that 1960 original, and not just because of the yellow gold case material. The creamy opaline dial, simple double baton hour markers and shining gold dauphine hands all paint a picture of mid-century modishness. The very slim alligator strap is also stylistically apt.
It’s important to note that while the SBGW252 looks like it might be from 1960, it’s been updated where it counts. The glass is sapphire, the case is a slightly larger-than-original 38mm, and the movement is the manually wound 9S64.
In 2016, Seiko replica watches surprised watch lovers and collectors when they launched the Presage collection internationally. The Presage collection sits somewhere below the Grand Seiko collection but above the very inexpensive Seiko entry-level models and is a collection that consists only of mechanical pieces. For me, the Presage collection is home to some of Seiko’s most bang-for-buck pieces. Some examples include the Seiko Presage Enamel collection, which, as you might have guessed from the name, is a collection of watches with fired enamel dials. Watches with enamel dials aren’t new but what made the Seiko Presage Enamel collection watches was the prices at which they were offered. To continue this tradition, Seiko has just announced the new Presage Blue Enamel Limited Edition SPB069 watch, and boy is it a beauty.
The Seiko Presage Blue Enamel Limited Edition SPB069 watch comes in a moderately sized 40.5mm-wide stainless steel case with mostly polished surfaces. Thickness is 12.4mm, and the somewhat large crown is signed with an “S.” Despite the watch’s dressy style, it has a rated water resistance of 100m, making it highly suitable for daily wear.
The watch features deep blue dial Seiko fake watches that is inspired by the Japanese love of the moon, the brand tells us. In the past, Japanese nobility would have tsukimi ceremonies where they would gather under the full moon for merrymaking. It is such an important occasion that some castles, such as Matsumoto Castle, would be constructed with special moon-viewing rooms. Even today, moon-viewing is a widely observed activity throughout Japan.
The blue enamel is made by master enamel craftsman Mitsuru Yokozawa and his team, who also worked on earlier Presage watches with enamel dials. Yokozawa first began working with enamel in 1971 and has vast experience with the material, allowing him to create a technique that can efficiently and reliably produce fired enamel dials.
The dial of the Presage Blue Enamel Limited Edition is made in the same fashion as grand feu enamel dials on high-end Swiss watches. Enamel glaze is carefully applied onto the dial and then fired in a kiln. The end result is a deep blue dial that changes color depending on the light.
To complement the blue enamel dial, the Presage Blue Enamel Limited Edition Seiko copy watches come with a matte blue crocodile strap and features large white Roman numeral hour markers that the brand says are based on Seiko’s first pocket watch, the “Time Keeper” from 1895. It also has spade and whip style hour and minute hands coated in white lacquer. But what’s really cool is the seconds hand, which features a small golden crescent moon counterweight that makes it seem as if the moon is sweeping across the night sky.
The movement within is Seiko’s ever-reliable caliber 6R15, which has all the features you would expect from a modern automatic caliber. It hacks and can be wound by hand, and it also features a slightly above average power reserve of 50 hours. My only complaint is that it beats at a slightly slower rate of 3Hz, which means the seconds hand doesn’t move quite as smoothly as say an ETA-2824 or Sellita SW200. The movement is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. Again, the Presage Blue Enamel Limited Edition pays homage to the moon by having a gold crescent of the moon applied to the sapphire caseback.
Our last few Grand Seiko leather strap replica watches events at Topper featured Grand Seiko’s legendary Japanese craftsmen performing impressive demonstrations disassembling and reassembling their esteemed calibres. This Thursday, May 11, 2017, will be a different type of event. Our good friend, Seiko USA’s Rusty Rowlands, will present prototypes of the new 2017 models released at Baselworld and discuss the new direction and hugely popular rebranding of Grand Seiko.

Also on display will be the new Sport series models, the new larger size three-hand automatic (SBGR305), and the new Hi-Beat divers.
We will have most of the 2017 international collection available including the new “Grand Seiko replica watches” dial treatments of the best-selling classics like the new SBGA211 “Snowflake” and the SBGR261. You have likely seen them online, but this will be your first chance in California to see them in the metal.
