This re-created model preserves the design of the first Grand Seiko launched in 1960, incorporating the manual winding mechanical Caliber 9S64. The combination of case, wristband, and embossed Grand Seiko logo strongly evoke the style of the original model. It is offered in 18k yellow gold. The entire case is in gold, in place of the 80-micron gold–filled case used in the original.
The dual-curved sapphire crystal is loyal to the original shape and gives the re-creation the same pleasingly gentle profile. The gentle curve of the domed dial toward the outer perimeter of the dial lends the watch its classic look, which is enhanced by the dual sapphire crystal.
