About Grand SEIKO SBGH267
For the 20th anniversary of the mechanical Grand Seiko caliber 9S, several limited editions have been released. While two of these – the VFA model in platinum, and the Special in gold – are definitely at the higher end of the Grand Seiko price spectrum, SBGH267 is right at expected at normal steel Grand Seiko prices.
Grand Seiko is celebrating several anniversaries this year. It's the 20th anniversary of the caliber 9S, which in 1998 was the first mechanical Grand Seiko movement in 40 years; it's also the 50th anniversary of Grand Seiko Hi-Beat. Seiko's first 36,000 vph movement, the 61GS, launched in 1968. Of the three limited editions being introduced this year, this is the most affordable, but it's no less handsome than its platinum and gold stablemates.
The SBGH267 Hi-Beat shares the same design features as the precious metal models, including the Zaratsu-polished case, and the dial motif. However, the steel model's dial (which like the others, uses a spiral engraving intertwined with the letters of the Grand Seiko logo, and the mark of Daini Seikosha, which developed the first Hi-Beat movement and is known today as Seiko Instruments Inc.) is a deep blue color.
