Grand Seiko Begins A New Journey With The New Ladies Automatic Winding Series

GrandSeiko launched the 9S25 new self-winding movement at the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show 2018, designed for women’s watches. Today, GrandSeiko is proud to announce the launch of another new movement, the 9S27, and a series of five exquisitely designed watches for women. With the launch of these five watches, GrandSeiko will start a new era of women’s watches.

New Lady GrandSeiko Watch

Thin and efficient, perfect combination

   The new GrandSeiko 9S27 self-winding mechanical movement strikes a perfect balance between high performance and a slim case, a achievement that can only be achieved by a true watch manufacturer. It has excellent performance, accuracy of up to +8 to -3 seconds per day, and a power reserve of up to 50 hours under full chain conditions. The vibration frequency is 8 rpm, the movement diameter is only 19.4 mm, and the thickness is only 4.49 mm. It is suitable for wearing on each wrist. The appearance of each watch is equally slim and elegant.

Clearly polished through the sapphire crystal case back

Thanks to the superior MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) technology, the escape wheel can be specially designed into the shape of five petals

   Each movement is handmade, assembled and adjusted by artisans located in the Hiraishi Advanced Timepiece Workshop in northern Japan, just like all other GrandSeiko mechanical watches, to the highest level of craftsmanship possible. The hairspring uses the latest Spron610 alloy, and the pallet fork and escape wheel are manufactured using MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) technology. Each watch undergoes a strict 17-day test procedure.

Five watches in stainless steel and 18K gold

Mother-of-pearl dial engraved with diamonds

   This series includes five watches, two of which are made of stainless steel and three of which are made of 18K gold. Two stainless steel versions with a diameter of 27.8 mm show the best of GrandSeiko. The case is polished with Zaratsu (grinding method) to show GrandSeiko’s signature high-quality gloss. The second hand is hand-fired blue steel hands, and the minute and hour hands are treated with hairline grinding technology. Visible even in the weakest light. One uses a scented brown dial with shading inspired by the linen pattern, while the other uses a mother-of-pearl dial and diamond-cut hour markers. The three 18K gold models have a diameter of 28.7 mm. The cases are available in white, yellow and rose gold. The bezel is embedded with 42 diamonds. The mother-of-pearl dial is embedded with 12 diamonds. There is also a larger diamond set on the crown.

   This series of watches equipped with the 9S27 movement will be launched in June, opening a new chapter in the history of GrandSeiko.
