The first ever Grand Seiko chronograph, Reference SBGC201 is powered by Grand Seiko’s unique Spring Drive caliber, which combines the motive force of a mainspring with the high precision of a quartz watch. It allows the watch to maintain precise timekeeping while also incorporating accurate chronograph capabilities and a GMT function, all with a three-day power reserve.
Inspired by a stop watch that was used in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, Reference SBGC201 has pushers with a unique, two-stage construction. Designed with a ready stage so that the chronograph can be armed by pressing the button half way, you’ll always get an accurate start. There is also a screw lock system on each pusher that prevents the chronograph from being activated unintentionally. The champagne dial comes to life with blued steel hands on the chronograph functions and a red-tipped GMT hand.
