Grand Seiko Paris Vendôme Boutique Limited Editions, References SBGK011G and SBGK013G

In June 2020, Grand Seiko opened its boutique in Paris to expand its brand presence in the international market. It was designed by famed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. Located at 7 Place Vendôme in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, it is the largest Grand Seiko boutique in the world. To commemorate this milestone, the Japanese luxury watch label launched two new models from its Elegance collection.

The Paris Vendôme boutique is offering a wide range of Grand Seiko timepieces including creations produced especially to celebrate the brand’s sixtieth anniversary, as well as two exclusive models reserved for this new Parisian setting.

Among the two exclusive Paris Vendôme boutique watches, SBGK011G features a 950 platinum case and SBGK013G comes with an 18K rose gold case. Each version is limited to 10 pieces.

They are equipped with the Cal. 9S63, a hand-wound flat movement with a small seconds function at 9 o’clock and a power reserve at 3 o’clock. Visible through the sapphire crystal exhibition back, this caliber provides a power reserve of 72 hours.

The white dial is adorned with a distinct pattern inspired by Parisian cobblestones. The small seconds hand at 9 o’clock is blue-green to match the color of the Vendôme column.

Perfect alliance of technical mastery and sober elegance, these watches are unique to the Grand Seiko Paris Vendôme boutique. They feature 39mm diameter cases, and “EDITION LIMITEE PLACE VENDOME” is engraved on the back of the watches.

The Grand Seiko Paris boutique edition timepieces are provided with crocodile leather straps. Along with each model, the brand is offering an additional crocodile strap in blue-green color, inspired by the tone of the Vendôme column.
