The re-creation versions of the Grand Seiko 62GS are powered by Seiko’s mechanical Caliber 9S65, with automatic winding and a 72-hour power reserve. There is one model in steel, and one each in yellow gold, rose gold and white gold. Inherited features from the vintage timepiece include the lion emblem on the caseback and “Diashock” logo (referring to Seiko’s shock protection technology) on the dial. The steel-case version even features a dial in the same color as the original. All four of these watches come on crocodile straps with buckles matching the case material. The steel version is limited to 600 pieces, priced at 4,300 euros; the gold versions are limited to 100 pieces each, priced between 16,100 and 17,000 euros.
The more “modern” Grand Seiko 62GsS offers two watches equipped with Seiko’s hi-beat 36,000-vph Caliber 9SG5 and two others outftted with the brand’s Spring Drive Caliber 9R65. All have larger cases than the vintage re-creations (40 mm in diameter as opposed to 37.6 mm) and all have bracelets rather than straps. The watches with the hi-beat mechanical movement have stainless steel cases with white or brown dial options each is a limited edition — 1,000 pieces for the white-dial version and 700 pieces for the black dial — priced at 1,000 euros. The watches with Spring Drive movements have titanium cases (and bracelets) and are limited editions of 1,000 pieces (white-dial version) and 700 pieces (blue-dial version). Both are priced at 5,900 euros.
