With just 1,000 ever made, this Grand Seiko was produced to celebrate Seiko’s own 130th Anniversary.  Model reference SBGT039 or 9F83-0AK0.


Model SBGT039 was introduced in 2011, 130 years since Seiko was founded in 1881,  This watch though was not sold until July 2013, as shown on the warranty card that we have double checked matches this watches serial number.


Grand Seiko watches are all beautifully finished, and being the special edition this has a few extras.  The dial is covered is the S Logo which is subtle but adds an extra layer.  The blued second hand is complemented with blue GS applied logo on the dial too.  Inside the stainless steel case back is a variation on the prized 9F quartz movement.  Not only are these highly accurate, but they have an instant date change and the SBGT039 has the day of the week too in either English or Kanji.  The quartz movement also allows a slimmer case design than the auto or spring drive Grand Seiko models.  We will install a brand new battery before sending the watch out to the new owner.  The bracelet is quite long and our sister website, SpareLinks.com, may have extra links if required.  The bracelet has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath.  The box is bespoke to this limited edition.

This watch will be supplied with the original inner and outer presentation boxes, papers, a spare link for the bracelet and our Certificate of Authenticity.

This watch has been checked against the Watch Register and has not been reported as lost, stolen or implicated in fraud, and a copy of that certificate will also be included.
