A NEW GRAND SEIKO HI-BEAT 36000 GMT CREATION, INSPIRED BY THE BEAUTY OF THE PEACOCK





October 13, 2017, Bangalore: The peacock is a bird that has inspired many ideas and myths throughout history. The ancients believed that peacocks symbolized immortality, while other cultures have seen renewal and even the ability to be all-seeing in this beautiful bird. All over the world, the peacock continues to intrigue and fascinate mankind. Once seen, a peacock’s plumage is never forgotten and its beauty is universally acknowledged.



The dial of the latest Grand Seiko Hi-beat 36000 captures this beauty. With its deep green colour and stamped pattern, the dial is at once striking and yet subtle. The case and movement are the same as in the celebrated watch that won the "Petite Aiguille” award prize at the Grand Prix de Genève in 2014.


The hi-beat GMT movement 9S86 is assembled in the Shizukuishi Watch Studio where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are manufactured and assembled, by hand, by the studio’s craftsmen and women.


In both performance and appearance, it expresses the very best of Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking. The caliber has a high accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds a day and a power reserve of 55 hours. The GMT hand can be used as a dual time indicator with the hour hand being adjustable independently as the time of day hands continues to mark time. It is the perfect watch for the international traveller.


The case is a contemporary re-interpretation of the acclaimed 44GS design from 1967 that set the Grand Seiko style. Like every Grand Seiko watch, it offers highly polished, distortion-free surfaces, razor edged hands for high legibility and perfect comfort on the wrist.
