Timepiece Tuesday: Grand Seiko Peacock (Limited Edition)

Nov 01, 2018
Grand Seiko “Peacock” SBGJ227

One of Grand Seiko’s most popular models is the “Peacock,” also known as the Hi-Beat 36000 GMT. Hardly a year old, the exclusive U.S. Limited Edition Grand Seiko Peacock has quickly made a name for itself. We’re proud to announce that King Jewelers has this rare masterpiece in our Nashville store. The Hi-Beat GMT models created by Grand Seiko are the most popular by a landslide. The GMT series released in 2002, and quickly became the most highly coveted wristwatch from the brand.

There are various ways to display two different time zones at once. However, a “true” GMT timepiece features a 24-hour hand and a normal hour hand which both display home time. When you travel, you will re-set the hour hand to the local time. The 24-hour hand will always be set to home time so you will automatically know if it’s AM or PM at home. The reason why most would prefer this type of complication is because it’s a more intuitive way to read local time.

Also, this watch radiates a supreme elegance with its subtly patterned deep-teal dial and gorgeously faceted indexed.  This watch has no lume feature because the beautifully polished hands almost illuminate themselves against the solid dial. A date window 3 o’clock contrasts the iconic Grand Seiko logo, resting at 12 o’clock. The casing and bracelet are crafted from high-polished and brushed stainless steel, bestowing it with a sleek elegance.

Additionally, the presentation-back casework is detailed with textured surfaces to distinguish one escapement from another. Unlike those that came before, the Grand Seiko Peacock uses caliber 9S86, showcasing a standard execution of the rotor. In appearance and accuracy, this watch demonstrates the most elite qualities in mechanical watchmaking.

This Grand Seiko watch promises supreme reliability and precision, retailing for  $6,500. King Jewelers will be revealing Grand Seiko at our 10th annual Nashville Watch Fair. Not to mention, this event brings in watch collectors from Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, Alabama, Indiana, and Arkansas.
