Grand Seiko SBGR081 Limited Edition 44GS
Released in 2013 to celebrate Seiko's 100 years of watchmaking, SBGR081 was limited to 1200 pieces only. The watch is powered by Cal.9S65, a 28800bph movement with an outstanding power reserve of 72 hours. Remarkably, SBGR081 was also the first GS in which the case was directly inspired by the legendary 44GS. The diameter was increased to 40mm from the original's 37mm to follow the modern trend. Seiko redesigned the sides of the case to not only fit the thicker movement, but also add layers to Zaratsu Polishing . This new 44GS case was highly praised by the market and thus was available for other non-limited models in the following years.
