Hands-On: The Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 GMT Limited Edition SBGJ227 'Peacock'

This particular wristwatch was announced in October of last year, and we’ve been looking forward to getting our hands on one ever since. The Hi-Beat GMT models from Grand Seiko have proven to be quite popular and as we mentioned, a Hi-Beat GMT won the Petit Aiguille prize at the 2014 Grand Prix Horlogerie de Genève (and just imagine how good a Japanese watch has to be to win an award in Switzerland). Grand Seiko made its first 36,000 vph watch in 1968: the 61GS, which was one of a range of high beat watches made by Seiko under the Grand Seiko (there were also Lord Marvel, Lord Matic, and King Seiko high-beat models at both 28,800 vph and 36,000 vph).
