An inside look at the Seiko Morioka Watch Studio...

The 9S55 movement used in this watch is regulated to six positions and temperature. I believe the accuracy to be well within +5/-3 secs per day but I could be wrong. The movement is hand assembled at Seiko Instruments Morioka watch studio.


Here is a sample of the factory accuracy report enclosed with the watch as part of its document set:

In comparison to a Seiko SARB, I think this Grand Seiko is a bit smaller but not by much. It is a work of art :-*


The SARB range borrows quite a bit of styling cues from these Grand Seikos. It is a timeless and classic watch.


If your end goal is to keep 2-3 nice watches in your case, I can see this Grand Seiko fitting that role quite nicely.

Hey mark hey Frank :) Thanks for the info Frank I've read it all! ;D

Mark I just want to hear from an owner that's all. Just his/her overall opinion of how it's worn during the time they have owned it. Not a very common watch I like that. Maybe there aren't any owners here.

It's almost Fri yeah! O0
