The Marinemaster by Seiko is the same age as our nation. With five decades of water experience, you can bet it has plenty of endurance.

Grand Seiko has been a sweetly kept secret by Seiko corporation until its international release a few years ago. It remains the highlight of Seiko’s fine watchmaking, with a powerful Hi-Beat movement that keeps it precise, a GMT function integrated into the 9S86 movement and continuous hour adjustment along with quick hour changes for travel time zones. The lion roars strongly in this watch.
