Japanese watches


Citizen Signature Grand Touring Automatic Japanese watches

With its borrowed shape and an outrageously high price tag, the new Citizen Signature Grand Touring Automatic leaves, um, a very strange taste in your mouth. Although the Japanese brand's desire to make some money on an easily recognizable design of a watch that many lust for, but only a few can actually afford is somewhat understandable, it is really a shame to see this sort of trick played by such a respectable manufacturer.


Casio G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400 Japanese watches

Although Casio's positioning of the new G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400 watch as a "survival" tool looks a little bit too far-fetched, the gadget still deserves a certain degree of attention. Sporting a long list of useful functions that millions of fans of the series are already quite familiar with, the Rangeman also sports their famous Triple Sensor system that makes it especially useful for hikers, forest tourists and, perhaps, even soldiers and other professionals who need a reliable and durable tactical watch.


Seiko 30th Anniversary Speedmaster Chronograph JDM (Ref. SCED003) by Giorgetto Giugiaro Japanese watches / Quartz watches

This one is good news for numerous fans of the Alien franchise that are also into watch collecting business. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of their partnership with the Italian industrial designer Giorgetto Giugiaro (this gentleman of many virtues is also responsible for such works of art as the iconic DeLorean DMC-12, BMW Nazca C2 and 1972 Maserati Merak), the watchmaking branch of the Japanese brand Seiko has introduced a limited edition Seiko 30th Anniversary Speedmaster Chronograph JDM (Ref. SCED003) that looks almost like a re-issue of the famous "Bishop watch" from 1986 Aliens blockbuster.


Grand Seiko Caliber 9F 20th Anniversary Limited Edition (Ref. SBGX103) Japanese watches / Quartz watches

The famous Grand Seiko line of expensive timekeepers has recently been updated with a limited edition model. Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their signature Seiko Caliber 9F, the ultra-precise quartz movement that was first brought to market back in 1993, the Japanese watchmaker introduces their new Grand Seiko Caliber 9F 20th Anniversary Limited Edition (Ref. SBGX103) wrist watch.


Casio G-Shock GA-1000-2A Aviator Japanese watches / Quartz watches

As quietly as usual, the Japanese electronics manufacturer has updated the GA-1000 series of aviation-themed shock-resistant watches. Their new Casio G-Shock GA-1000-2A features a sporty body, which is similar in its styling to that of the last year's Casio G-SHOCK GW-A1000-1ADF Smart Access watch. However, this new "aviator" sports a lot more readable dial with analogue and digital displays combined for (almost) perfect usability.


2013 Seiko SARZ033 Automatic Series Japanese watches

Although I always had an impression that the SARZ series of sporty automatic watches were sold only on the Japanese domestic market, it looks like this mildly refreshed MY 2013 Seiko SARZ033 collection will actually make it across the Pond and will probably make landfall not only in the North America, but, hopefully, here in Europe, too.


Seiko Prospex Landmaster Miura Everest 2013 (Ref. SBDB007J) Japanese watches

Seiko has released a number of limited edition models recently. For this year, the Japanese watchmaker introduces yet another rugged-looking watch. Limited to just 300 numbered pieces, the new Seiko Prospex Landmaster Miura Everest (Ref. SBDB007J) model is built to celebrate the indomitable spirit of Mr. Yuichiro Miura, a Japanese mountain climber who, being 70 years old, became the oldest man on Earth to ever climb Everest. Now, ten years later, the man prepares to reassure his position by making another go to the world's highest mountain.
