Grand Seiko GMT SBGE001

Posted by wristwatch on September 6, 2007

If you like big watches, then the SBGE001 is for you. With a 44 mm diameter, this is one monster of a watch. As with all Grand Seikos, the build quality is excellent. I dont’t own one, but was able to play with a friend’s one. I couldn’t keep my hands off it! Its just as good, if not better than those Swiss watches out there.

    Grand Seikos are normally not available outside Japan. Email Higuchi-san on how much this model would cost, he usually quotes with shipping included. Another guy was able to buy Japan only models from Ebay, read the thread below and check with them as well.


    Actually, taxes and duties differ from country to country. I personally think, its pretty strict in the UK. Here in the Philippines, I got away with paying just 20 USD for a 800 USD watch. Taxes and Duties here are usually 40% to 50% on luxury items.


    Let me know how much Higuchi quotes you, and if you do buy from him, share your experience here. Thanks.
