How Much is a Grand Seiko 9F Quartz Watch? 

Grand Seiko 9F watches vary in price depending on the model. The price of a Grand Seiko 9F ranges between $2,000 USD to $6,000 USD. Limited edition models are more expensive than regular models as they have distinct features and are typically made from more expensive materials.

The Grand Seiko 9F Quartz Ref. SBGX259, priced at $2,049 USD, is one of the more affordable pieces from this collection. This watch features a smaller 37mm case, which can fit comfortably on the wrists of both men and women. Its comfort lies in the sturdy, smooth stainless steel used for the case and bracelet. It is equipped with magnetic resistance, which is a handy advantage as it allows the watch to perform accurately even in areas with strong magnetic fields such as laboratories.

The Ref. SBGX259 also uses the Caliber 9F62, which has an accuracy rating of up to ±10 seconds per year. This is the perfect watch for men and women who want a simple dial with a minimalist design. The clean silver dial has a straightforward layout, with a date display at 3 o’clock that has an instant date change mechanism and sleek hour markers and hands crafted from stainless steel.

Another affordable watch is the Grand Seiko Heritage Collection Ref. SBGP009 that is priced at $2,860 USD. This classic piece comes with a champagne-colored dial and Zaratsu-polished hands and hour markers. It also has a time difference adjustment function for independent hour settings regardless of your time zone or location. 

The dial of the Ref. SBGP009 measures 40mm in diameter, which is slightly bigger and perfect for men’s wrists. The anti-reflective coating used on the inner surface of the watch is meant to give you a clearer reading of the time, especially when you are using the watch under extreme lighting conditions. Just like the other Grand Seiko 9F models, this watch has a date display located at 3 o’clock. It also features a 100-meter water resistance capacity, which is great if you love to have your wristwatch with you while enjoying water sports and activities. 

The Grand Seiko Heritage Collection 9F Quartz GMT Ref. SBGN013 is one of the top-selling watches from the 9F collection. It costs around $2,669 USD and has unique, eye-catching red accents that truly sets this watch apart from its peers. It features a professional 40mm stainless steel case and bracelet, along with a broad black dial. The dial’s GMT (“Greenwich Mean Time”) hand comes in a vibrant red color with a 24-hour scale. 

The Ref. SBGN013 also comes with a simple square date display that blends well with the minimalist aesthetic of the dial. This is a great men’s watch for those who love sophistication and meticulous finishes. You should also pay attention to the signature Grand Seiko logo delicately applied on the three-fold clasp, which is used to open and close the bracelet. 

If you are itching for a watch that shines with a pop of color, you can consider the Grand Seiko 9F Quartz Ref. SBGX265. This $2,049 USD timepiece comes with a 37mm stainless steel case. It is equipped with the Caliber 9F62, and has an anti-magnetism feature that protects the watch from being rendered inaccurate by strong magnetic fields. 

This is a round-shaped piece with a beautiful sunray blue dial. It is protected by a sapphire crystal glass that has a layer of anti-reflective coating, ensuring that you will have a clear reading of time and giving the watch a certain degree of scratch-resistance when used outdoors. The 100-meter water resistance rating is also part of its functions, along with the stainless steel bracelet which provides a tighter, more comfortable grip during extreme activities. 

Lastly, the Grand Seiko 9F Quartz Ref. SBGX263, which costs around $2,169 USD, is also highly reliable and durable. This model is incorporated with a 205mm bracelet that has a secure three-fold clasp. The watch has a crystal mirror surface with a satin finish that is resistant to distortion with a satin finish, emphasizing the presence and sophisticated aura of the watch. 

The Ref. SBGX263’s features consist of a 37mm screw-back case made of durable stainless steel, along with a case back that has a lion emblem carefully engraved on it. This watch is powered by the Caliber 9F62, a quartz movement that is modern and highly reliable, and has been proven through rigorous testing during the watch’s manufacturing process. The watch also endorses great functionality with its minimalistic dial and uncomplicated functions. 

New Grand Seiko 9F Quartz in 2021

To celebrate the Grand Seiko’s 140th anniversary, the brand released the 9F86 Quartz GMT watches in 2021. One of the models released is the Grand Seiko Sport Collection Ref. SBGN023. It is a truly stand-out variant, with luxurious gold accents that mark it as a limited edition timepiece. 

The 9F86 Quartz GMT watches are designed with rugged shapes and sharp Zaratsu-polished surfaces, showing off the appearance of powerful sports watches. They come with the highest precision and durability along with supreme legibility, which is a hallmark of Grand Seiko. You can tell that these are intended to be men’s watches because of their larger case sizes and appearances that portray crispness and sharpness along the ridges. 

These 2021 Grand Seiko 9F Quartz watches come with striking two-toned dial rings. These allow you to read the night and day hours accurately and without any reflections or glares, especially in broad daylight. The hour hand, minute hand and indices also feature the luminous LumiBrite technology that provides greater legibility at night. The case back of these 2021 watches also carry the Grand Seiko logo, made from 18K yellow gold, and individual serial numbers to mark their legitimacy.

Grand Seiko 9F Quartz History and Design Detail

Every Grand Seiko watch possesses the quality hallmarks of the brand: high precision, excellent durability, and great legibility. A lion logo, which has been the brand’s symbol since 1960, is placed in the case back of each watch. It symbolizes Grand Seiko as the “King” of watches, imbuing each Grand Seiko timepiece with the most advanced practical features available. 

The original design of Grand Seiko watches was inspired by the Japanese idea of beauty, which has remained a core ideal of the brand. The Japanese perceive beauty as the increasing scale between light and shadow, and they rarely use black and white as extremes. Grand Seiko used this ideal of beauty to develop a unique design language with polished smooth surfaces as the key element of their timepieces. That is why Grand Seiko watches revolve around the concept of a “sparkle of quality”, which is shown through the watchmaker’s use of light and reflections in every detail. 

Simplicity, purity, and practicality are also some of the key principles of Grand Seiko. Most of their watches manifest this by showcasing easy-to-use functions and minimalist designs, especially on the dials. The hands and the markers of Grand Seiko watches are designed to reflect rays of light, clearly and crisply distinguishing them from other practical watches. 

Hand craftsmanship is also one of the key elements in the brand’s design process. Most of the quartz movements used in Grand Seiko watches are assembled entirely by hand. Grand Seiko timepieces’ variety of practical functions and aesthetic designs are combined by two experts that are skilled in watchmaking. The designs of Grand Seiko watches are meant to be timeless, and passed on from generation to generation. 

Are Grand Seiko 9F Quartz Watches Worth the Investment?

Grand Seiko is undeniably a world-leading brand in watchmaking. More than just a name, it has proven its products to be highly reliable and durable. Aside from that, here are the main reasons why Grand Seiko 9F Quartz is truly worth your purchase:

Unrivaled Quality.

The innovative and advanced technologies used in Grand Seiko’s watches are from the Shinshu Watch Studio. It was their creation of superior technology and Grand Seiko’s excellent craftsmanship that resulted in the Japanese brand’s first-ever quartz timepiece in 1988, which significantly out-performed quartz pieces from other brands that had come before it. Grand Seiko watches highlight sharply defined edges and seamless mirror finishes that are the signatures of this watch manufacturer.

Advanced Technology.

A normal quartz movement will only move its seconds hand from one stop to the next. With the more advanced 9F quartz movement, however, the seconds hand can move two consecutive steps per second, which is prompted by two successive pulse signals. This innovative 9F quartz movement also goes beyond the usual standard of the temperature correction system by consuming extremely low levels of power. It works by integrating the low-drain Twin-Pulse Control System to extend the watch’s battery life of three years.

High Precision. 

One of the most unique features of the 9F quartz watches is the crown’s movement, which can reduce the equivalency of the watch to 20 minutes. This makes it easier for the wearers to adjust the time with enhanced precision. 

Grand Seiko 9F Quartz: Quality at its Finest 

The Grand Seiko 9F Quartz watches may not be one of the most dashing watches when it comes to design but these timepieces are made with incredibly high quality and subtle yet valuable details. No matter the occasion, they can work effectively and efficiently as daily companions without the need to constantly maintain and repair. Most importantly, they are proven to be 100% accurate all the time.
