Blue Ceramic Hi-Beat GMT 36000
Limited Edition of 350pcs

The Black Ceramic Models made its debut in 2016. It was the first Grand Seiko series to incorporate zirconia ceramic, a unique material that is seven times harder than stainless steel. As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations for Caliber 9S, zirconia ceramic returns in stunning Grand Seiko blue for the Hi-Beat GMT 36000 Limited Edition. Never before has the color of this resilient material been so vibrant. The remarkable scratch resistance and durability of zirconia ceramic mean that this watch will retain its pristine beauty for many, many years to come.

The blue design motif resonates through every element of the watch. Complementing the subtly patterned dial in Grand Seiko blue are the blue indexes and tempered steel 24-hour hand. The bracelet and case are also executed with blue ceramic elements.

The dial carries the brand monogram, GS, and the caliber name, 9S, repeated in a pattern that radiates out from the center. The dial has a softly textured feel that adds warmth to the whole design.

The hour markers are in blue but their surfaces are coated in LumiBrite to create a nuanced accent to the dial. The hour and minute hands have Grand Seiko’s characteristic sharp edges and are also accented with LumiBrite to ensure visibility in any light conditions, day or night. In recognition of the watch’s superior accuracy, the name "SPECIAL" appears at the 6 o’clock position on the dial.

Even the oscillating weight, visible through the sapphire case back, is in blue, thanks to an anodic oxidation process applied to the titanium section. The Grand Seiko lion emblem is in 18k gold, set into the oscillating weight.

The case and the bracelet are constructed from high-intensity titanium and blue zirconia ceramic. The strength of the ceramic parts is balanced by the lightness of the titanium to ensure that the watch is supremely comfortable to wear. Because of its lightweight and its superior water resistance, the inner case is also made of titanium.
