Ever since it was founded in Japan, Seiko, and Grand Seiko for that matter, has desired to make the best watches available to the market. It has succeeded multiple times, as it has strived ceaselessly to do better than before and be among the world’s leaders in watchmaking innovation. The company is partly responsible for bringing Japan to international recognition when it comes to manufacturing watches, a field that was previously dominated solely by Switzerland. Today, Seiko relies on its experts, both men and women, to handle meticulously hundreds of tiny components that power a timepiece. The 9S mechanical movement is among its products, and in turn operate many watches in its repertoire.

Seiko does not skimp on quality even when it comes to its ladies’ watches that are considerably smaller in size, which is why the latest Grand Seiko for women is powered by a newly minted 9S movement, the Caliber 9S25. Besides its promised accuracy, the Grand Seiko Calibre 9S is luxurious and gorgeous in design, with versions adorned by sparkly diamonds and slim profiles.

For the ladies, the Grand Seiko Calibre 9S is a no-fuss timepiece. The watch is impressively thin although it is powered by a high performing Caliber 9S25. The movement itself is small, at only 4.49 mm in height, but it has a respectable power reserve rating of more or less 50 hours and a precision of +8 to -3 seconds. Such strong features in a tiny package is made possible with Grand Seiko’s use of microelectromechanical system engineering for the most significant components. The timepiece’s claims are not empty, you can be sure of that, thanks to the company’s insistence on subjecting it to a testing process that lasts for 17 days, the very same one that other coveted watches from the brand have undergone. Last but definitely not the least, this watch is a stunner; the small frame is accompanied by soft curves that spell elegance overall.
Ready to grab the Grand Seiko Caliber 9S for women? You better have your pocket ready as the watch does not come cheap. At $32,000.00, this is definitely a pricier option than most ladies’ watches, which even go for way less than half the Grand Seiko’s price tag.
