New 2022 Ginza model - SBGH297

There it is a new model for Ginza. LE of 260 pieces. Sold through 5 selected GS Ginza boutiques.

- 40mm
- 62GS case
- hi beat.

Evidently a sort of Tiffany Blue take from GS. Like it or not. I do.

Price: •770.000 incl. 10% tax. Reservations start tomorrow and will probably be filled in an eyeblink. Deliveries start in June.

Well, basically for anyone who will appear to buy them in Ginza.

Cool dial and on-trend color. I would like to see IRL photos.

The Ginza street-scape on the dial is centred on Wako! Absolutely amazing!

Right so! I find this model very refreshing. Not like a GS. A really cool watch. A new, absolutely unique for GS dial!

Today many real life photos appear over IG of the new GS. As of today, 5 Ginza boutiques started taking deposits for this watch.

The more photos I see, the more I am positively intrigued by this piece. And no - I donít care it resembles tiffanies of this world. It is simply cute.

Judge yourselves, here come the photos.

I like it. Is it better than the SBGH295? Tough call

I like the idea but I feel like it could’ve been executed better. The dial just feels a little flat to me. I do hope they try this with other cities though.

This is so cool. I love the grid lines representing Ginza on the dial.

Early congrats! I understand the border control is still in place in Japan (or unless you are flying for business?), but would love to pick one up. Extremely long shot but let me try my Seiko retailer here and ask if it is even possible for me to order one. Sometimes they do receive one piece.

Here is mine! It's gorgeous. Is it nicer than the SBGH295? I'm not sure because I love that one too. Would be crazy to have both, right? Right?!

That's the way to do it! Really special to pick up a limited Ginza piece at Wako in Ginza.
