The Grand Seiko Hi-Beat SBGH267 is perhaps the most collectible Grand Seiko in today’s market. Also known as the “Whirlpool”, it has a beautiful dial pattern of a spiral engraving intertwined with the letters of the Grand Seiko logo and mark of Daini Seikosha, who developed the first Hi-Beat movement.
The watch was limited to only 1500 pieces and was originally priced at $6,300. Yet values have skyrocketed on the secondary market. Our conservative estimate places the value at $7,500, but this market for this watch is difficult to track as it rarely comes up for sale. Within the past few months, we’ve seen sellers asking as high as $13,000 to $15,000.
Would you pay nearly double retail to own this coveted and limited Grand Seiko?
