The Grand Seiko SBGW033 was released in 2011 to celebrate the 130th anniversary of Grand Seiko and was a reissue of the First Grand Seiko that was originally produced by Suwa Seikosha in 1960. It was made in a limited edition of 1300 pieces. Unlike the 2017 reissue, the SBGW253, which featured a larger 38mm case size, the SBGW033 case diameter is 36mm which is the same size as the original Grand Seiko First (ie. GS1st). As such, most GS fans consider the SBGW033 to be one of the most faithful reissue of the GS1st out of all the modern reissues that would be produced throughout the 2010's. As a testament to its collectability and grail status, a full set SBGW033 made a splash in the 2021 winter auction scene as it sold for over USD 20,000.

From its beveled lugs, raised Grand Seiko logo on the dial, "S" marked crown and the engraved gold lion medallion on the case back, the vintage inspired SBGW033 is executed perfectly. The egg shell white dial, blue steeled hands, and the modern Grand Seiko caliber 9S64 is a welcome upgrade from the original GS1st. All in all, the SBGW033 is a simple time only watch executed to perfection and finished to the highest quality.

This Grand Seiko SBGW033 is in overall great condition. The watch comes from its original owner. The case is overall sharp and the bevels and original shape is in tact. There are only minor surface scratches throughout. The caseback lion medallion is in excellent shape with case back engraving lettering's clearly visible. The watch comes with its original GS strap and buckle. The movement is currently running at an excellent +4.4 seconds/day. The watch comes with its Grand Seiko inner/outer box, procedure manual, inspection certificate, and other papers (excluding the guarantee which the owner kept due to privacy reason).
