One of the few quibbles Grand Seiko fans in particular, and watch enthusiasts in general, have with Grand Seikois the relative thickness of the watches. To some degree, this is a consequence of Grand Seiko’s decision to go with quite robust construction for their movements, but the desire for Grand Seiko and value in a more slim watch had in general remained unsatisfied, until the recent introduction of four new in the Elegance collection, which use a newly introduced hand-wound caliber. The new movement is the caliber 9S63, which is configured with a power reserve at 3:00 and a sub-seconds dial at 9:00. This yields wristwatches with a 39mm diameter and a height of 11.6mm, versus a bit over 13mm for a typical Grand Seiko time-and-date .
