60 Years of Grand Seiko

In the 1950s, a group of watchmakers got together with the aim of creating the very best watch, the “king” of the industry. In December 1960, that goal became a reality when the first edition was born and appropriately named Grand Seiko. It’s been 60 years (which in Japan is known as a time of renewed energy and re-birth) since that defining moment and the brand is celebrating in a big way. Grand Seiko has announced four new models, each featuring dials in the brand’s signature blue color.

Automatic Watches

Heritage Collection Hi-Beat 36000 Limited Edition – SBGH281

This men’s watch is unmistakably Grand Seiko, paying tribute to the 44GS model, a design that was the first to truly represent Grand Seiko’s inimitable Japanese style. The gold Grand Seiko symbol and red seconds hand symbolize a sunrise, a new beginning.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Scott joined Feldmar Watch Company, Inc. under the tutelage of his father, Sol. As a fourth generation family member, Scott’s forward-thinking business acumen has placed Feldmar on the cutting edge of the luxury timepiece market. Scott’s favorite part about working at Feldmar is being a part of his family’s multi-generational business and having worked alongside his father. His accomplishments are many, including the expansion and remodel of the Feldmar flagship store, as well as a second location inside The Beverly Hilton.

Since attending Santa Monica College, Scott has become an expert in the technical aspects of the timepieces sold at Feldmar. Each year, he travels to Switzerland—the watchmaking capital of the world—to attend the Baselword Watch & Jewelry Fair and build upon his extensive knowledge of this quickly-evolving industry.

Scott is very proud of the way Feldmar customers are put first: “We regularly go out of our way to meet the needs of our clients. A client once purchased a rather significant watch as a birthday gift for his brother who lived in New York. Our client asked how we were going to deliver the gift and we responded with the typical answer, we would ship it by FedEx. After we answered his question, we could tell that he wanted a more personalized experience for the delivery and offered to have it hand-delivered by one of our associates. He lit up at the thought, and so off went one of our associates to New York City for the day to hand-deliver the gift.”
