Grand Seiko Corporation of America launched the USA GS9 Club, an exclusive community for avid Grand Seiko collectors and it’s first-ever e-commerce site for US-based consumers.
Originating in Japan, the GS9 Club is a membership organization created specifically for watch enthusiasts who purchased a Grand Seiko timepiece from a Grand Seiko Boutique, Salon or Mastershop.
Members of the community can enjoy private access to special events, gifts and exclusive content.
Launching an e-commerce site is a significant milestone for Grand Seiko as the watch manufacturer continues to grow its footprint rapidly in the US.
Grand Seiko seeks to educate consumers on its intricate and detailed watchmaking, with a keen focus on the expert craftsmanship that goes into each timepiece, cutting-edge technology, and its Japanese heritage.
The GS9 Club will serve as a community for watch aficionados to connect with the brand and a platform to learn more about Grand Seiko, the art of watchmaking and the spirit of Takumi. The club will primarily exist in a virtual environment until it is safe for members to congregate for in-person events.
To celebrate its launch, GS9 Club members will enjoy special access to Grand Seiko’s newest US Limited Edition watch, the SBGE263.
Brice Le Troadec, President at Grand Seiko Corporation of America, commented: “We are excited to introduce the GS9 Club in the US after its growing success in Japan.
“Right now, more than ever, it is important to continue to engage with our most loyal and dedicated customers and provide them with a platform to discover the brand in a new way and fully immerse themselves into the Grand Seiko family.”
GS9 Club membership is only open to Grand Seiko owners who purchased a watch from a Grand Seiko Boutique or an authorized dealer on or after March 23, 2017.
