Description

This timepiece is inspired by the beauty of the Shizukuishi region in Japan, where Grand Seiko mechanical movements are created.

The design represents the Nature of Time – a uniquely Japanese spirituality where time is viewed as nature itself with each fleeting moment, minute and second a unique expression, unveiled through light and shadow.

The dial pattern echoes the beauty of the white birch forests which surround the Grand Seiko Shizukuishi studio - with its supremely efficient hi-beat movement – the finest mechanical calibre that Grand Seiko have ever created, the 9SA5.

In 1998, the 9S mechanical movement opened a new chapter in the Grand Seiko story, this new calibre represents a watchmaking advance just as important. 9SA5 is an entirely new movement with a power reserve increase from 55 hours to 80 hours compared to our previous hi-beat movements and a 15% slimmer design which is both more accurate and robust.

This timepiece is within the ‘Series 9’ or ‘Kyu’ collection – watches which epitomise the Grand Seiko endeavour to create the most precise, durable, wearable and beautiful watch possible. ‘Kyu’ in Japanese means both 9 - the highest number possible – and ultimate, representing the aim for the ultimate in watchmaking.

Grand Seiko: the relentless quest for precise timekeeping from the pinnacle of Seiko Watch Corporation’s in-house manufacture. With leading watchmaking, durability and legibility, every Grand Seiko is still handmade in Japan by elite craftsmen and women.
