Description

This limited-edition timepiece is inspired by the beauty of the Suwa Lake near the Shinsu studio where Grand Seiko Spring Drive is created and is one of 2,021 pieces available worldwide.

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 reflects the gentle ripples of the peaceful Suwa lake and this serenity belies its forward-looking accuracy inside, featuring the new Spring Drive movement, 20 years on from its 1999 launch.

The 9RA2 Spring Drive has been updated for an increased accuracy of +/- 10 seconds per month, with a longer power reserve of 120 hours, with a reduced case depth by 0.8mm compared to our Calibre 9R6 series, and enhanced shock resistance – making it slim, practical and comfortable to wear.  The case of SLGA007G is a new design standard for Grand Seiko, produced in the 60th anniversary year.

This timepiece is powered by the brand’s iconic Spring Drive movement, one of the most significant developments in recent watchmaking which took 28 years to develop. With a superior level of precision, Spring Drive generates energy with a mainspring combined with an electronic regulator, never requiring a battery change. Seiko Watch Corporation pioneered Spring Drive which is only available in their timepieces.

Every Grand Seiko features signature high standards of precision, durability and legibility, handcrafted in Japan by Takumi artisans. Grand Seiko: beautifully, precise Japanese watchmaking, from the pinnacle of Seiko Watch Corporation’s in-house ‘manufacture.’
