On SLGA007, the pattern of the rich blue dial evokes Minamo, the gentle sway of the water surface of Lake Suwa, with ripples emulating the water’s shallow waves that sparkle whenever the dial catches the light. Combined with the smooth sweeping movement of the seconds hand, a feature unique to Spring Drive, the dial demonstrates the seamless passage of time. The seconds hand and Grand Seiko letters are in a gold color, which echoes the morning sunrise shimmering on the lake’s surface.
The design language shown here was first introduced with reference SLGH002 in 2020. With its complex faceted case; large hands and prominent markers; alternating Zaratsu-polished and hairline finish; and highly ergonomic proportions, this evocative aesthetic will be an important part of Grand Seiko's Heritage Collection for years to come.
SLGA007 carries the latest Spring Drive caliber 9RA2, which offers a 120-hour power reserve and an enhanced precision rate of ±0.5 seconds per day. It inherits all the impressive performance specifications from 9RA5, but it moves the power reserve indicator away from the dial and brings it to the movement. The beauty of the movement is visible through the exhibition case back.
SLGA007 is a limited edition 2021 watches.
