The first Grand Seiko from the Micro Artist Studio – Spring Drive, with an eight-day power reserve
The 9R Spring Drive 8 Days is driven by a Spring Drive, and the first

The case material is rare platinum 950, a blend containing 95% platinum. The newly developed Zaratsu polishing technique has also been used on this model to give the case a sharply defined edge and exquisite finish never before seen on a platinum case.
