A new Grand Seiko creation inspired by
the serene blue waters of Lake Suwa

Time and Nature in perfect harmony.
A Grand Seiko Spring Drive limited edition celebrates the company’s 140th anniversary.

Kintaro Hattori founded his company in 1881 and led it until his death at the age of 73 in 1934. His philosophy was that his company should be “Always one step ahead of the rest” and, while it was not created until 1960, nothing better expresses the power of his vision than Grand Seiko with its unique design, leading edge manufacturing and exquisite finishing.

Today, Grand Seiko commemorates the 140th anniversary of the foundation of Kintaro’s company with a Spring Drive watch whose dial is inspired by the calm waters of Lake Suwa that lies close to the Shinshu Watch Studio where the watch is made.

A new Grand Seiko creation inspired by the serene blue waters of Lake Suwa

The patterned dial evokes the gentle sway of the surface, or minamo, of Lake Suwa. The dial echoes the lake’s ripples and shallow waves that create a pleasing sparkle at whichever angle the dial catches the light. The seconds hand and the Grand Seiko letters are sharply defined in a gold color and echo the morning sunrise shimmering on the lake’s surface. 
The watch is powered by the new Grand Seiko Spring Drive 5 Days Caliber 9RA2, which inherits all the performance characteristics of the Spring Drive Caliber 9RA5 but the power reserve indicator is now visible through the sapphire crystal case back through which the beauty of the movement’s finishing can be observed.
This commemorative limited edition watch perfectly expresses the quiet but strong character of Grand Seiko. Its powerful hands and grooved, prominent markers ensure perfect legibility, its Zaratsu polished, distortion-free mirror finish and delicate hairline finish alternate, giving the case a quiet and harmonious glow. The case has wide lugs and a low center of gravity that ensures that the watch sits easily and securely on the wrist.

Minamo. The quiet water surface of Lake Suwa.

The softly textured dial and the sharply edged hands and indexes. A perfect contrast.

The textured pattern of the dial evokes the gentle sway of the surface, or minamo, of Lake Suwa with ripples and shallow waves that create a pleasing sparkle at whichever angle the dial catches the light. In contrast, the seconds hand and Grand Seiko letters are sharply cut and their gold color echoes the morning sunrise shimmering on the lake’s surface.

Quintessentially Grand Seiko

This commemorative limited edition watch perfectly expresses the quiet but strong character of Grand Seiko. Its powerful hands and grooved, prominent markers ensure perfect legibility, its Zaratsu polished, distortion-free mirror finish and delicate hairline finish alternate, giving the case a quiet and harmonious glow. The case has wide lugs and a low center of gravity that ensures that the watch sits easily and securely on the wrist.

SLGA007 is powered by the Grand Seiko Spring Drive 5 Days Caliber 9RA2. The movement is equipped with an "Offset Magic Lever" to reduce its thickness and incorporates two barrels to provide up to 120 hours of power reserve.The beauty of the movement reveals the uniquely Japanese aesthetic for which Grand Seiko is renowned. The delicate texture of the movement's finish reflects the frost that winter brings to the forests in Shinshu where all Spring Drive watches are made. The bridge line and the edges of the screw holes are diamond cut to reflect the light from any angle and give the movement a quiet glow when seen through the sapphire case back.
