Singapore, October 21, 2023 - Grand Seiko proudly presents SBGH327, a limited-edition timepiece that beautifully captures the essence of Mount Fuji's "Red Fuji" phenomenon. This remarkable watch marks a historic milestone as the first regional exclusive timepiece launched by Grand Seiko Asia-Pacific in commemoration of the organization’s first year of establishment.

Inspired by the rare Aka Fuji, the SBGH327 pays tribute to the changing seasons. As a reflection of Grand Seiko's reverence for the beauty of nature, the dial of this watch is skilfully crafted to capture this rare fleeting beauty. As late summer transitions to early autumn, a stunning scene unfolds when clear air and altostratus clouds harmoniously reflect the red light of sunrise and sunset onto the mountain. This rare occurrence, happening only once or twice a year, carries cultural significance and is believed to bring good luck. The Aka Fuji symbolizes happiness and success, bridging the gap between nature's beauty and human aspirations.

Beyond its aesthetic charm, the SBGH327 embodies Grand Seiko's unwavering commitment to precision and innovation, reflecting the brand's philosophy, "The Nature of Time." The case features the exquisite Zaratsu polishing, enhancing the watch's aesthetic appeal. This timepiece is driven by the Hi-Beat Cal.9S85 renowned for precision, ensuring outstanding performance. The stainless-steel case boasts a dual-curved sapphire crystal, enhancing legibility with a screw-on see-through case back.

The SBGH327 is exclusively available at the Grand Seiko Boutique and authorized retailers across Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam and is limited to 168 pieces.
