NEW PRODUCT A platform of unlimited potential

The authentic successor to the design of the first Grand Seiko Spring Drive. The GS logo mark is displayed at the 12 o'clock position. Drive time is about 72 hours when wound to the maximum. The power remaining in the mainspring can be confirmed through the power reserve indicator. It carries a Caliber 9R65 movement which can be observed through the exhibition case back. Automatic winding Spring Drive, 41.0 mm case in stainless steel.

Spring Drive is a unique technology that sets a new standard for the wrist watch industry. It is also a platform that offers great future potential. From just one caliber back in 2004, there are already no fewer than 5 different Spring Drive movements and more are sure to follow. The Spring Drive journey has only just begun.

The first Spring Drive caliber, 9R65, was a three hand calendar movement. Soon after a GMT caliber, 9R66, was developed followed by Caliber 9R86 which added a chronograph to the functions of its predecessors.

After the 9R86 chronograph came a remarkable creation from the luxury watch craftsmen at the renowned Micro Artist Studio. It was the 8 day Spring Drive caliber 9R01. It demonstrated the almost unlimited potential of this remarkable technology and points the way towards a future where innovation imagination and potential will deliver watches that will, once again, redefine what a luxury watch can be, just as Akahane always dreamed.
