A new chronograph inspired by the Grand Seiko lion joins the main Sport Collection.
The lion, the enduring emblem of Grand Seiko
The lion symbol reflected the aim of the original Grand Seiko team to create the very best timepiece of which they were capable in terms of accuracy, durability and beauty. The lion makes its presence felt on the watch in several ways. The strong and angular case has claw-like, hairline-finished lugs that stand out from the Zaratsu-polished elements. The dial’s delicate “lion’s mane” pattern, exclusive for this case shape, captures the beauty and strength of the lion. With its ivory-white textured pattern, the dial has an invitingly warm feel and yet creates an instantly powerful impact as it reflects the light from every angle with the quiet brilliance that is the distinctive Grand Seiko hallmark.
The 20 bar water resistant watch is made to ensure the highest level of performance in any sporting situation. The hour and minute hands are designed for heightened legibility, and the wide indexes further enhance one’s ability to read the time immediately. The case and bracelet are made of high-intensity titanium, which is about 30% lighter than stainless steel and brighter in color. The watch sits easily on the wrist, thanks to its curved lugs and low center of gravity. The bracelet, too, is designed for comfort, with thick, H-shaped links that wrap easily around any wrist size.
