Grand Seiko White Birch Is Inspired by Japanese Forests

A novel, special creation from Grand Seiko has arrived to bring a new perspective on the nature of time.

It is powered by a high-beat movement and inspired by the delicate and beautiful birch trees that predominate in northern Japan that also grow abundantly near the Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi, where this watch is made.

The dial has an intricate texture with first-class finishes and delicate, subtle details.

This way, this new watch transforms into a window that lets consumers connect with the country’s deep and distinctive natural environment and the distinguished craftsmanship of the Grand Seiko.

Known as the Series 9 design, the dial remains true to Grand Seiko’s ideals, traditions, and characteristic features.

It will arrive as an essential part of the signature Grand Seiko Heritage Collection in the upcoming years. Perfect readability was one of the manufacturer’s goals; hence this new creation includes powerful hands and prominent, grooved markers.

The new SG watch also features a seamless Zaratsu polished mirror finish that is also distortion-free and gives a flawless appearance.

Besides, it has a case with wide lugs and a low center of gravity that ensure a perfect, easy, and secure grip on the wrist.

Featuring the revolutionary Caliber 9SA5, this watch promises improved energy efficiency and an 80-hour power reserve. Furthermore, it leans towards the Seiko free-sprung balance and the horizontal gear train to set new high-beat horology standards.

All fine and elegant watch customers will be able to get this new Grand Seiko alternative from March 2021 at Grand Seiko Boutiques and selected retail stores worldwide.
