Grand Seiko Elegance SBGK004
Charting a New Course with a New Caliber and Slimmer Profile
Featuring an Urushi dial, a new calibre and a new slim profile (11.6mm thick), the SBGK004 charts a new direction.
Caliber 9S63 is a significant addition to the ever growing Grand Seiko family of movements.
It has been eight years since the last manual-winding mechanical caliber in Grand Seiko and it has been worth the wait. Only 150 pieces of this stunning piece are available worldwide.
Caliber 9S63 offers a small seconds hand at the nine o’clock position and a power reserve indicator at three o’clock.
Caliber 9S63 has a power reserve of 72 hours and delivers an accuracy rate of +5 to -3 seconds a day.
About Grand Seiko
Grand Seiko was established in 1960 with the mission to create "ideal" watches with standards of precision, durability and beauty that would lead the world. Grand Seiko watches are a reflection of Japanese aesthetics and are notable for the purity, simplicity and subtlety of their designs. Grand Seiko calls it “functional beauty,” a style that does not interfere with the reading of the time, but enhances it with harmonious case lines and uncluttered, easy-to-read dials. Key to the design are polished surfaces that reflect rays of light. Since ancient times, Japanese people have admired the subtle gradations between light and shadow in nature. With that inspiration, Grand Seiko uses a simple case design composed of a flat plane and curved line that respond to the movement of light. Grand Seiko creates this hard-edged, flat-surfaced case through a process called Zaratsu, giving the case a mirror-like smoothness where light and shadow play.
Grand Seiko makes watches with three different kinds of movements: mechanical, quartz, and Spring Drive. Spring Drive is a technical breakthrough invented by Seiko that combines the best of mechanical and quartz technologies. It’s an automatic watch that gives quartz accuracy without using a battery. No other watch company has this technology. It is a testament to the watchmaking savvy of a firm that has made mechanical watches since 1895.
