Inspired by the Hotaka mountains. Crafted in their shadow.
This Spring Drive classic is made by the craftsmen and women of the Shinshu Watch Studio in Japans Nagano Prefecture. The studio is surrounded by the Hotaka mountains that, for several months each year, are covered in snow. In the crisp, dry air, and when driven across the slopes by the wind, this snow has a special light and delicate quality that is captured in the subtly textured surface of the dial. The blue tempered steel seconds hand moves over it in the perfect glide motion that is Spring Drives unique signature and reflects the continuous, eternal and beautiful nature of time.
The SBGA211 is powered by Spring Drive, Grand Seikos unique caliber, which combines the motive force of a mainspring found with the high precision of a quartz watch.
The case and bracelet are made with high-intensity titanium, providing a scratch and corrosion resistant finish, making it 30% lighter than stainless steel and a pleasure to wear.
The blue steel second hand moves smoothly in glide motion, and glows over the contrasting pure white face to create an even more dramatic movement.
It has a 72-hour (3-day) power reserve, and a power reserve indicator on the bottom left of the dial.
