Why We Love it

Grand Seiko is the darling of contemporary watch collectors today, and taking even a cursory glance at the design specs — or better yet, an example in the metal — it’s easy to see why.

The artisanal talent that goes into the design and manufacturing process of a GS dial alone is simply stunning. Depending on the angle, the color and composition of a textured Grand Seiko face will look completely different. They’re truly works of art steeped in Japanese tradition.

This particular GS, a Reference SLGA007 ‘Lake Suwa,’ celebrates the Seiko company’s 140th anniversary in the form of a special limited edition. Housed in a 40mm stainless steel case with ‘holey’ lugs, a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and a polished bezel, it features a mesmerizing, navy blue ‘Lake Suwa’ dial with applied stainless steel indices and a matching handset, a yellow gold seconds hand, and a date window at 3 o’clock. 

Powering the SLGA007 — whose dial takes inspiration from the waters of Lake Suwa, near to where the watch was manufactured — is Grand Seiko’s innovative Spring Drive Caliber 9RA2 movement with 5 days of power reserve. In excellent condition throughout, it comes paired to a stainless steel multi-link bracelet with a steel and push-button deployant clasp with a yellow gold medallion, and even ships with its factory goodies.

There’s a reason why collectors are flocking to Grand Seiko’s designs. Get this piece on your wrist today to see what all the fuss is about!

Brand Story

+
The Grand Seiko was created by Taro Tanaka, a young designer whom Seiko had hired right out of school. Inspired by the way Swiss watches “sparkled brilliantly,” Tanaka set out to design a watch with sharp edges, brushed surfaces, and a mirror finish that would rival anything created by the Swiss. In 1960, the first Grand Seiko—Reference 3180—debuted.

Other models of Grand Seiko would follow, coupling those elegant “sparkling” cases with high-grade (often hi-beat) manually-wound or automatic movements. When compared to the no-nonsense tool watches like the 6309 line of divers, the Grand Seiko was worlds away—refined, elegant, and cosmopolitan. Seiko intended the watch to be an answer to dress watches crafted by the Swiss, and at that it certainly did succeed.

Well-regarded in its home country, the Grand Seiko reached a global audience in 2010—and has captivated consumers ever since.
