The natural beauty of tree rings

A unique and natural dial fits perfectly in a distinctive overall design.

In 1881, Kintaro Hattori founded the company that would later be known as Seiko and led it until his death at the age of 73 in 1934. His philosophy was that his company should be “Always one step ahead of the rest” and, as they went about their duties, he promoted to his colleagues his life lesson “Don’t run but always keep going.” His words have always had a powerful resonance and inspire the company still.

While it was not created until 1960, nothing better expresses their power than Grand Seiko with its unique design, leading edge manufacturing and exquisite finishing. In honor of the 140th anniversary of the foundation of the company, Grand Seiko announces a remarkable creation that embodies Kintaro Hattori’s spirit and vision. The watch incorporates a dial design that captures the natural beauty of tree rings.

Time, nature and craftsmanship. SLGH007 embodies the spirit of Kintaro Hattori.

Our founder, Kintaro Hattori’s credo has always had a powerful resonance and inspire Grand Seiko still. The dial captures the nature beauty of annual growth rings of cedar trees in Shizukuishi Shrine near Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi. As if stretching back to reveal the very roots of Kintaro's story, a series of delicate and organic lines echo the intricate rings that denote each year's growth. A special anniversary demands that precious metals are used to celebrate it. The case is crafted from Platinum 950.

The overall look of the watch is known as the Series 9 Design and it will be an important part of the Grand Seiko’s signature in the years to come. Its powerful hands and grooved, prominent markers ensure perfect legibility, its Zaratsu polished, distortion-free mirror finish and delicate hairline finish alternate give the case a quiet and harmonious glow. The case has a low centre of gravity that ensures that the watch sits easily and securely on the wrist.

The high-beat watch is powered by the revolutionary Calibre 9SA5, which offers a power reserve of 80 hours thanks to its enhanced energy efficiency.
