Grand Seiko Elegance Collection - SBGK007
The slim profile of the case is made possible by tailoring the engineering to the design. The movement is wound by hand and so can be thinner. The small second's hand at the nine o’clock position uses less height than a center seconds hand would need. The dial slopes away at the edge to accentuate the slimness of the case, which is curved to sit close to the wrist. Occasionally, less really is more.
Caliber 9S63 is the first-ever Grand Seiko movement equipped with a small seconds hand. It is located at the nine o’clock position, opposite the indicator on which you can see the power reserve increase as you turn the crown. Caliber 9S63 offers a power reserve of 72 hours and a precision rate of +5 to -3 seconds per day. The movement is hand-assembled and adjusted by the master craftsmen and women of the new Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi.
