It doesn’t always take a million-dollar car or a legendary athlete to derive inspiration for a luxury handmade timepiece. Grand Seiko understands this thought, which is why it looks to mother nature as the creativity for the newest addition to the Heritage Collection. The Grand Seiko SLGH005 captures the dynamism of the white birch tree forests near the studio in Shizukuishi, where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are crafted. The 40mm stainless-steel watch features a gloss dial with a linear pattern, representing the appearance of the white birch tree, while the only other focus is the date indicator. The high-beat watch is powered by the revolutionary Caliber 9SA5, which offers a power reserve of 80 hours thanks to its enhanced energy efficiency. A matching stainless-steel band and three-fold clasp complete the simplistic design of the Grand Seiko SLGH005. This example by Grand Seiko only further proves that inspiration for exquisite pieces can be found no further than someone’s backyard.
