This watch is inspired by the Shirakaba tree forests near the Grand Seiko studio in Shizukuishi, where all their mechanical watches are made. The watch's dial has been designed to capture the essence of these forests and provide an experience that closely compares the feeling of looking at them. It allows the wearer to be closer to the true nature of time.

SLGH005 captures the dynamism of the white birch tree forests near the studio in Shizukuishi, where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are crafted. To look closely at the dial is to experience the same feeling that the visitor to these forests receives and be brought closer than ever to the true and eternal nature of time.

The watch's overall look is known as the Evolution 9 Style and will be an essential part of the Grand Seiko’s signature in the future. 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 wide lugs and a low center of gravity, ensuring the watch sits easily and securely on the wrist.

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.

Grand Seiko was founded in 1960 due to a strong desire to succeed. The notion that inspired the designers and engineers during the development of Grand Seiko, and ever since, was that it should be the "perfect" watch, with world-leading standards of precision, durability, and beauty.

Timepieces from Grand Seiko are made by master artisans in Seiko's two premier watchmaking studios, using exclusive movements and the highest-grade materials. Each Grand Seiko watch is immediately recognizable because of its clarity of form and elegance. From the first Grand Seiko watch in 1960 to the latest collection today, every Grand Seiko has shared the functional beauty and design purity that has always been its hallmark.
