SBGA493 - US Limited Edition Inspired by the Forge

The Japanese sword, known as the katana, is a world-renowned masterpiece in steel. Deeply rooted in Japan’s history and cultural heritage, the famous curved blade is the product of centuries of learned craft.

SBGA493 pulls inspiration from the forge itself. The deep red color and yellow gold-tone accents are influenced by the heated blade during the forging process, and the pattern, which is unique to this model in the series, emulates the radiating sparks created when the hammer strikes the blade.

Measuring 40mm in diameter, the stainless steel case features Grand Seiko’s iconic 44GS form, re-imagined to accommodate modern trends. It features a beautiful, faceted design with perfectly flat and mirror polished surfaces, all made possible via Grand Seiko’s acclaimed Zaratsu finishing method.

SBGA493 is powered by Spring Drive caliber 9R65, which combines the high torque of a mechanical watch with a high-precision regulator. It features an accuracy rating of one second a day. The second hand glides in a smooth motion, a defining featuring of Spring Drive.

SBGA493 is a US Limited Edition of 500.
