Details:

The delicately textured white dial evokes Asaborake, the brief time when, as dawn breaks, the light penetrates the morning mist and begins to reveal the mountain landscape of Shinshu, where this, and all Grand Seiko Spring Drive watches, are made. The minute and seconds hands are gently curved by hand so that they are close to the indexes and minute track. This not only enhances the legibility of the time, which is measured with +/- 15 seconds a month precision, but it also allows the wearer to enjoy to the full the continuous glide motion of the seconds hand that is Spring Drive’s signature.

As with the original 44GS, the glass is box-shaped to give the watch its traditional feel but the thickness of the glass rim is reduced to lower the overall center of gravity of the watch and to provide a slim profile and a comfortable fit on the wrist.

The hand-wound Caliber 9R31 delivers a 72-hour power reserve thanks to its Dual Spring Barrel mechanism in which two springs are set in parallel within one single barrel.

When should I get a maintenance service?
Water-resistance timepieces are recommended to get checked yearly for a water-resistance check. A complete maintenance service of the watch is typically recommended after 5 years. If you notice any sudden changes in your watch's timekeeping, pushers/crown not operating, water moisture in dial, no energy in battery etc, we recommend you do a service immediately to prevent any further damage that can be costly to you down the road. 

After the service
After a service is completed, manufacturers may warranty your item under any work performed for a minimum period of 12 months unless stated otherwise.
