Model Spotlight: Grand Seiko SLGH005 “White Birch”

For more than sixty years, the designers and engineers of Grand Seiko have been driven by one overarching goal—to craft the ideal watch.

The Grand Seiko Heritage Collection: SLGH005 “White Birch”


With research, development, assembly, and inspection under one roof in Shizukuishi, Japan, Grand Seiko is one of the few fully-integrated watch manufacturers in the world. This harmony of purpose has led directly to a group of unmatched watchmakers producing durable, precise, and stylish timepieces the equal of any in the world. The lion which adorns the caseback of every Grand Seiko timepiece symbolizes the “king of watches,” signifying the brand’s commitment to perfection.

The watches of the Grand Seiko Heritage collection, of which the SLGH005 “White Birch” is a signature member, are bold yet classic men’s timepieces. Each model is a marvel of sophistication and exemplary performance, and features time-tested craftsmanship and thoughtful design that will always be in style.

A Horological Leap Forward

The SLGH005 “White Birch” is both lightweight and durable, and is the second timepiece to feature Grand Seiko’s Series 9 case, which features a sapphire exhibition caseback. The 9SA5 movement represents a leap forward in horology thanks to an all-new escapement design, one Grand Seiko has labeled the Dual Impulse. These elements—the case, exhibition caseback, and movement—join harmoniously to protect and power the “White Birch”. Harmony and balance come to life with the nature-inspired design inspired by the white birch trees that grow on the alpine slopes near Grand Seiko’s Shizukuishi factory—metal and wood blend while electric blue meets soft white in the silver dial.


With the SLGH005 “White Birch,” Grand Seiko continues its pursuit of crafting the perfect watch. Pre-order this piece today.
