More than almost any other watchmaker, Grand Seiko has mastered the art of balance. In these stunning pieces, one finds complementary elements balanced against contrasting ones – sharp angles that fade into flowing lines and electric colors that blur into subdued hues. It is in this dichotomy we find the SLGH005, and all its elegance. It carries on the company’s reputation for expertly crafted dials, featuring a white and silver textured surface reminiscent of the white birch bark found near Grand Seiko’s Shizukuishi factory. Ensconced in a new-style 40mm housing, the Grand Seiko SLGH005 also runs with the high-beat 9SA5 movement, debuting for the first time in a stainless steel case. As with many recent Grand Seiko pieces, the GS SLGH005 is destined to become a classic.
