The Heritage Collection – SBGA413 

Grand Seiko Heritage Collection

The Grand Seiko Heritage Collection is the very heart of Grand Seiko and comprises timepieces which emphasise well-balanced design and express the simple, pure essentials of watchmaking. It offers a selection of classic watches that bring alive again the designs and styles of the earliest Grand Seiko timepieces, reinterpreted with the latest movements, manufacturing techniques and craftsmanship. 

Grand Seiko SBGA413

SBGA413 is a classic Grand Seiko design with a dial that captures a treasured moment in the Japanese seasonal calendar. It is a modern reinterpretation of the celebrated 62GS from 1967, which was Grand Seiko’s first watch with an automatic movement. The current model includes many aesthetic features of the original design. To look closely at the dial is to be transported to Hana-Ikada, the much-loved scene at the moment soon after the spring equinox, Shunbun, when cherry blossom petals scattered by the wind cover the surface of a river.
