Grand Seiko SLGH005 watch awarded the Best of the Best at the Red Dot Design Award 2022
Grand Seiko SLGH005 was awarded the Best of the Best at the Red Dot Design Award 2022 competition, in the area of Product Design, by a jury of 48 design experts from 23 countries. The Best of the Best is the highest award given to the best product with groundbreaking design in each category. Grand Seiko SLGH005 watch captures the dynamism of the white birch tree forests near the studio in Shizukuishi, where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are crafted.
Grand Seiko SLGH005 is powered by the revolutionary Hi-Beat Caliber 9SA5, which has a precision of +5 to -3 seconds per day and achieves a long power reserve of 80 hours. The precision, power, and slim design of Caliber 9SA5 are the result of the radical re-design of key structures, including an entirely new escapement and free-sprung balance developed in-house. To look closely at the dial is to experience the exact same feeling that the visitor to these forests receives and to be brought closer than ever to the true and eternal nature of time.
