Grand Seiko Heritage Ginza SBGH317: A Limited Luxury Edition Ginza Exclusive

In the heart of Tokyo’s ritzy Ginza district, where luxury meets tradition, Grand Seiko unveils its latest masterpiece, the Grand Seiko Heritage 62GS Hi-Beat SBGH317. This limited-edition timepiece follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, the SBGH297, with an even more refined and exclusive design that captures the essence of the Ginza streets in winter. Let’s delve into the exterior features, movement, and unparalleled luxury of this timepiece that is sure to captivate the discerning male audience.

Housed in the classic 40mm 62GS case, the stainless steel construction of the SBGH317 is a testament to Grand Seiko’s commitment to timeless design. The case features Zaratsu-polished and brushed surfaces, sports box-shaped sapphire crystal, sapphire caseback, screw-lock crown, and water resistance up to 100 meters. It comes with a 3-link stainless steel bracelet with brushed and polished accents and a folding clasp with safety pushers.

The dial of the SBGH317 takes inspiration from the winter light of the serene Ginza streets. The light purple hue, complemented by a sunray-brushed pattern and a distinctive Ginza grid pattern, reflects the quiet elegance of the district. The detailed hands and markers, with polished surfaces and sharp bevels, contribute to the overall sophistication of the timepiece. A subtle date window at 3 o’clock adds practicality to the aesthetic.

Turning the watch over, the sapphire back adorned with the brand’s iconic lion logo reveals the heart of the SBGH317 – the high-frequency caliber 9S85. Beating at an impressive 36,000 vibrations per hour, and has 37 jewels, a 55-hour power reserve, and a reported accuracy of -3/+5 seconds per day.

Limited to only 530 pieces, the Grand Seiko Heritage Ginza SBGH317 is the epitome of luxury reserved for the most discerning collectors. Available exclusively at six stores in Ginza, including the GS Flagship Boutique Ginza and Ginza Mitsukoshi, this limited edition timepiece retails for around $5,840.
