SLGH005G Evolution 9 Hi-Beat 40 mm White Birch
Around the Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi in northern Japan are beautiful white birch forests. The bark of these remarkable trees inspired the white dial of this now iconic "White Birch" reference, part of the Evolution 9 collection and winner of the GPHG Men's Watch of the Year in 2021. The overall aesthetics of the watch match the Evolution 9 design. The prominence of its grooved hands and hour markers ensure perfect legibility for the wearer, while the alternating Zaratsu polishing, for a mirror finish without the slightest distortion, and brushed finish give the 40mm case a discreet and harmonious shine. This Hi-beat watch is powered by the revolutionary 9SA5 caliber, which offers a power reserve of 80 hours thanks to its increased energy efficiency.
