The dial of SBGK017 takes its inspiration from Nanbu tekki ironware, a form of traditional metalworking that is produced in the city of Morioka in Iwate prefecture. This renowned handcraft dates all the way back to Japan’s Edo period (1603-1868), but it's also a tradition that continues on to this day, prized by many for its beauty and durability. Nanbu tekki ironware features a distinctive texture called arare, or hailstone, on its exterior. This texture finds its way onto the dark gray dial of SBGK017.
Rendered in stainless steel, the case is polished by a special Zaratsu method created to accentuate the beauty of the case's curved surfaces. The dial and sapphire crystal are also curved to give the watch a classic look and feel. Additionally, the dial features hand-bent minute and power reserve hands, a nod to classic watch design.
Caliber 9S63 is a slim manual wind caliber, and it features a small seconds register at the nine o’clock position and a power reserve indicator at three. The thinness of the movement allows for a slimmer, dressier design.
SBGK017 is a U.S. Special Edition.

Give your watch a quick check on a regular basis, wiping down the face and bracelet with a soft cloth, checking the leather on a strap, and making sure that the strap or bracelet is firmly attached to the watch face. Also, while many watches are water resistant, few are truly waterproof, so if you find that moisture or dust has penetrated the case of your watch, bring it into your local Ben Bridge store where we can have one of our watchmakers clean it out for you.

Our best advice on watch maintenance is to never attempt do-it-yourself repairs, no matter how handy you are or how good the instructions are on Youtube. Watches are super complex little machines and only an expert watchmaker should be trusted to get a watch back into working condition. Attempts by an untrained repair person may seriously damage the watch and can even invalidate factory warranties.

In general, having your watch checked regularly by your Personal Jeweler or watchmaker and serviced according to the manufacturer's guidelines should keep it in excellent shape.
