Every winter, the water of Lake Suwa freezes over, and most years a long ridge appears in the ice from one side of the lake to the other. Tradition has it that this is the "Omiwatari," or where the Shinto Gods walk out over the ice. This legend has inspired the craftsmen and women at the nearby Shinshu Watch Studio to create SBGY007.
The dial here is ice-blue in color and textured to mimic the undulations of the frozen lake. Inspired by the shape of a wind-filled sail, the stainless steel case measures 38.5mm across and was designed to easily slip under a shirt cuff. A new adaptation of Zaratsu polishing was developed to address the challenge of creating a distortion-free finish on a curved surface.
Housed inside the case is caliber 9R31, which has a Dual Spring Barrel that delivers a power reserve of 72 hours when fully wound. Beautifully finished and visible through an exhibition case back, 9R31 also carries the power reserve indicator over from the dial to the movement.

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.
