2022 is the 15th anniversary of Grand Seiko’s first Spring Drive chronograph. Commemorating this milestone, SBGC249 is a limited-edition Spring Drive chronograph and the first chronograph in the Evolution 9 Collection.
SBGC249 is made from High-Intensity Titanium and measures 45.3mm in diameter, 15.8mm in thickness, and 52.6mm lug-to-lug. The bezel insert is sapphire, which makes it highly impervious to scratches. The pushers for operating the chronograph function have been redesigned, and they now sit closer to the case. A dual-curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating along the inner surface covers the Cosmo Blue dial. The Evolution 9 Style hands and indexes offer immediate contrast against the inky dial, and their size makes reading the time immediately possible. Legibility is further enhanced with ample use of LumiBrite on the hands, indexes, and bezel.
SBGC249 is powered by caliber 9R96, a Spring Drive chronograph with a GMT function. It features an 18k gold medallion on the oscillating weight, and it is specially adjusted to have an accuracy rating of ±0.5 seconds per day (or ±10 seconds per month).
SBGC249 is a limited edition of 700.

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.
