Evolution 9 Night Birch
Near Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi in northern Japan are areas known for their breathtaking white birch tree forests. The dial of SLGH017 takes the organic birch texture and does it in a subtle black, inspired by the atmosphere of the white birch tree forests on the Hiraniwa Plateau at night.
The Evolution 9 case is beautifully constructed, rendered in High-Intensity Titanium and finished to a high degree with Zaratsu-polished and hairline surfaces. The case also features a lower center of gravity to ensure day-to-day comfort on the wrist.
The eye-catching dial features distinct hour and minute hands, and the hour hand end is shaped to the exact width of the innermost part of the hour indexes. Each hour index is created through diamond cutting, giving them a perfectly flat mirror finish that reflects even the smallest bit of light, enhancing overall legibility.
Inside SLGH017 is the impressive Caliber 9SA5, a 10-beat movement boasting 80 hours of power reserve and a precision rate of +5 to -3 seconds a day. It fetaures three important developments: Grand Seiko's Dual Impulse Escapement, free-sprung balance, and horizontal gear train.

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.
