White Birch 'Shirakaba' powered by Spring Drive 9RA2
A follow up to the ever-popular SLGH005, the new SLGA009 captures the beauty of white birch and pairs it with Grand Seiko’s latest Spring Drive engine.
The overall form of the watch is known as the Evolution 9 Design, and it will be an important part of Grand Seiko’s iconic collection in the years to come. The powerful hands and grooved, prominent markers ensure perfect legibility. The 40mm stainless steel case is Zaratsu polished, with a distortion-free mirror finish and delicate hairline finish alternating to give the case its dynamic sparkle. The case has wide lugs and a low center of gravity that ensures that the watch sits easily and securely on the wrist for daylong comfort.
The dial of SLGA009 captures the quiet mood of the white birch tree forests near the studio in Shinshu, where all Grand Seiko Spring Drive watches are crafted. Unlike the deep waves of the SLGH005 dial, the texture here is more subtle and delicate, evoking Grand Seiko’s brand philosophy, The Nature of Time.
SLGA009 carries the latest Spring Drive 9RA2 caliber, which offers an enhanced precision rate of ±0.5 seconds per day. The movement is equipped with an "Offset Magic Lever" to reduce its thickness and incorporates two barrels to provide up to 120 hours of power reserve. The delicate texture of the movement's finish reflects the frost that winter brings to the forests in Shinshu where all Spring Drive watches are made. The bridge line and the edges of the screw holes are diamond cut to reflect the light from any angle, and they give the movement a quiet glow when seen through the sapphire case back.

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.
