In 2020, Grand Seiko introduced two Special Edition timepieces exclusive to the US. Focused on sōkō, the sekki (micro-season) that translates to “frost descends,” models SBGA427 and SBGA429 were informed by the end of autumn precisely when the first frost embraces the forest. SBGA471 Sōkō Frost, one of two US-exclusive Special Edition timepieces, grows that collection with a dynamic blue inside Grand Seiko’s foundational 44GS case.
Measuring 40mm in diameter, the stainless steel case features Grand Seiko’s iconic 44GS form, reimagined to accommodate modern trends. It features a beautiful, faceted design with perfectly flat and mirror polished surfaces, all made possible via Grand Seiko’s acclaimed Zaratsu finishing method. The dial of SBGA471 is vertically textured like past Sōkō models, but instead of gray and green it is colored icy-blue with tempered-blue hands, elements inspired by the frozen trunks of the bamboo trees that fill the Arashiyama bamboo forest.
SBGA471 is powered by Spring Drive caliber 9R65, which combines the high torque of a mechanical watch with a high-precision regulator. It features an accuracy rating of one second a day. The second hand glides in a smooth motion, a defining featuring of Spring Drive.

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.
