The melting snow of Mt. Iwate in Ever-Brilliant Steel
Mt. Iwate, the imposing 2,038-meter-high peak that overlooks Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi where all Grand Seiko mechanical models are made, serves as inspiration for the modern Hi-Beat 36000 reference SLGH013. The timepiece features a light blue dial that expresses the distinct texture of the snow on Mt. Iwate as it melts in the spring.
The combination of a flat dial and a wide opening lets light pour in and create an ever-changing background against the razor-edged, multi-faceted indexes and the hour and minute hands show their brilliance.
The case and bracelet are made of Ever-Brilliant Steel, a stainless-steel alloy that features even greater corrosion resistance than what is typically used across the watch industry today. It has a PREN (Pitting Resistance Equivalent Number) value 1.7 times higher than that of the grade of steel used in most high-class watches. Visually, it also has a brilliant white hue that enhances the beauty and Zaratsu finishing of the watch. This is the first continuous production Grand Seiko watch to feature Ever-Brilliant Steel.
The case measures 40mm across and 11.7mm in thickness, making it thinner than many of the modern 44GS models offered in the past. This is due to the reduced thickness of the 9SA5 caliber itself, which has a power reserve of 80 hours, an accuracy rate of +5 to -3 seconds per day, and a rate of 36,000 bph.

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.
