2022 marks the 15th anniversary of Grand Seiko’s first Spring Drive chronograph, and to celebrate this important milestone Grand Seiko presents SBGC247, a limited edition Spring Drive Chronograph GMT with a dial inspired by the wintery mountains of Shinshu.
Rendered in High-Intensity Titanium, the case measures 43.5mm in diameter and 16.1mm in thickness. It features an eye-catching combination of mirror-polished and hairline-finished surfaces, which is made possible due to the type of titanium alloy used here and Grand Seiko’s Zaratsu finishing method. High-Intensity Titanium is also notable for its lightweight quality (relative to steel) and its resistance against corrosion. A dual curve sapphire crystal sits on top of the dial. A sapphire crystal on the case back offers a view of the 9R96 Spring Drive Chronograph GMT movement within.
Caliber 9R96 offers an impressive accuracy of ±0.5 seconds per day, and, because of the distinct nature of Spring Drive, the chronograph function measures elapsed time to the exact moment and not just to the nearest fraction of a second, a feature made possible courtesy of the glide motion hand. The GMT feature also has jump-hour functionality and SBGC247 can two separate time zones.
SBGC247 is a limited edition of 700 watches.

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.
