The SBGA229 is one of only a handful of divingavailable from Grand despite ’s 50 year old diving heritage. Like all Grand Seikos, it combines timeless looks with exquisite craftsmanship and technology. It also features Grand Seiko’s unique spring drive, a technology that no other in the has. The spring drive movement combines the beauty and complexity of an ordinary mechanical movement but with none of the inaccuracy–the spring drive will be at least as accurate as a good quartz watch. It also has the only truly smooth seconds hand in the industry. Like all Grand Seiko spring drives, a power reserve subdial is used that lets you know how much energy is left in the mainspring before the watch dies.
The SBGA229 is the newest version of the famous SBGA029.
