Seiko Galante “Seiko 135th Anniversary” Limited Edition, Reference SBLA097

To commemorate the 135th anniversary of Seiko’s founding, Seiko Watch Co., Ltd. has created a limited edition timepiece from its Galante series.

This limited edition Seiko Galante watch model (reference SBLA097) features a white butterfly shell dial with diamonds and bold and delicate geometric patterns.

Its stainless steel case measures 44.2mm diameter. In addition to the original case design unique to Galante, the dial graphic emphasizes the presence of this model. The texture of the white butterfly shell is kept as it is, and a bold geometric pattern is drawn in white and blue bicolor, and the whole is delicate with three diamonds and five metal rivets (studs) that play the role of an hour mark.

The Diamond pattern python strap extends from the four cylindrical cans that symbolize Galante. Along with complementing the dial design, the strap itself gives off a unique presence. In addition, the back side of the strap is coated with rubber, and the finish that does not expose the stitches (seam) prevents the strap from deteriorating due to sweat.

The Seiko Galante SBLA097 watch is equipped with the Caliber 5R65 Spring drive movement. Only available at Seiko Premium Boutiques and Seiko Premium Watch Salons, this timepiece is limited to 150 pieces worldwide. The suggested retail price is 650,000 yen + tax.
