Grand Seiko presents a new Spring Drive 8-Day Jewelry Watch (reference SBGD213) from its Masterpiece collection.
Adorned with diamonds and blue sapphires, this platinum wristwatch with a blue mother of pearl dial evokes the powerful yet elegant nature of the white lion. The case and dial have 5.62 carats of diamonds and 1.25 carats of blue sapphires, all set by hand.
The lion symbol has been closely associated with the Japanese’s premium watch label since its launch. Introduced in 1960, the first Grand Seiko watch came with a gold medallion depicting a lion graced the case back.
In 2022, Grand Seiko introduced a Spring Drive jewelry watch (SBGD209) inspired by the white lion. Now the brand is offering a novelty Spring Drive model that reflects the strength and power of this majestic creature.

A new addition to the Masterpiece collection, Grand Seiko SBGD213 comes with a 44.5mm diameter case in platinum. Adorned with sparkling diamonds, the case has strong and angular lugs denoting the power of the lion. The upper surfaces of the case feature 112 diamonds and 60 baguette-cut diamonds adorn the bezel. A single brilliant-cut blue sapphire is set into the crown.
The mother of pearl dial has a distinct blue shade, representing Grand Seiko’s signature color. Surrounding this dial, the tapered blue sapphires and baguette diamonds serve as hour and minute markers.
Forty-eight additional diamonds and 12 blue sapphires are individually set around the markers, enhancing the depth and beauty of the dial. The grey colored seconds hand matches the overall tone.
Finished with a special Zaratsu polishing technique specially developed for Platinum 950, the case spotlights a distortion-free mirror finish. This new model comes with a black alligator leather strap.
The Grand Seiko SBGD213 watch houses the Caliber 9R01, a manual-winding Spring Drive movement. It is accurate to ±10 seconds per month and offers a power reserve of eight days, thanks to its three barrels arranged in sequence. The sapphire crystal case back reveals the exquisite finishing of the movement’s one-piece bridge, designed in the image of Mt. Fuji.
Proposed in a limited edition of just eight pieces, this new Grand Seiko masterpiece jewellery watch will be presented at select Grand Seiko Boutiques in June 2023.
