Grand Seiko SBGA481 “Tokyo Lion” Spring Drive



Grand Seiko SBGA481 – “The king of the jungle is here to stay”

Available: August 2023.

Until recently, the Lion form was exclusively found in limited editions. But earlier this year, Grand Seiko debuted a new chronograph GMT version that marked a debut for the shape as a standard production watch. Now, at Watches & Wonders Geneva, a time and date (and power reserve) version has also made its appearance, sending out a powerful roar: The “king of the jungle” is here to stay. 

The SBGA481 is in every way an expression of the ideals of a Grand Seiko sports watch. From its high-intensity titanium construction to its 200-meter water resistance and 44.5mm case, this bold watch can not only go just about anywhere, but it is also made to stand out from the pack. A dual curve sapphire crystal, prominent indexes, and large hands designed for legibility ensure that this watch is easy to read at a glance, as a sports watch should be.
