Grand Seiko SBGE295 Spring Drive GMT “Mt. Hotaka Peaks”



Grand Seiko SBGE295 – Evoking the summertime vegetation from the highlands of the Hotaka mountain range.

Available: July 2023.

The SBGE295 has a stainless-steel case and measures 44mm in diameter, 14.7mm in thickness, and 50.8mm in length. It features Grand Seiko’s signature Zaratsu finish, with alternating mirror-polished and hairline surfaces along different parts of the case. The lugs are downturned and hug the wrist, giving the watch the appearance of being shorter from lug to lug. Paired with the offset crown at four o’clock, the size looks smaller than its dimensions would otherwise suggest, and the overall package is designed for comfort. 

The SBGE295 runs on Grand Seiko’s Spring Drive Caliber 9R66. The movement has a 72-hour power reserve when fully wound, and there is a visible power reserve indicator next to the eight o’clock index on the dial. The 9R66 is a true GMT, so the hour hand is independently adjustable while the GMT hand remains fixed to home time.
