Grand Seiko SBGH295 Sōkō Edition USA Exclusive
Sōkō Edition SBGH295 – Inspired by Autumn’s First Frost.
Marking the end of Autumn at the moment when the frost first embraces the forest, SBGH295 Sōkō Frost is one of two new, US-exclusive Special Edition timepieces exploring the Japanese sekki. Featuring a fine texture that is inspired by the clear blue skies over the Sea of Japan in early winter, the kirazuri “ice blue” dial is a new interpretation of a dial first introduced in 2018. The 62GS case, reimagined from a timepiece launched in 1967, features a mirrored, multi-sided design and a wide, bezel-free dial opening. The case is finished via Grand Seiko’s renowned Zaratsu polishing technique.
Reinterpretations of the past.
Both Sōkō models use modern reinterpretations of Grand Seiko models from 1967, the 44GS and 62GS. The 44GS design used on the SBGA471 set the standard for all Grand Seiko design moving forward while the 62GS, used on SBGH295, was the first self-winding Grand Seiko model.

Caliber 9S85 is the result of many years of development in both the design and manufacture of components and in the materials themselves. It features a precision rate of +5 to -3 seconds a day and a 55-hour power reserve, while offering a higher oscillation rate of ten beats per second to ensure greater long-term accuracy.
The Sōkō collection will each include an additional crocodile leather strap with three-fold clasp and contrast stitching.
