They say a stitch in time saves nine. Grand Seiko saved its best for its latest timepiece from its own Series 9 line. Check out our Watch of the Month, the understatedly graceful SLGH005 – aka the White Birch. A stunning design inspired by the dynamism of the old birch forests near where all of Seiko’s mechanical watches are crafted. The SLGH005 retails for $9,100, and it’s an amazing addition to any watch collection…if you can get your hands on one! Watch the video to see our take on this impressive timepiece.
We visit watch expert, Mark Gavranovic, GM at Hyde Park Jewelers in Newport Beach to explain why demand for the White Birch is through the roof.
