Continuing with its celebration of its 140th-anniversary, Japanese luxury watchmaker Grand Seiko has now released a new dress watch paying tribute to the company’s founder, Kintaro Hattori.

The highlight of the timepiece comes in the form of its dark textured dial, designed to replicate the age rings of a tree. Sitting on this black background are solid gold indexes and a series of precious alloy components, including the Grand Seiko lettering and the frame of the date window. The 40mm case itself is constructed from platinum and carries within the company’s famed Hi-Beat 36000 9SA5 automatic movement, which offers an impressive 80-hour power reserve.

Limited to just 140 pieces, Grand Seiko’s new SLGH007 is now available for $59,000 USD. Learn more over on the watchmaker’s website.

Elsewhere in watches, Greubel Forsey gives its GMT Quadruple Tourbillon a bold new look.
