Godzilla, the monumental monument of Japan ’s monster movie, has been fascinated by movie fans all over the world since the first movie was released in 1954. In commemoration of the 65th anniversary of the monster king "Godzilla", a collaboration model with Grand Seiko appeared.
Between Seiko and Godzilla, there is a history that Godzilla who landed in Ginza destroyed the clock tower in the Wako Main Building. 65 years later in 2019, the Monster King will reappear in Ginza.

A crimson dial reminiscent of the king of monster kings, radiant heat rays
The crimson dial, which has a strong impact, has a powerful radiation pattern with the motif of “radiant heat rays” that can be said to be synonymous with the king of monsters. Three-dimensional and large hands and indexes that are not inferior to a vivid and impressive dial ensure high visibility even during the day by Lumibright applied to each during daytime. In pursuit of high practicality in accordance with the brand philosophy, this model can be said to be a sporty design that can only be achieved by Grand Seiko.
A strong silhouette case that resonates with Godzilla's strength
The massive case, which embodies overwhelming strength and dignity, provides excellent wearability by widening the bottom of the case and the ground contact surface of the arm and lowering the center of gravity of the case. The flat feet without distortion and the hairline finish with salat polish emphasize the strong silhouette.
A special strap that expresses the dynamic skin of Godzilla
Shark straps adopted to express the texture of Godzilla's skin have a red coating on them, giving them an eerie and lively feeling of Godzilla's skin glowing red and black.
Back cover of special specifications suitable for collaboration model
As a special specification only for the collaboration model, the back lid shows Godzilla destroying the city of Ginza and the clock tower of the Wako main building, reminiscent of the first work of 1954.

The movement that is installed is the original mechanism "Spring Drive" that celebrated its 20th anniversary. In this work, "caliber 9R15" with special accuracy boasting an average monthly difference of ± 10 seconds is adopted.
The Caliber 9R15 is a movement that is specially adjusted to a higher precision than the most standard 9R spring drive movement, the Caliber 9R65.
The “caliber 9R65” has an average monthly difference of ± 15 seconds (equivalent to a daily difference of ± 1 second), whereas the “caliber 9R15” pursues accuracy up to an average monthly difference of ± 10 seconds (equivalent to a daily difference of ± 0.5 seconds). The
The difference between the two movements lies in the “crystal unit” that sends an accurate electrical signal.
All 9R spring drives use “crystal units” with stable accuracy, but only “crystal units” that exhibit particularly excellent performance are selected and installed in the “caliber 9R15”. The
As a proof of special adjustment accuracy, the "rotor weight" made of 18K yellow gold is decorated on the rotating weight, and can be seen from the back cover of the see-through specification.
