Disney character merchandise is numerous, but watches in particular have a long history, with the first generation dating back to the 1930s.
In addition to American watches such as Ingersole and Timex, Japan manufacturers have also released various models since the 1960s.
Mickey Mouse and Donald Dougg’s arms are used as needles, and the cute atmosphere soothes the heart.
In addition to these children’s models, luxury Disney watches for adults are also released by Gerald Genta, Franck Muller, Rolex, etc. Disney characters stick well with adults.
GS’s unique high quality
Grand Seiko, Japan’s premier brand of watches, is pleased to announce the release of The Walt Disney Company’s 100th anniversary models, the SLGH023 (white dial) and SLGH025 (black dial).

The base model is the Evolution 9, equipped with the company’s top-of-the-line high-beat automatic movement, featuring a calmly designed dial and a beautifully polished case.
At a glance, I thought, “There are no Disney characters! Check the back cover without saying. The back is a skeleton specification that allows you to see the movement, but here is a classic style Mickey who tends to have black eyes.

It’s not a good idea, but it’s reluctant to have Mickey behind it. It is a highly complete one that incorporates Disney without losing the balance of Grand Seiko.
Only Grand Seiko is perfect in terms of accuracy and performance, and the beauty of the finish such as polishing and edge treatment is outstanding. Each production is 100 pieces, but all of the past limited edition Disney watches have become collector’s items, so they will be popular this time as well.
It will be available only for in-store reservations at Grand Seiko Flagship Boutique Ginza or by lottery at Grand Seiko Boutique Online. Reservations are already open and will be accepted until August 27th.
The release date is after late December, and the price is 1.43 million yen each. Disney fans with a wallet should check it out.
