In celebration of its long-standing partnership, Grand Seiko and Timeless Luxury Watches have teamed up to present a new limited-edition timepiece. The commemorative timepiece delivers the best in performance with perfected elegance, while also paying homage to Grand Seiko’s deeply rooted Spring Drive movement.
Inspired by a blizzard in Shirojiri, Japan, where the Shinshu Studio is located, the Grand Seiko Spring Drive Limited Edition: SBGE249 is assembled and adjusted by hand, by acclaimed craftsmen and women. The design encapsulates a bold blue GMT hand, and while held at certain angles, contrasts mesmerizing shine and colour much like the beauty of heavy snow.
In both performance and appearance, the limited-edition timepiece expresses the very best of Grand Seiko’s watchmaking. This timepiece features Grand Seiko’s unique Spring Drive caliber, combining the motive force of a mainspring with high precision. The blued-steel GMT hand moves gracefully over the white blizzard dial further highlighting a glide motion that reflects the natural and continuous flow of time itself. The caliber has a high accuracy of +/-10 seconds per month and a power reserve of 72 hours.
The accurate workings are enclosed in a stainless-steel case and bracelet with tri-fold push button release clasp. The sapphire crystal see-through caseback showcases the Grand Seiko Lion emblem in blue metallization.
Grand Seiko set the very highest standards in the essentials of watchmaking, accuracy, durability and legibility, with the skills and experience of its Japanese watchmakers and craftsmen. The unique Spring Drive technology was launched 20 years ago this year.
The Timeless Limited Edition: SBGE249 will be made available in August/September 2019
