The newest timepieces from Grand Seiko celebrate soko, the end of Autumn in Japan, when the first frost embraces the forest. Each timepiece’s design and movement is a tribute to Japanese nature and expresses the natural and continuous flow of time. The green accent colors featured on the seconds hand and power reserve indicator epitomize the life of the Arashiyama bamboo forest in Kyoto in its peak season. The vertical texture of the dials reflects the majestic stalks of the bamboo. Together, the 39 mm timepieces pay tribute to this moment in nature, when its green hues are dramatically enlivened in the contrasting expression of “light” — silver dial of SBGA427 and “shadow” gray dial of SBGA429. These remarkable timepieces display the deeply satisfying beauty created by the highest level of Japanese craftsmanship unique to Grand Seiko. Inside, the Spring Drive 9R65 Caliber — spring drives are one of the greatest innovations in modern watchmaking — is designed, adjusted and assembled by hand, by acclaimed craftsmen and women at the Shinshu Watch Studio in Japan. It further celebrates the passage of time as a poetic journey with every revolution of the seconds hand around the dial. Whether elegant, traditional or sport, expect a new understanding of “The Nature of Time” from Grand Seiko; Grand-Seiko.us.com.
