Grand Seiko  - A women’s mechanical creation with natural elegance

Grand Seiko A women’s mechanical creation with natural elegance

Expansion of the Grand Seiko mechanical collection.

The Grand Seiko mechanical collection for women is expanding. Thanks to the slim profile and powerful performance of the new Caliber 9S27, new design possibilities have been created, as is today evidenced by a new series in the Elegance collection. The long, flowing lines of this new case are seamless and the surfaces distortion-free so that the watch has a curved, organic feeling. The bezel-free case and the domed sapphire crystal create a arc that follows the shape of the wrist and two lines of diamonds frame the dial and follow the contour of the watch.
 
The two new watches in this series are unmistakably Grand Seiko. Their design respects the heritage that was born in 1967 with the classic 62GS with its bezel-free construction, sharply angled hands and markers and highly polished surfaces.

There is a Japanese elegance to the dials that derives from the combination of the two diagonally positioned diamonds at 12 o’clock, the tactile texture of the dial surface and the leaf shaped hour markers which, like the tapered hour and minute hands, are polished to ensure both their beauty and their legibility. One dial has a delicate silver-colored pattern while the second has a mother-of-pearl dial with a deep purple color known as ‘Koki-murasaki’ which has been a symbol of status since the early days of ancient Japan. Thanks to the dial’s texture and this deep color, it seems to be ever changing.

The refinement of the case is most evident when seen from the side. The diamonds are perfectly aligned along the Zaratsu polished surface which has the perfect, distortion-free finish that only this handcraft technique can deliver. While soft to the touch, every edge is sharp to the eye and catches the light in a way that is in sparkling harmony with the line of diamonds.

The Grand Seiko automatic caliber 9S27 strikes that difficult and delicate balance between high performance and slimness. It has a precision rate of +8 to −3 seconds a day and a power reserve of 50 hours. These levels of performance are delivered by an 8 beat movement that is just 19.4mm in diameter and 4.49mm in height.
