Grand Seiko Spring Drive

A new Spring Drive creation captures the winter scenery of Shinshu

Winter in Shinshu, the region that is home to the facility where all Grand Seiko Spring Drive watches are created, offers a rich variety of sights that are both ephemeral and lastingly memorable. One such is Shizuri-yuki, when snow spills down from the branches of trees, creating a shimmering cascade of light. With its 18k rose gold case graced by lines of diamonds and with the glide motion seconds hand that moves silently and continuously across the white textured dial, this new timepiece brings to life the gentle winter landscape of Shinshu and the transient beauty of Shizuri-yuki.

The 18k rose-gold case carries a total of 53 diamonds delicately set by hand by the highly skilled craftsmen and women in the Shinshu Watch Studio. The diamonds are arranged so that they gradually decrease in size from the center of the case to the lug ends, creating a beautiful, flowing effect. Furthermore, the surfaces of the diamonds are perfectly aligned to create a quiet sparkle that exemplifies the high level of craftsmanship for which Grand Seiko is renowned.

The patterned dial evokes the bright and fresh snow of winter in Shinshu, and combined with the smooth sweeping movement of the seconds hand unique to Spring Drive, the dial captures the tranquil and seamless passage of time.

The timepiece offers a remarkable blend of slimness, power and precision. The watch is only 10.2mm in depth, the power reserve is 72 hours and its accuracy is ±1 second per day, thanks to the manual-winding Caliber 9R31 which powers the watch.

The watch is presented on a brown leather strap with carefully crafted stitches on the sides made by a skilled craftsman and comes with an additional satin gold colored leather strap that creates a quiet effect. The new Spring Drive creation will be available as a limited edition of 60 at the Grand Seiko Boutiques and selected Grand Seiko retailers worldwide in January 2022.
