The peacock is a bird that has inspired mankind throughout history. The ancients, believed that peacocks symbolized immortality, while other cultures have seen renewal, and even the ability to be all-seeing in this beautiful bird. Once seen, a peacock’s plumage is never forgotten. The dial of the latest Grand Seiko Hi-beat 36000 captures this beauty. With its deep green color and stamped pattern, the dial is at once striking and yet subtle. The case and movement are the same as in the celebrated watch that won the ’’Petite Aiguille” award prize at the Grand Prix de Genève in 2014. The Hi-beat GMT movement 9S86 is assembled in the Shizukuishi Watch Studio where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are manufactured and assembled, by hand, by the studio’s craftsmen and women. In both performance and appearance, it expresses the very best of Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking.
