Description

One of the first ever Grand Seiko engraved dials, inspired by the original story behind the name of the Japanese location  ‘Shizukuishi,’ where Grand Seiko timepieces are made.
Around 1,000 years ago, whilst cutting grass an old man heard a strange sound. He followed the sound to an ancient giant cedar tree to find a cave at its roots where spring water was dripping onto a rock below. The dripping sound echoed through the cave and the silent forest.This land has been called ‘Shizukuishi’ (from shizuku ‘dripping water’ and ‘ishi’ – ‘rock’ ever since.
A truly unique piece – the hand engravings on the hour markers are inspired by the water droplets from the name of Shizukuishi, whilst the 18 carat gold minute markers are each manually engraved to reflect the light.
Platinum case, 18 carat white gold engraved dial. Manual winding movement. Accompanied by a limited edition box with a loupe.
Grand Seiko: the relentless quest for precise timekeeping from the pinnacle of Seiko Watch Corporation’s in-house manufacture. With leading watchmaking, durability and legibility, every Grand Seiko is still handmade in Japan by elite craftsmen and women.
