This timepiece is inspired by the quiet stillness of Japanese winter – ‘Shizuri-yuki,’ means when the only sound is delicate snow crystals falling from the forest branches viewed from our artisans’ studios, creating a shimmering cascade of light. The pure white textured dial is enhanced by delicate diamonds set into the side of its 38.5 mm diameter case, representing the light reflections.
‘The Nature of Time’ theme features prominently in Grand Seiko watch designs – a Japanese spirituality where each moment is a unique expression unveiled through light and shadow. The watchmakers’ pride in their surroundings is represented from engineering watch movements which emulate the smooth motion of time passing, to creating dials reflecting the beauty of Japanese nature.
This model is powered by the slim Spring Drive calibre 9R31 made at the Shinshu Watch Studio – its dual spring barrel creates a power reserve of 72 hours, shown by a power reserve indicator on the back. Spring Drive is one of the most significant developments in recent watchmaking which took 28 years to develop.
With a superior level of precision, Spring Drive generates energy with a mainspring combined with an electronic regulator, never requiring a battery change.
