Two New Grand Seiko Spring Drives Launched


Grand Seiko
Two new Spring Drive limited editions

From the article:

The watches are as rugged as the Hodaka mountains that the Grand Seiko watchmakers can see from the Shinshu Watch Studio. As you can see here, their dials are inspired by the wintery snowscapes of the mountains that surrounds the studio where they are made, in Shinshu in central Japan. The case and bracelet of the GMT version are in stainless steel while the GMT Chronograph version is made from high-intensity titanium. The dials capture the rough texture of the snow that can be seen high in the mountains in late winter and early spring, when strong winds carve unique patterns as they whip across the snow surface. The blue accents on both dials echo the bright blue colour of the winter sky in Shinshu.

Both these new editions are powered by specially adjusted Spring Drive movements which offer an enhanced accuracy rate of ±10 seconds per month. Flip them over and both the see-through case back’s sport the gold Grand Seiko lion emblem that graces the oscillating weights as an indication of the enhanced accuracy.
