The Snowflake dial used for the first time in 2005 was colored with pale blue to image the snow from the Shinshu Watch Studio, the birthplace of Spring Drive.It has succeeded in realizing a designer's idea of expressing the beauty of Shinshu on the dial, and is characterized by a texture that shows a rough snow surface, which is caused by severe cold. The design embodies a pure classical elegance with a box-shaped sapphire crystal, Zaratsu polished lugs, and a blue steel seconds hand complementing the Snowflake dial.It has a maximum 72-hour (3-day) power reserve, and a power reserve indicator on the bottom left of the dial showing the amount in reserve. Wearers of this watch can enjoy a clear view of the movement through the see-through case back.
The SBGA211 is powered by Spring Drive, Grand Seiko’s unique caliber, which combines the motive force of a mainspring found with the high precision of a quartz watch.The case and bracelet are made with high-intensity titanium, providing a scratch and corrosion resistant finish, making it 30% lighter than stainless steel and a pleasure to wear.The blue steel second hand moves smoothly in glide motion, and glows over the contrasting pure white face to create an even more dramatic movement. It has a 72-hour (3-day) power reserve, and a power reserve indicator on the bottom left of the dial.
A Spring Drive model with a sharp, crisp impression combining ceramic and high-intensity titanium. This watch features a luxury sports design and a remarkable new hybrid titanium-ceramic bracelet construction. The flat shape of the case was developed with the aim of making the most of the unique characteristics of zirconia ceramic.Despite the difficulties of polishing ceramics, the beautifully crafted ceramic edges on the polyhedral shape are polished to a mirror finish and produce the intricate overlapping reflections that are the characteristics of the Grand Seiko design.The band's combination of these two different materials serves a practical purpose while also accentuating the design. As the zirconia ceramic parts are raised slightly above the level of the titanium, the bracelet is virtually impervious to scratches and will retain its pristine appearance. The second hand, minute hand, GMT hand and markers on the black dial are all finished with LumiBrite inserts to ensure high legibility.
