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.
The Spring Drive GMT caliber 9R66 has long been a Grand Seiko favorite but never before has it been presented in such a dramatic design.Blue and gold interact on both the dial and bezel to create a watch that is perfect for the international traveler whether he is in the conference room or at the beach house.Above the 44 mm case sits a rotating bezel with an 18k yellow gold ring over which the sapphire crystal extends, giving the watch extra protection and a quietly powerful depth. The dual curved sapphire has an anti-reflection coating both inside and out to deliver enhanced legibility. The case and bracelet are in stainless steel and the watch is 20 bar water resistant.The Spring Drive GMT caliber delivers a precision rate of one second per day and has a power reserve of 72 hours. The GMT hand can be adjusted to local time without stopping the movement so that the watch’s accuracy is maintained even when the time zone is changed.
