GRAND SEIKO FOUR SEASONS EXHIBITION - NOW ON - MAY 2021 NEWS
A new series of Grand Seiko GMT watches celebrates ever-changing seasons
In Japan, each of the four seasons of the year is experienced in six phases and all have their own distinct characters.
The subtle changes from one to the next bring the nature of time ever closer to our senses. Each of these GMT watches celebrates one of the year’s 24 seasonal phases or sekki. The softly contoured case has the classic yet distinctive Grand Seiko edges that are sharp and angular, and the sides are Zaratsu polished to a distortion-free finish. Both the mechanical and Spring Drive movements are clearly visible through the sapphire case backs and the beauty of their finishing is there to be enjoyed.
Shunbun - SBGJ251 (Spring)
The selected sekki are Shunbun (Spring) , Shōsho (Summer), Kanro (Autumn) and Tōji (Winter).
The Shunbun and Shōsho versions feature the Hi-Beat 36000 GMT caliber 9S86 while the Spring Drive GMT calibre 9R66 powers the Kanro and Tōji creations.
Shōsho - SBGJ249 (Summer)
High summer approaches and, at last, the rainy season ends. In Shōsho, the warm wind creates delicate ripples in the many thousands of lakes and ponds that shimmer in the early summer sun throughout Japan.
The wave pattern dial brings Shōsho to life.
Based on a series first presented in the USA, the Shunbun and Shōsho creations are currently available at our Sydney salon and the Kanro and Tōji creations will be made available in September to J Farren-Price.
