CONCEPT

This model is a platinum cased Spring Drive jewelry watch whose design takes inspiration from the winter mornings in Shinshu,
the area where this and every Grand Seiko Spring Drive watch is made.

DESIGN

Diamond dust dial

Taking inspiration from the tiny ice crystals that shimmer on a cold, clear morning in the Shinshu region, the dial center has a "diamond dust" texture that creates a subtle sparkle and a unique beauty.
The constellation of Leo is subtly marked into the diamond dust textured dial.

Carefully selected and tapered baguette diamonds and blue sapphires surround the dial as minute and hour markers, set over an 18k white gold base.
The arrangement of the diamonds and sapphires side by side around the entire dial requires great dexterity; the gems are set between a very thin pair of rails with great precision by the most skilled of the jewelry craftsmen and women at the Shinshu Watch Studio.

Calibre 9R01

The watch is powered by the manual-winding 8-Day Spring Drive Calibre 9R01 made by hand by the elite team of watchmakers at the Micro Artist Studio which has its home in the Shinshu Watch Studio.
The calibre incorporates three barrels arranged in sequence to deliver the extended power reserve.
The exquisite finishing of the one-piece bridge, designed in the image of Mt.Fuji, and the rubies, which evoke the lights of Suwa city, can be seen through the case back.
