The simple perfection of snow
Though it may be slim, small and minimalist in its design, this elegant quartz Grand Seiko watch exhibits in full the core values, precision, durability, ease of use and beauty, that are at the heart of Grand Seiko.
Its advanced 9F quartz caliber delivers a high precision rate of 10 seconds per year. The long minute and seconds hands reach right to the minute track to ensure that the time can be read exactly. The indexes are five-faceted and diamond-cut so that they stand out clearly from the dial and the 12 o’clock marker is distinct in design so that, whatever the viewing angle, the time is easily read at a glance.
Most striking of all, however, is the snow-inspired pattern of the pale blue dial. Made at the Shinshu Watch Studio, high in the mountains of central Japan, it has the texture and color of the snow that, for several months a year, is clearly visible to the Grand Seiko watchmakers who ply their many crafts there. The dial is clean, simple and has a quiet and serene beauty that somehow feels uniquely Japanese.

The three movements at the heart of Grand Seiko
One of the world's foremost mechanical movements, the culmination of high-precision micro-engineering and the attention to detail of Grand Seiko's expert watchmakers.
Spring Drive is a unique movement that delivers one-second-a-day precision, using just the power of a mainspring.
