The fascination of light and shadow

In Japanese culture, light and shadow are treasured. The Japanese have always loved the delicate nuances created by the harmony of light and shadow and the infinite gradations between them, which is why they play such an important role in traditional arts like Sado, the tea ceremony and Kado, the art of flower arrangement. Grand Seiko is suffused with this time-honored aesthetic. The interlocking flat surfaces are designed to reflect light and to create subtle shadows so that, as the watch moves through time and space, countless variations of shade can be enjoyed. Sometimes sparkling, sometimes softly recessive, SBGH279 presents an ever-changing tableau of visual charm.
