The fleeting beauty of Japanese spring expressed in an elegant gold dress watch.
After the passing of the spring equinox, or Shunbun, one of the traditional twenty-four divisions of the year in some Eastern cultures, we find ourselves in the true spring season, when we can see the cherry blossoms fluttering in the wind. Their petals blanket the surfaces of nearby rivers in a subtly delicate pink.
The dial captures the feeling of such a scene – of a mood that is uniquely Japanese, in which one appreciates the cherry blossoms still more even as they fall. The dial’s embossed pattern, like petals floating on water, and its relaxed pink color, bring a cheerful feeling to whoever glances at the watch. This elegant 18-karat rose gold dress watch is further distinguished by the harmony between the dual curve sapphire crystal and the flowing precious metal case with its refined form.
The watch is powered by the manual-winding Caliber 9R31, assembled by the skilled artisans of the Shinshu Watch Studio, where Grand Seiko Spring Drive watches are made.
