A delight to behold. A pleasure to use.
The dial and the buttons of the Grand Seiko Spring Drive chronograph are unique. More importantly, they are unique for reasons of pure functionality. Even though it has four sub-dials and eight hands, the dial is easy to read and welcoming to the eye. Similarly, the shape of the buttons assists the precision of the chronograph; thanks to the precision of Spring Drive, the column wheel system for smooth operation control and the vertical clutch for precise transmission, this is the most precise spring-driven chronograph ever made and the accuracy of its elapsed time measurement is supported by the ergonomic and practical design of the buttons.
The seconds hand moves in perfect glide motion, echoing exactly the smooth, continuous flow of time itself. Power reserve of 72 hours. Automatic winding. 43.5 mm stainless steel case.
