The peacock is a bird that has inspired many ideas and myths throughout history. The ancients believed that peacocks symbolized immortality, while other cultures have seen renewal and even the ability to be all-seeing in this beautiful bird. All over the world, the peacock continues to intrigue and fascinate mankind. Once seen, a peacock’s plumage is never forgotten and its beauty is universally acknowledged.
The dial of the latest Grand Seiko Hi-beat 36000 captures this beauty. With its deep green color and stamped pattern, the dial is at once striking and yet subtle.
The case is a contemporary re-interpretation of acclaimed 44GS design from 1967 that set the Grand Seiko style. Like every Grand Seiko watch, it offers highly polished, distortion-free surfaces, razor edged hands for high legibility and perfect comfort on the wrist.
Multi-faceted rectangular markers and hands, one of the iconic characteristics of Grand Seiko, make legibility easy, even in low light conditions.
The hi-beat GMT movement 9S86 is designed, made, assembled, adjusted and tested at the Shizukuishi Watch Studio in where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are manufactured and assembled, by hand, by the studio’s craftsmen and women.
In both performance and appearance, it expresses the very best of Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking. The calibre has a high accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds a day and a power reserve of 55 hours. The GMT hand can be used as a dual time indicator with the hour hand being adjustable independently as the time of day hands continue to mark time. It is the perfect watch for the international traveler.
