A mechanical GMT showcasing a spectacular dial that depicts the color of autumn leaves reflected in traditional lacquered flooring
In Japan, the charms of changing seasons are woven into the fabric of everyday life. Taking up this concept, the latest Grand Seiko mechanical Hi-Beat 36000 GMT expresses the beauty of autumn as it might be experienced in a traditional Japanese building with floors of lacquered wood. There, light pours in through windows, and the ebullient reds of autumn leaves outside reflect off the floorboards in a mesmerizing display of nature’s beauty.
Each dial has a striated surface depicting a spectrum of reds, calling to mind how some lighter or darker floorboards might reflect varied shades of changing leaves. The GMT hand, rendered in a rich golden hue, adds another fall color to the dial.
