The natural beauty of Shizukuishi inspires a second manual-winding creation, also with an engraved dial.
"The 60th year of Grand Seiko, the natural beauty of Shizukuishi, the home of Grand Seiko’s mechanical watches, is celebrated in a new 18k rose gold cased watche. Powered by the manualwinding Caliber 9S64, this creation marks a new departure for the Elegance Collection and is a powerful symbol of
the vitality that the start of Grand Seiko’s new 60 year cycle represents.
This Shizukuishi-inspired watch features 9S64 manual-winding caliber but the case is in 18k rose gold and the dial has an intricate yet sharp pattern that only very precise machine engraving can achieve.
The dial pattern takes the imagination to the forest of silver birch trees near the studio where the watch is made. As the viewing angle changes, the dial shimmers in green and white, just as do the trees when summer sunlight catches the leaves and the white bark of their trunks and dapples the forest floor. The soft, natural feel of the watch is completed by the slim profile of the case and the curved dial whose contours are followed exactly by the hands that are shaped by hand."
