WHY THIS WATCH
Founded in 1960, Grand Seiko has gone through many changes an evolutions over the last 6 decades. At last, it seems like the latest offerings from Grand Seiko are serious contenders for the Swiss alternatives.
This particular Grand Seiko Spring Drives takes it's inspiration from nature. The dial is inspired Lake Suwa in Japan. The lake goes through a deep freeze in the winter giving it the same icy blue, rippled look as the dial. Along the case, you'll find the same zaratsu finish that made Grand Seiko famous. At 38.5mm in diameter and 10.2mm thick, this watch is going to fit most people like a glove.
This watch is powered by the SpringDrive reference 9R31, which has a 72 hour power reserve and was set to +or- 1 second a day from the factory. The back is nicely finished in the utilitarian style that has become the trademark of Grand Seiko.
On the wrist, this watch is really all dial. Besides the amazing fit, the dial jumps out as the distinguishing feature, changing color and texture depending on the lighting. The Black strap has blue stitching on the sides, probably the ideal combination for this watch. Honestly, this one might unseat the Grand Seiko Snowflake as the ultimate. Retail price is $8,300.
THE LITTLE DETAILSWatch was purchased from an AD in 2021. Watch is Near Mint, worn only a handful of times, and comes with the full set of box, manual and paperwork, including warranty card from August 2021. The case and black strap are all around 95%.
