In celebration of its long-standing partnership, Grand Seiko and Timeless Luxury Watches have teamed up to present a new limited-edition Grand Seiko piece.

Inspired by a blizzard in Shirojiri, Japan, where the Shinshu Studio is located, the Grand Seiko Spring Drive Limited Edition: SBGE249 is assembled and adjusted by hand. The design encapsulates a bold blue GMT hand, and while held at certain angles, contrasts with its mesmerizing shine and color like the beauty of heavy snow.

In both performance and appearance, the limited-edition watch expresses the best of Grand Seiko’s watchmaking. It features Grand Seiko’s unique Spring Drive caliber, launched 20 years ago this year and combining the moving force of a mainspring with high precision. The blued-steel GMT hand moves gracefully over the white blizzard dial further highlighting a glide motion that reflects the natural and continuous flow of time itself.

The caliber has a high accuracy of +/-10 seconds per month and a power reserve of 72 hours. Encased in stainless steel and a bracelet with tri-fold push button release clasp, the sapphire crystal see-through case-back showcases the Grand Seiko Lion emblem in blue metallization.

The Timeless Limited Edition: SBGE249 will be made available in August/September 2019
