The fusion of the classical and the contemporary
At first glance, this design series is purely classical but, on closer examination, its appeal is multi-layered and richer still. Every watch has the soft design and rounded structure that characterized the earliest Grand Seiko creations. The gently curved lugs with delicate Zaratsu polishing and the box-shaped sapphire glass further enhance the authentic, classic feeling. At the same time, however, the sharpness of every edge on the hands and indexes and the crispness of every line add a more modern tone.
All the signature elements of Grand Seiko are here. The sharply cut hands and indexes, the mirror surfaces of the Zaratsu polished case and the wide dial opening that lets in all available light. Yet the design is both unique and memorable. The secret is in the long, flowing lines. Kosugi’s artistry is evident in every detail. As he says, “The uniqueness of this watch lies in the side slopes of the gently curved lugs.”
