Elegance Collection

Blue skies and driven snow

In the Shinshu area of Japan, winter has its own special beauty. During the Shokan "sekki" or season, the lakes are covered with ice, the air is sharp and dry and the sky takes on a deep blue hue that colors the snow that covers the mountains.
The magic of Shinshu in Shokan is captured in this dial, which has the rich texture of driven snow and a unique blue tone. Like every Spring Drive Grand Seiko watch, this "Blue Snowflake" reflects the landscape around the facility where it was created and reveals another aspect of the nature of time.

Features

Spring Drive "Snowflake blue" dial model

The Snowflake dial used for the first time in 2005 was coloured with pale blue to image the snow from the Shinshu Watch Studio, the birthplace of Spring Drive.
It has succeeded in realising a designer's idea of expressing the beauty of Shinshu on the dial, and is characterised by a texture that shows a rough snow surface, which is caused by severe cold.
The design embodies a pure classical elegance with a box-shaped sapphire crystal, Zaratsu polished lugs, and a blue steel seconds hand complementing the Snowflake dial.
It has a maximum 72-hour (3-day) power reserve, and a power reserve indicator on the bottom left of the dial showing the amount in reserve.
Wearers of this watch can enjoy a clear view of the movement through the see-through case back.
