In the Shinshu area of Japan, winter has its own special beauty. During the Shōkan 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 Shōkan 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.
A Spring Drive model with a classic case and blue Snowflake dial
The unique dial pattern is inspired by the wind-swept snow in the mountains of Shinshu. This texture is commonly known as the Snowflake and has gained popularity from around the world. To emphasize the delicate dial, it is treated with a subtle blue coloring.
A classic mechanism with a detailed focus, Spring Drive enables high precision equal to that of a quartz watch while using a mainspring used in a mechanical watch as a power source. The maximum winding duration is 72 hours. The movement of the blue steel second hand glides across the snow blue dial.
