Bengaluru, September 5, 2017: A new edition of the masterpiece Grand Seiko Spring Drive is announced. Basel World 2016 saw the release of the much celebrated Grand Seiko Spring Drive 8 day power reserve. It was the work of the Micro Artist Studio in Seiko's facility in central Japan. A new version of this Grand Seiko is announced. The watch presents an entirely different view of the beauty of Japan, which is inspired by the night sky in the mountains. The 18k rose gold case frames a black dial through which the stars twinkle just as they do on a clear dark night in central Japan, adding extra depth and richness to the dial.

Thanks to a special process that combines both plating and painting, the dial has a fascination all of its own. As if sprinkled with stardust, the dial is at once mysterious and yet perfectly legible, thanks to the deep black  of the background, the sparkles of the stars that shine out from it and the five-faceted profile of the hands and hour markers. The razor edge polishing of the hands and markers gives this creation the unique Grand Seiko signature, as does the exquisitely sharp mirror finish achieved by our new Zaratsu technique that was developed for the platinum version.

The beauty of the night is echoed both in the dial and through the case back. This remarkable watch will be available in September.
