This “go-anywhere” Spring Drive GMT watch looks as good at the office as it does at home but has a dial that is inspired by the landscape where it was created. It has a delicately textured surface pattern that echoes the morning mist that envelops the mountains of Nagano, the home of Spring Drive, in winter.
Made of high-intensity titanium, which is 30% lighter than stainless steel, it is light on the wrist and the joy to wear. And yet it delivers a powerful combination of practical functions. The GMT hand allows a second time zone to be read at a glance. The 9R66 caliber delivers a power reserve of three days and, like all Spring Drive watches, the seconds hand moves in perfect, silent glide motion like time itself. With 10 bar water resistance, a see-through case back, an anti-reflective coating on the inner surface of the sapphire crystal, this is a GMT watch for every occasion.
In 2020, Grand Seiko introduced a new design philosophy called the Evolution 9 Style. It was based, of course, on the Grand Seiko Style which has always defined the design of all Grand Seiko watches and continues to do so. The Evolution 9 Style preserves the fundamentals of the Grand Seiko Style but adapts them for a new generation by setting new standards of legibility, comfort and beauty.
Ever since its creation in 1960, Grand Seiko has evolved continuously as new technologies, materials and ideas have opened up new design possibilities and the Evolution 9 Style is another step forward on this never-ending road. It was developed to further refine the aesthetics that have been at the heart of Grand Seiko from the start and to renew them for the years to come.
