Nature is a key element of many replica Grand Seiko dial designs, But filtering through Japan’s unique perspective. The Grand Seiko dial does not directly display the elements of the natural world (the sun or moon or the literal representation of leaves, flowers and grass), but suggests these elements so that the viewer can freely interpret and interact with them. This can be clearly seen on the dials of watches such as Soko US Special Editions this year, which draws on the seasonal division of the traditional Japanese calendar, perhaps in one of the most famous Grand Seiko dials, the Grand Seiko dial. SBGA211 implies an area covered with fresh snow-the dial is the eye-catching element of the watch, and for Seiko enthusiasts, it is simply called Snowflake.
The dial itself is a key element in the experience of a Grand Seiko watch, but it is also the background of the movement of the hands and the shape and gloss of the applied indexes, which also make the surface treatment extremely high. . Grand Seiko hands are so exquisitely crafted and refined that they seem to bring precise abstract concepts into life – even in Grand Seiko replica watches review that don’t have luminous materials on their hands, they are usually so polished and can even read the time in the dark.
The hand of the watch is a craft of Grand Seiko itself – the most exquisite expression is the blued steel sweep second hand found in many Grand Seiko watches, once hand-blued at the Grand Seiko factory. .
From Hi-Beat to Spring Drive, caliber always promotes the development of design and technology.
The evolution of Grand Seiko watches necessarily means not only the evolution of watch aesthetics, but also the evolution of mechanical devices-in fact, it can be asserted that without a meticulously crafted movement, Grand Seiko watches will be just another beautiful face. . There are several basic types of Grand Seiko movements. There are standard manual and self-winding mechanical movements, but Grand Seiko still follows the tradition of high-frequency movements. This movement is the first Hi-Beat watch in the late 1960s in its modern Hi-Beat machine. Built in the core.
The Grand Seiko Quartz 9F movement is also part of a long and proud tradition-after all, Seiko introduced the first commercial quartz watch to the public on Christmas Day 1969, and its quartz movement is still some of the most reliable and accurate Movement. , And advanced technology in the world.
Finally, Grand Seiko uses the Spring Drive movement, which is unique in the watch industry. The Spring Drive watch is driven by a clockwork and has a traditional mechanical gear train, but this gear train not only drives the hands, but also drives the Spring Drive Tri-synchro regulator-a complex combination of micro generators, quartz oscillators and braking systems. The smoothly rotating Glide Wheel is responsible for smoothly rotating the second hand, which is the hallmark of all Spring Drive watches.
For Seiko, this year is especially important
Because it introduced two amazing new movements in the Spring Drive and Hi-Beat series-the latter has a new escapement.
The new 9RA5 movement is the latest Spring Drive movement launched earlier this year. It has many updates and upgrades to the classic 9R movement series. Compared with traditional mechanical movements and quartz movements, the basic advantages of Spring Drive still exist-Spring Drive does not rely on batteries, it is much more accurate than traditional mechanical movements.
