READINGS

At the heart of Grand Seiko is an intriguing and understated narrative of Japanese heritage and aesthetics. The legendary poet Jun’ichiro Tanizaki once described beauty not in the object, rather the degree of lightness, darkness and shadow it protrudes. I believe this literature in 1933 still applies to Grand Seiko and its counterparts ie. Kurono by Hajime Asaoka, N.Hida by Naoya Hida & Kikuchi Nakagawa. There is a singular and subtle sensitivity that resonates across all these creations, all from a single nation. Rather than describing Grand Seiko as a watch manufacturer, I tend to think of them as an extension of Japanese tradition and innovation.

The SBGT241 is no exception to its philosophy while commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the 9F Calibre. The stunning 9F motif dial features an extremely accurate timekeeping within 5-seconds per year from this calibre with Zaratsu finishing, directly derived from sword-making tradition towards the sweeping hands. The finishing results in significant glare yet accurately mirroring light and shade - a double edged condition which retracts light towards the specific dial. The dial is perhaps derived from the traditional paper screens ‘Shoji’ which absorbs light and radiates throughout its surface. The white and silver interplay of the motif dial is a testimonial to GS’s incredible dial manufacturing over the past century.

Limited to 1500 pieces worldwide, this is a lovely piece to celebrate Japanese watchmaking with a humble presence.
