Celebrating the two companies’ long-standing partnership, Japanese luxury watchmaker Grand Seiko has collaborated with Texas-based timepiece store Timeless Luxury Watches to create a 250-unit limited-edition using the former brand’s unique Spring Drive movement.

The design of the watch was inspired by a blizzard in Shirojiri, Japan, where Grand Seiko’s Shinshu Studio is located, with a deep blue GMT hands cast against a contrasting white blizzard dial reminiscent of the “beauty of heavy snow.” Assembled and adjusted by hand, the timepiece boasts a 41 mm stainless-steel case housing Grand Seiko’s signature Spring-Drive 30-jewel Caliber 9R66, holding a power reserve of 72 hours with an exceptional accuracy of +/-10 seconds per month. The watch is water resistant to 10 bar, and features both a dual-curved sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on the top, and a sapphire see-through caseback on the bottom, revealing the brand’s Lion emblem with a blue metallic finish.

For watch aficionados interested in the Timeless Luxury Watches x Grand Seiko Limited Edition SBGE249, the watch will be released late August to early September, and will retail for $5,900 USD. Timeless Luxury Watches is now taking pre-orders over at its online store. Only 250 will be made, so act fast.

Elsewhere in watches, Junghans has released a special edition Max Bill Chronoscope celebrating 100 years of Bauhaus.
