Grand Seiko has dropped a trio of green-dialed, manually wound watches inspired by the dramatic landscape of the Genbi Valley in Japan.
New executions of fan favorite model, SBGW231, each piece features a textured dial in different shades of green “invoking the reflections of Genbi Valley’s trees and plants off the rushing waters below.”
The light and bright green dial of SBGW273 suggests new growth, while the teal dial of SBGW275 reflects the color of the flowing waters that have shaped the valley. The verdant green dial of SBGW277 takes its shade directly from foliage. Grand Seiko’s razor sharp polished hands and applied markers sits in strong contrast against the organic, random texture applied to the dial beneath.
Each watch uses a 37.3mm stainless steel case which houses a highly finished 9S64 manually wound movement visible through a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback. The movement features a 72-hour power reserve with -3/+5 second per day accuracy.
Dropping in November, SBGW273, SBGW275 and SBGW277 are US exclusives and limited to 140 pieces each, priced $4,900 USD. SBGW275 will be available exclusively from Grand Seiko boutiques and Grand Seiko online.
