Grand Seiko’s SBGA211 is part of the Heritage Collection and is more commonly known as “The Snowflake”. The Snowflake is housed in a 41mm titanium case that is 49mm lug to lug, with a curved sapphire crystal and screw down crown that provides 100m of water resistance. This watch case, while having the comfort and low weight of titanium, is polished using the Grand Seiko Zaratsu technique and has a sheen that will deceive the eye into thinking it is stainless steel. Inside it has the Spring Drive 9R65 Caliber (assembled and adjusted by hand at the Shinshu Watch Studio) provides a smooth sweeping seconds hand with an astonishing precision of +/- 15 seconds per month, unprecedented for a watch powered by a mainspring. The beautiful movement provides 72 hours of power reserve, is anti-magnetic, and is visible behind a sapphire case back.

Grand Seiko is known for intricate dials and incredible casework utilizing Zaratsu polishing to create a mirror finish. This watch possesses perhaps the most well-known dials in the entire collection. The Shinshu Studio is surrounded by the Hotaka mountains that are covered in snow for several months a year. The color and texture of the dial is inspired by this snow being driven across the slopes by the crisp, dry wind, giving it a special light and delicate quality. A heat-blued steel seconds hand and “Spring Drive” in blue adds further visual interest. This Grand Seiko comes on a five-link satin finished titanium bracelet with a three-fold clasp and two half links to finely adjust the fit.
