[SOLD] Grand Seiko Snowflake SBGA011

History

This models nickname in the factory is the Snowflake. It is an homage to small place called, Suwa.
Suwa is almost dead center in the middle of Japan, and because of this, the humidity level is lower than in other parts of the country. Because of this lower humidity, the snow fall during the winter is very light and airy. This allows the wind to sculpt the snow lying on the ground to make beautiful patterns. They set out to create a dial which resembled this light snow fall and patterns. In this, the SBGA011 Grand Seiko “Snowflake” was born. It is a unique 6 step process to replicate the snowfall in the dial. While the most complex dial in the Grand Seiko line takes 12 steps to complete, this “Snowflake” still one of the most intricate dials in the series.

The case and bracelet of this model are made from Seiko’s in house developed and patented “High-Intensity” Titanium. This titanium is slightly stronger than stainless steel, and also about 40% of the weight, making it “as light as a snowflake”.

The blue second hand (and text of SPRING DRIVE) was to complete the winter character of this timepiece. They wanted to give the watch “the cold feel”. This adds just enough detail to make the piece really stand out.

To complete this Grand Seiko piece, they chose their Spring Drive for the movement. It had nothing to do with snow, but was for good reason. They only wanted their finest movement in the piece that represented their hometown. Spring Drive has the beauty and the accuracy to be more than qualified as the right movement for the job.
