Asia Limited To 200 Grand Seiko 2014 New Seiko Models
I am optimistic about the development of the high-end watch market in Asia in 2014. As the watchmaking leader of Japanese watch brands, SEIKO (Seiko) is launching a brand-new 2014 for its top watch series Grand Seiko Watches, limited to 200 pieces in Asia.
The 2014 Grand Seiko new watch, which is exclusively launched for the Asian region, uses GS classic ocean blue as the overall face color, symbolizing the vast ocean world, allowing wearers to see the blue world from a macro perspective. Blueprint; In response to the uniqueness of Asia’s limited edition, the faceplate is designed with diamond-shaped lines and wavy lines interlaced, delicately delineating the luxurious atmosphere that sparkles like diamonds. In addition, the brand’s lion logo, which represents the king’s breath, is more rare On the diamond-shaped face plate, the reflection of light and shadow is swinged between the wrists, so that the sleeves can be elegantly presented with the ultimate and timeless taste.
The Asian limited edition Grand Seiko model launched this time uses the classic GS blue as the overall face color. The face plate uses diamond-shaped patterns and wavy patterns, symbolizing that Grand Seiko shines like a diamond on the world stage; and has the flavor of a king The lion logo is decorated with delicate lines and embossed on the cross-lined face plate, showing the ultimate and timeless taste.
Continuing the traditional style of ‘Seiko Style’, the metal of the bezel and the body is specially matched with matte and mirror textures to present a multi-layered three-dimensional texture. Both the hands and the time are made with multi-angle delicate carvings, and the 12 o’clock scale is in accordance with the classic and unchanged tradition. It is doubled in size compared to other times, highlighting the beauty of conflict and contrast. To improve visual recognition.
As one of the few watch factories in the world with 100% movement capability, Grand Seiko is one of the few watch brands in Asia that can keep pace with Europe and is also one of the few watch factories that are continuously improving the basic movement. This limited edition model is equipped with a 9S85 movement. It is a high-speed frequency movement that can vibrate up to 36,000 times per hour (10 times per second). ‘36,000 revolutions’ is the ‘balance wheel’ that determines the accuracy of mechanical watches for 1 hour. The number of vibrations strongly blocks external interference by high-speed vibration, suppresses the difference in accuracy caused by posture changes, and achieves more stable high accuracy.
In order to achieve this goal, Grand Seiko uses the latest technology MEMS (Micro-Electro Mechanical Systems) ‘Micro-Electro-Mechanical Casting Technology’ developed exclusively by SEIKO for many years to improve the surface smoothness and hardness of the parts; and creates a special storage on the escape wheel. Oil grooves, so more gear oil can be stored, which solves the problem of oil retention that is difficult for general high-speed mechanical watches. In addition, the escapement fork and escape wheel use hollow-out technology to achieve a lightweight design of 25% of parts, which greatly improves the efficiency of power transmission. Grand Seiko watches exceed the basic requirements of high specifications, making the movement more flexible, showing more stable accuracy, the new Spron material spring makes the released torque more average, energy is more abundant, so under high vibration conditions It still maintains a 55-hour power reserve, and only with the quality and precision of parts can the high frequency technology be demonstrated.
