To mark 14 decades of Seiko timepieces, Grand Seiko has premiered it’s all new Seasons collection of GMT watches. With four iterations marking each season, the assembly of gorgeous pieces feature stainless steel cases, bracelets, and exhibition casebacks while differing in movement and dial design.
The Shōsho (summer) is possibly the most striking of the collection with its horizontally textured dial designed to call to mind the sun’s light playing across waves. Staring at this dial long enough induces daydreams of beaches and days at the lake. A blue GMT hand spins thanks to the 9S86 Hi-Beat movement inside the 39.5mm case. Water resistant up to 30m, the Shōsho SBGJ249 is up for a cool dip in the water on the hottest summer days.
