The 1967 44GS watch first embodies the design code known as “Grand Seiko Style,” a set of nine principles that give Grand Seiko its unique look and still inspire every new creation. Now, 55 years after the 44GS design debuted, a limited-edition hand-wound watch with a slender case silhouette fully embodies “Grand Seiko style”, with a dial inspired by the beauty of northern Japan’s spring, all Grand Seiko mechanical watches Made here.
With four unique seasons, Japan’s natural world offers a rich variety of attractions that are both ephemeral and memorable. One of them is Sakura Corner, a brief moment in spring where snow and cherry blossoms coexist in northern Japan. The dial of this new piece is a delicate pink and slightly silvery tones that perfectly capture the moment when the cherry blossoms emerge from the snow, sparkling and beginning to melt in the spring sun.
What makes this high quality replica watches unique is that it combines a slim 36.5mm profile with all the features that make the 44GS such an unforgettable and long-lasting design. To achieve this, every aspect of the watch’s construction has been reconsidered. The design of the case takes full advantage of the slim nature of the Grand Seiko manual-winding Calibre 9S64, while retaining the flat surfaces and sharp angles of the original 44GS. The slim bezel, hour markers and hands complement the case design for a fresh and classic Grand Seiko look.
The movement is hand-assembled by artisans at Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi, and the case is hand-polished by Zaratsu without distortion, which has always been the hallmark of the “Grand Seiko Style”. “
