The Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000

Post by koimaster » July 17th 2021, 7:59pm

The peacock is a bird that has inspired many ideas and myths throughout history. The ancients believed that peacocks symbolized immortality, while other cultures have seen renewal and even the ability to be all-seeing in this beautiful bird. All over the world, the peacock continues to intrigue and fascinate mankind. Once seen, a peacock’s plumage is never forgotten and its beauty is universally acknowledged.

The dial of the latest Grand Seiko Hi-beat 36000 captures this beauty. With its deep green color and stamped pattern, the dial is at once striking and yet subtle.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Stamped? Really? At this level i feel it's reasonable to expect guilloche.
Seiko makes dials in guilloche patterns but none of them are made by hand, engine-turned, that is. ---Ed. The real deal would be a nice touch indeed, but the price would likely be up there with the haute Swiss and German brands for GS watches with genuine hand turned dials.

I've heard, but haven't been able to verify, that the nicest of Seiko's dials are "oil pressed" which is supposed to yield finer detail but is nevertheless a method of stamping or embossing.

For those interested, very cool video from RGM of Roland Murphy at work:

I think it's reasonable to expect a guilloche dial on a $10k+ watch.
