Grand Seiko “Shizuri-yuki”

Post by koimaster » October 25th 2021, 9:10am

Today’s post is about another new Grand Seiko release whose inspiration lies in the winter season.

To give some other examples, in 2020 Grand Seiko released its first jewellery piece as a part of the Grand Seiko Masterpiece Collection – a limited edition (ten pieces) platinum Spring Drive inspired by winter mornings in the Shinshu region in which the Micro Artist Studio, at which the Spring Drive watches are created, is situated. There was also the Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGY007, with a light blue hammered dial whose colour and texture was their evocation of the frozen surface of Lake Susa.

The new Elegance Spring Drive also derives its inspiration from the winters in Shinshu region. Grand Seiko say that “Shizuri-yuki” is the term used to describe a winter season view when snow spills down from the branches of trees, creating a cascade of light. Some of you may know of ‘Yuki-onna’ from Japanese folklore – a ‘Snow Lady’ spirit.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
