Unveiling its deep sensibilities and a reverence for the Japanese passage of time, Grand Seiko has reimagined the iconic 62GS design with four new timepieces for its Heritage Collection.
The new watches celebrate The Nature of Time and commemorate Japan’s 24 sekki that mark nature’s ever-changing seasons. The sekki offer a poetic journey as nature awakens, blossoms, matures, and settles into slumber from the beginning of spring, known as risshun, to the glistening cold of winter known as daikan.
When sakura blossoms fall into the water, they swirl and float. The pink blossoms dance on the water, and the Japanese call them flower rafts, hanaikada. The pink dial of this model captures the spirit of the fleeting sakura season.
Starting with the beginning of spring (Risshun), the first of the lunar year, the season comes to life when the snow gives way to rain (Usui), and creatures awaken from hibernation (Keichitsui). As day equals night (Shunbun), the pure sky and renewal of nature come into existence (Seimei).
