Commemorating the 160th birthday of Hattori Kintaro replica Grand Seiko launches Masterpiece Collection limited edition platinum watch To commemorate the 160th anniversary of Hattori Kintaro’s birth, Grand Seiko (Crown Blue Lion) miniature art workshop launched the Masterpiece Collection limited edition platinum watch (model: SBGZ005). The round 950 platinum case has a diameter of 37.5 mm and is finished with the brand’s famous Zaratsu super mirror polishing technology. The curved sapphire crystal is anti-glare treatment to ensure perfect readability. The fake watch is only 9.6 mm thick, slim and exquisite, with a 30-meter water resistance and 4,800A/m antimagnetic performance.
Grand Seiko revealed that “the dial has undergone multiple processes to present a delicate and layered pattern effect.” An octagonal logo is decorated above the 6 o’clock position on the dial, indicating that the hands and hour markers are made of 14K white gold. On the white dial, triangles radiate from the center to the outer edge, and the texture and pattern of each triangle are different. Grand Seiko uses this to show that the light and shadow can create infinite brand aesthetics.
This watch is equipped with the Spring Drive Caliber 9R02 movement, which is manually assembled, adjusted and retouched by craftsmen in the micro art workshop. The Caliber 9R02 movement can be called the pinnacle of Grand Seiko movement finishing, comparable to Credor’s beloved Eichi II watch movement. This movement is equipped with a double barrel and a torque return system, which can provide up to 84 hours of power reserve. The movement has a power reserve display function, and the average daily error can be controlled within ±1 second.
It is worth mentioning that the movement also has an 18K gold nameplate with the words “Micro Artist” engraved on the nameplate. But according to Grand Seiko, the engraving pattern can be customized according to the owner’s wishes. The Grand Seiko Masterpiece Collection limited edition platinum watch uses a black alligator leather strap with a triple-folding button switch clasp.
