Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGD202 8-Day Power Reserve 18k Rose Gold Watch

In recent years, Grand Seiko has increasingly launched artistic watches with technology, materials and stories to compete in a field previously dominated by high-end Swiss watch brands. A good example of this is the new Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGD202 18k Rose Gold 8-Day Power Reserve, which is similarly priced but aesthetically different from the platinum-cased 2016 Grand Seiko SBGD001 we see here in person. Of course, Grand Seiko offered a few things that the European brands couldn't, not the least of which was the Spring Drive movement with its eight-day power reserve - and plenty of Japanese 'inspiration'.

The SBGD001 has a platinum case with a white dial, while the Grand Seiko Spring Drive SBGD202 has a brown dial with a rose gold case for an overall drab yet cohesive look. Actually, the brand says the dial is black, but what appears to be flecks of gold makes me think it's brown. Seiko simply calls them "stars" and doesn't actually tell us what exactly causes the effect, except that it's produced by a "special process that combines plating and painting." I imagine it looks luxurious, in line with the dial of the platinum SBGD001 watch, which has a layer of shimmering diamond dust on the dial. As with most Grand Seiko watches, the legibility of the faceted hands and hour markers with a 'zaratsu' finish promises to be excellent.
