Grand Seiko is producing some outstanding work this year and Watches & Wonders is the place to see it. Just superb detailing, next level craft. Respect.
The price? About £310,000 says the FT today. Yeah that beautiful art costs lots of time and money.
Here’s the word from GS;
Grand Seiko reaches a new milestone in its sixty-two year history with the introduction of its first mechanical complication watch, the Grand Seiko Kodo Constant-force Tourbillon.
At its heart is a uniquely innovative movement that combines a tourbillon and a constant-force mechanism as one unit on a single axis for the very first time in horological history and so delivers a level of stable accuracy unprecedented for Grand Seiko.
Watch the GS video here. it’s a ballet of balance;
Most remarkable of all is the way that the constant-force mechanism and the tourbillon have been integrated together to allow the creation of an overall design that is perfectly in harmony with the values of Grand Seiko and whose technical ingenuity is encased in a watch of great elegance and wearability.
The Grand Seiko Kodo will be available as a limited edition of twenty in October 2022.
