October 13, 2017, Bangalore: The peacock is a bird that has inspired many ideas and myths throughout
history. The ancients believed that peacocks symbolized immortality, while
other cultures have seen renewal and even the ability to be all-seeing in this
beautiful bird. All over the world, the peacock continues to intrigue and
fascinate mankind. Once seen, a peacock’s plumage is never forgotten and its
beauty is universally acknowledged.
The dial of the
latest Grand Seiko Hi-beat 36000 captures this beauty. With its deep green colour
and stamped pattern, the dial is at once striking and yet subtle. The case and
movement are the same as in the
celebrated watch that won the “Petite Aiguille” award prize at the Grand
Prix de Genève in 2014.
The hi-beat GMT movement 9S86 is assembled in
the Shizukuishi Watch Studio where all Grand Seiko mechanical watches are
manufactured and assembled, by hand, by the studio’s craftsmen and women.
In both performance and appearance, it expresses the very
best of Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking. The
caliber has a high accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds a day and a power reserve of 55
hours. The GMT hand can be used as a dual time indicator with the hour hand
being adjustable independently as the time of day hands continues to mark time.
It is the perfect watch for the international traveller.
The case is a contemporary re-interpretation of the
acclaimed 44GS design from 1967 that set the Grand Seiko style. Like every
Grand Seiko watch, it offers highly polished, distortion-free surfaces, razor
edged hands for high legibility and perfect comfort on the wrist.
