Grand Seiko SBGA211 Snowflake
A very clear example is the dials. Many are specially finished with due reverence to where they were born. The Spring Drive model SBGA211 has a dial known as the â€śSnowflake.â€ť It was designed in the image of the Hotaka mountain range covered with snow, which can be seen from the Shinshu Watch Studio in Shiojiri. The mechanical model SBGJ201 has a "Mount Iwate ridge dial" inspired by the strong ridges of the famed Mount Iwate, which is visible from the Shizuku-ishi Watch Studio. Both express their creatorsâ€™ deep affection for their respective birthplaces.
