Grand Seiko Snowflake Watch

Seiko watches produced the best timepiece of the Grand Seiko collection

Grand Seiko is one of the most popular collections from Seiko Watches. If you look through the watches in the collection, the Snowflake would come out as the best among them. This has been proven through their sales numbers as well. People who own the Snowflake keep it close to their hearts and wear it at regular intervals. This is even true about watch lovers who have multiple high end luxury watches in their collection.

Why did Seiko Watches christen the model ‘Snowflake’? If you look at the watch dial, it reminds you off light snow covering the Alps mountaintop. Suwa, the region where Seiko Watches engaged in some of their watch making operations, is known for the winter with light snow fall which leaves a distinct drifting pattern. The watch maker got inspired by these snowflakes and created the watch. They made use of the extremely light material, titanium, in order to make it lightweight like the snowflakes. The usage of the blue color for the hands and for the lettering provides the chill associated with snow.
