The exterior design is a modern interpretation of the brilliant and shining timepiece defined as part of the idea of the Grand Seiko Style, the design concept that was established with the launch of 44GS in 1967.
The case utilizes perfect mirror-finished surfaces created using Zaratsu polishing, and combines beautiful and shining mirror-finished and hairline-finished surfaces for three-dimensionality. The expansive dial has twelve multi-faceted hour markers. The complementary arrangement of these elements gives the watch a beautiful radiance and visibility.
Caliber 9F85 has a time difference adjustment function that allows the hour hand to be adjusted without stopping the seconds hand and thus preserving its high precision when the wearer changes time zones.
A quartz movement depends on a battery as a power source. The battery sends electricity to a quartz oscillator, which vibrates at precisely 32,768 times per second. An integrated circuit (IC) detects these vibrations and sends out an accurate time signal every second to the step motor. The step motor activates in accordance with this time signal, accurately rotating a series of gears and the watch hands.
