Grand Seiko GMT Seasons Collection

Always looking to nature – as displayed by the nameplate’s recent ‘White Birch’ release – the brand has given the “seasons’ treatment to the GMT model. Here, it is powered by the 9S86 Hi-Beat or 9R66 Spring Drive movement and is available in dial colours of green (spring), light blue (summer), black (autumn), and silver for winter. The models are broken up into two different seizes with the spring and summer models coming in at 39.5mm ($10,600) and boasting the Hi-Beat movements while the autumn and winter models come in at 40.2mm ($9000) and are powered by the manufacture’s Spring Drive technology.
