The Asian Snowflake

The Asian Snowflake

Seiko SBGA211G


This dial is really cool when you come close to it.

The Grand Seiko Snowflake is a unique watch.

The blue secondhand made a great contrast to the dial.

The titanium case and bracelet and the size of 41mm diameter and 12,5 mm thick feels well balanced in the hand.

The oversized screwdown crown is a little too high in my opinion but easy to handle.

The lugs have a brushed top and the bevels and sides are polished.

The logo get the feeling is flows over the dial.

The 72 hours power reserve meter.

The logo at the folding clasp.

The 9R65 movement don't shows so much through the glassback but the finsh of what you see is awesome.

10 bar WR

There is a logo at the crystal too.

Those are so tiny.

It's a very elegant watch.

And of course a wrist shot.

As usual your photography is supreme Jocke! These shots of the GS Snowflake are breathtaking!! I have ordered ...

... (and full payed) a Snowflake for my collection and I received a call from the Seiko Miami Boutique two week ago telling me that my watch is waiting for me to take delivery of it.

Your awesome pictures added fuel to my anxiety to have this watch on my wrist!!.

Iยดm traveling this week end to the USA and I will visit the Boutique next week to get my GS..

With much pleasure I will post some pictures then, but of course they will be so far from the quality of yours.

Thanks a lot for sharing your work with us Jocke!

All the best, Abel.

Thanks my friend

I really hope you will be pleased with the watch and I look forward to your pics and your impressions.

Thanks a lot dear Jocke!! Iยดm sure I will enjoy so much this superb watch! It had been haunting my mind for some time and specially since I tried it on my wrist last October...

... when I visited the NY Boutique and viewed it there in the metal for first time. An impresive watch indeed!

Thank you again for your stunning shots!! Abel.
