Grand Seiko Omiwatari

After seeing Sham recent posts of his "accidental" purchase of the Grand Seiko SBGY007, I decided to try one on.....and I was smitten on the spot. The amazing dial and the hand wound spring drive movement  - pure poetry in motion. Thanks Sham for the post, that push me to pull the trigger on this beauty as well. 

Some quick shots on the iPhone - don't really do much justice, the dial is much more alluring than the pics, you have to hold one in the hands to appreciate the subtle play of light and shadows. Really happy with this one.

Really a beautiful …

Watch with an impressive dial too. Congratulations to it. What is the case size, below 40mm?

Enjoy this precious piece.

Case size is a very wearable 38.5mm.

Love the dial and though I have the previous Snowflake which is also a Spring Drive movement, the SBGY007 is a hand wound Spring Drive movement which is icing on the cake.

Totally agree. It’s a unique piece 👌👍

As expected, this grand seiko punches far above its weight when it comes to finishing, dial work and chronometry.

Wear it in good health, and thanks for sharing

I am glad that my post influenced you into buying this watch. It really was a no brainer purchase which you have since discovered.  But what I really want to commend you on is not so much your excellent taste but your amazing photographic skills.  It really shows the dial at its best!!

Thanks Sham,

For the kind comments, will try to capture more angles of the beautiful shades of dial that depending on the time of day can be rendered silvery to shades of blue, really mesmerising

Yes agreed, the textured dial on this is pure class.

Though talking about beautiful dials, is another one of Sham's on his Laine V38. The salmon dial is haunting me now.....I am kind of scared to read Sham's post is dangerous to the wallet smile
