Introduced in Japan in 2005 and globally in 2010, the original Snowflake became an immediate hit, beloved for its unique dial that evokes the look of freshly fallen, lightly windswept snow found around Shinshu. This mesmerizing effect gives the dial ample dimensionality and results in a truly unique look. SBGA407 features this same delicate texture and renders it in a light blue hue. The case, with its beautiful box-shaped sapphire crystal and distortion-free finish, is a nod to classic Grand Seiko design. Emblematic of Spring Drive, the second hand glides around the dial, reflecting the continuous flow of time itself. The decorated caliber can be enjoyed through the exhibition case back.
