Description

colour depending on the light; it can look anything from an iridescent green to almost blue.

 

It’s said the new look of the Grand Seiko was inspired by the plumage of a peacock that’s fascinated man since time began. That may or may not be the case but whatever the inspiration, the strong green dial with stamped pattern is a breath of fresh air that’s not going to go unnoticed in a crowd.

 

The texture of the dial is subtle yet. Up close, you will see that this mesmerizing effect is the result of guilloche finishing combined with alternating raised and depressed areas, creating a slight sunburst effect.

 

This texture, intriguingly, all but disappears in many angles and less direct lighting. The dial is at once textured, yet incredibly smooth and glossy. It’s easily one of the most dynamic dials Grand Seiko has ever created, seemingly transforming both texture and colour based on the environment it’s placed in.

 

It’s this characteristic that makes this watch tricky to photograph because no single photograph can capture how it appears in real life.

 

 

The edges of the hands are so highly polished that they can be read pretty easily in pretty much anything other than total darkness

 

Casework as well is irreproachable, with crisply delineated transitions between brushed and polished surfaces; the brushing is even and very finely textured and the polished surfaces are mirror-bright, approaching black-polishing in terms of reflectiveness. 

 

For the Peacock, Grand Seiko has gone with a standard execution of the rotor for the caliber 9S86

 

9S86 is the 36,000 vph Grand Seiko caliber 9S85, with the addition of a GMT function.

 

Running at 36,000 vibrations per hour and offering a power reserve of a healthy 55 hours, accurate to +5 to -3 seconds a day.

 

A really nice feature is the screwed see-through case back giving you a view of this pieces beating heart. Through the case back you can see the titanium oscillating weight used for its properties of elasticity and vibration absorbance to reduce distortion on the rotor and impact on the bearings. Not only that, but the surface of the rotor has been treated with anodic oxidation process giving it a rich gold tone. I mean seriously, where else can you see this kind of attention to detail with materials technology?

 

The watch radiates a reassuring air of reliability and precision.

 

On the wrist it absolutely glows; this would be pretty much a picture perfect daily wear watch for anyone who travels a bit (or a lot)

 

Beautifully sized case dimensions of 40mm x 14.4mm thickness with a lug-to-lug of 44.9mm and 19mm between the lugs.
