Grand Seiko has some of the most beautifully ornate dials in the watch industry and their new SBGK017 is another example of one of these jaw-dropping designs. The dial features a design inspired by Nanbu tekki ironware, a type of metalwork produced in Morioka in the Iwate prefecture. The technique dates all the way back to Japan's Edo period and is still used to this day. The intricate design is wrapped in a Zaratsu-finished 39mm stainless steel case and is powered by a 9S63 manually-wound movement with a 72-hour power reserve. 

The SBGK017 is exclusive to Grand Seiko's US-based boutiques.
