That is the third Grand Seiko (and fourth Seiko) launch I’ve written about within the final two weeks, and I might identical to to take a second to ponder a thought that ran via my head. Does Grand Seiko make use of somebody solely to stroll round and observe Japan earlier than submitting studies of textures and colours that is likely to be dial-worthy? Apparently, yuka momiji – « flooring maples » in English – just isn’t a novel remark, which is fascinating. Regardless, I can not say I’ve as soon as seen the colour of leaves reflecting off the ground, not to mention thought of texture, gentle, and coloration in the best way that Grand Seiko’s workforce does. And that is saying one thing as a result of, as a photographer, I make my dwelling fascinated about texture, gentle, and coloration. Now that I give it some thought, it appears like a dream job.
