The watch is offered as a limited edition of 1,500. Each individual serial number and the words ‘Limited Edition’ are engraved on the case back.
The dial has a deep blue color that captures the alluring beauty of the full moon in the night sky above the Shinshu mountains that can be seen from the studio in Shiojiri where this and all Grand Seiko Spring Drive watches are created. The sunray pattern catches the light at every angle and recreates the gentle sparkle that the moon casts over the landscape when it is at its very highest point in the sky. The signature glide motion seconds hand of Spring Drive is in a gold color and captures the grandeur of the night sky as it sweeps silently across the wide dial, bringing the wearer closer than ever to the serene and eternal nature of the passage of time. The minute and seconds hands are curved by hand so that they slope gently down towards the minute track at the edge of the dial, enhancing the legibility of the exact time. The watch is presented on a dark blue strap that harmonizes perfectly with the rich tone of the dial.
