Spring Drive starts its second year with two new creations, the
Moon Phase and the GMT
2006, the international Spring Drive collection has been expanded
to include two new calibers, expressed in three new references,
and bringing the size of the total collection to nine watches.
These additions provide a new vision of the 'circle' design concept
that characterises the whole collection and yet maintain their
own individual appeal.
Spring Drive Moon Phase
another graceful expression of the natural and continuous motion
of time, the silver color moon-shaped plate on the blue mother
of pearl disc creates the serene and refined appeal of this elegant
new timepiece, marking the continuous progress of the moon across
the night sky.Not only the dial conveys the magical imagery of
the moon. The movement itself is engraved to complete the harmony
of the complete design, with the bridge and rotor portraying the
fan-shaped pattern of moonlight radiating out from the glide wheel.
The true and universal nature of time is thus represented in every
part of the watch.It is offered as a limited edition of just 200,
with the individual number engraved on the movement, visible through
the sapphire case back.

SEIKO Spring Drive GMT
With its high
accuracy and complete energy autonomy, Spring Drive is the perfect
watch for the traveler. With the addition of the 24-hour hand, the
SEIKO Spring Drive GMT becomes the ideal timepiece for the international
set. Time zone adjustment could not be more simple. Just by turning
the crown, a different time zone can be set without affecting the
precision on the second hand. The power reserve indicator is set
deep into the dial to allow the time-of-day and 24-hour hand to
glide over the dial surface, thereby maintaining the integrity of
the original design.

SEIKO launches Spring Drive, the only watch in the world to represent
the true motion of time.
is the most important new movement created by SEIKO since the quartz
Astron in 1969. It is based on the foundation of all mechanical
watch technology, a mainspring, but uses an entirely new system
for time regulation that delivers the equivalent to 1 second per
day accuracy, and, uniquely, glide-motion hands that represent the
continuous, even motion of time. Spring Drive. The Quiet Revolution.
Spring Drive in numbers
Spring Drive is an important milestone in the history of watch-making,
and will take its place alongside other developments like the creation
of the escapement, the invention of the mainspring and the harnessing
of quartz, as defining moments in the story of time. The launch
of Spring Drive is a breakthrough moment for the science of timekeeping.
Its technological advances are many and varied, as its numerical
