Grand Seiko SBGA413 Shunbun Special Edition
Shunbun: The Vernal Equinox When sakura blossoms fall into water, they swirl and float. The pink blossoms dance on the water, and the Japanese call them flower rafts, hanaikada. The pink dial of this model captures the spirit of the fleeting sakura season.
What we have here is probably Grand Seiko's best release of the year. My first impression started off by loving the piece, but I felt like I was the only one. Let's face it, pulling off a pink dial for a men's watch is quite unheard of. Sure, salmon dials have been quite popular lately. Brands like Patek Phillipe embrace the color with their 5004G piece unique or AP; they embrace their Royal Oak 1522 with a beautiful salmon dial as we saw earlier this year. But the ‘go full’ pink is a different story.
As of right now judging by the comments in all of our videos and articles that have read, the pink on the dial of the SBGA413 is by far the most popular out of the four. How did Grand Seiko manage this? Well for starters it kind of makes sense. Around March, April and May it's springtime in Japan. Spring in Japan, however, is quite different from anywhere else. If you aren't aware of what it's like during these months, then the pink dial is probably a bit confusing. In a nutshell, during the spring, the cherry blossoms, also known as Sakura, are usually only in full bloom for around a week. After the full bloom, the flowers start to fall gracefully from the trees.
The blossoms are said to be the most beautiful in the final stage in Japan. The blooming of the cherry blossom tree symbolizes human life and nobleness according to the Japanese. Now we can obviously see the inspiration of the dial comes from the white and pink petals that float to the ground and they captured it quite beautifully. The dial does in fact play with the light quite drastically. In some lights it has a soft pink dial while in darker settings it turns into a soft shade of white, but still maintaining those little bits of shades of pink. Now out of all of the Grand Seiko Seasons collection, they definitely perfected this dial to perfectly showcase the spring inspiration. Now let's get the specifications of this watch out of the way. First, this watch has a 40-millimeter case with a 21 millimeter strap size and it has a thickness of 12.9 millimeters. However, as you can probably tell, the watch's bezel actually makes the watch appear a lot smaller on the wrist. Quite frankly, I can't see any wrist size that can't support this watch. So two out of the four models are actually made out of titanium; both the spring drive models which are the spring and the winter are made out of titanium and then the autumn and the summer are made out of stainless steel.
Now all four models actually still have this Zaratsu polishing. Zaratsu polishing, in a nutshell, is a mirror-like finish that people tend to love when it comes to Grand Seiko. In fact it actually kind of spoils you from any other type of finishing when you experience Zaratsu polishing for the first time. Now the movement inside this watch at the 9r65 spring drive caliber. This movement is accurate to plus or minus one second per day and/or plus or minus 10 seconds per month. If you're obsessed with accuracy and you absolutely love the ultra-smooth sweep of the spring drive movement, I would personally go with this watch (SBGA413) or the SBGA415. My overall thoughts: This watch is absolutely stunning especially in the metal.
When you tend to see it in pictures, sometimes the dial looks a bit more pink than you would like, however, if you see this watch in the flesh, many have said that this is their absolute favorite and I completely understand why. When it comes to all Grand Seiko four seasons, I can personally say that when it comes to springtime, the SBGA413 perfected it. That pinkish dial when it turns white, it looks absolutely stunning and there hasn't been a single lighting that I've seen this watch that didn't look great.
