Grand Seiko shows how time can flow naturally

Grand Seiko shows how time can flow naturally

shopping January 17, 2019 12:35

By The Nation

The embodiment of Japanese aesthetics and artisanal techniques, Spring Drive has long been praised for its perfect glide motion second hand.

Now Japanese luxury watch brand Grand Seiko is demonstrating this technique in the exhibition “The Flow of Time” running from January 21 to 27 at Central Embassy.

The exhibition includes an installation featuring Grand Seiko’s Spring Drive movement with two Japanese artists teaming up and inviting guests to experience and explore the Spring Drive through two main elements: the Installation “Approach to Time” by Satoshi Yoshiizumi of the TAKT Project and the movie “Kizamu / Nagareru” by Shingo Abe.

A collection of Grand Seiko watches will also be displayed and an expert craftsman will be on hand to demonstrate the assembly of the Grand Seiko movement.

The smooth movement of the Spring Drive’s second hand, which glides across the dial without a sound, brings to mind the natural flow of nature.

Yoshiizumi’s installation features an enormous visual screen that transforms the transience of time into space into which 7 clear objects are neatly lined up. By examining the objects closely, the viewer can see more than 200 watch parts integrated with the constantly moving scenery and creating its own microcosm. The small twinkling spots of light surrounding the parts demonstrate the existence of electricity generated by the parts themselves, Walk along the 7 objects and the parts are formed into a watch movement. The complete watch movement will continue to display time even though it is sealed inside the object: this is where the flow of time never ceases to exist.

The creation process of the watch movement and how it is complemented by the moving scenery shows time in transience. The combination of the moving scenery and the object is an enormous spatial device, where you can experience the philosophy of Grand Seiko embodying the essence of time.

The movie “Kizamu/ Nagareru” by Abe presents the trail of the sun drawing an arch in the sky. The history of timepieces began by “ticking” this natural arching “movement” with time transformed from what used to “flow” to something that “ticks.” In their pursuit for better performance, mechanical watches demonstrated a higher precision with the “ticking” of time. Now time is returning to its “flowing” movement once again.

Multiple exposure captures an enormous number of moments and installs them into one photo while long exposures trap the flow of time into a single image. The collaboration of the multiple exposure and long exposure represent the return to nature approach made possible by the ultimate Spring Drive. The contrast between the “ticking time” and “flowing time” is shown in this piece.

Issey Miyake kicks off 2019 with a new series of Twelve Metallic watches, designed by internationally renowned talent Naoto Fukasawa.

First launched in 2005, the Twelve Series has an ultra-simple display with bold, chunky hands, a dodecagonal glass exterior on the case and no numbers or abbreviations on the dial at all, reflecting Fukasawa’s unique approach to design.

While the original models had a soft look, the new watches come complete with a hairline finish for the bezel, case and back cover to emphasise the texture of the metal and dodecagonal concept and taking the “chunk of metal” style to the next level.

This collection offers a choice between silver metallic and gunmetal grey dials. The silver metallic version displays a stainless steel case and black leather band, while gunmetal grey dial brings together stainless steel gunmetal Ion-Plating (GIP) and dark grey leather band.

A combination of top-notch elements allows the high-performing watch to be waterproof to an extreme depth of 3,900 metres.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II in 18 ct Everose gold” is precise, reliable, robust and functional and takes pride in its status as the watch for long-haul pilots.

For 90 years, Mickey Mouse has resided in the hearts of fans around the globe – ever since his big-screen debut on November 18, 1928, in “Steamboat Willie”.

To celebrate the occasion, the Walt Disney Thailand has unveiled “The ESP Mickey Mouse Collection”, including clothing, shoes, caps and scarves created by the design firm ESP.

Pictures of Mickey and his cartoon friends are prominent in the streetwear-style gear, along with other fun graphics.

Lacoste has meanwhile decorated some of its apparel, sneakers and leather goods with more than 30 retro graphic designs of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, celebrating Mr Mouse’s status as the “True Original”, who is loved all over the world. Lacoste is still a kid compared to Mickey, but this also happens to be its 85th anniversary.

And fashion brand Cath Kidston is again collaborating with Disney for another collection dedicated to Mickey and other favourite Disney characters.

Then there are Brazilian sandals brand Havaianas, which has put Steamboat Willie on its flip-flops, and Pandora, which features Mickey on its charm bracelets in signature materials like Sterling Silver and Pandora Rose.

For the home, Fountain offers bedding of soft and lightweight micro-fibre fabric that’s designed to invoke sweet Mickey Mouse dreams. Find it at leading department stores everywhere.

Mickey and Minnie both feature on cakes or cookies sold at S&P. Buy Bt1,000 worth of treats and you get a foldable, limited-edition Disney bag valued at Bt490.

Pick up a bottle of Aquani water and there he is again, in three collectible bottle designs available until January 31 at Jiffy stores, Tops Supermarket, The Mall, Max Mart and Villa Market.

Make Mickey part of your beauty routine with U Star’s new line of cute cosmetics, the “Mickey the True Original” collection, including liquid and matte lipsticks, eyeliners and shine-control powders. They’re sold only at King Power Rangnam.

Varinda has a facemask in lovely Mickey Mouse designs. The black sheet contains charcoal to draw out impurities and ensure deep cleansing. That’s at Watsons for Bt59, complete with a “buy one, get one free” promotion.
