That is the third Grand Seiko (and fourth Seiko) launch I’ve written about within the final two weeks, and I would 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 stories of textures and colours that is perhaps dial-worthy? Apparently, yuka momiji – “ground maples” in English – isn’t a novel statement, which is fascinating. Regardless, I am unable to say I’ve as soon as observed the colour of leaves reflecting off the ground, not to mention considered texture, gentle, and colour in the best way that Grand Seiko’s group does. And that is saying one thing as a result of, as a photographer, I make my dwelling eager about texture, gentle, and colour. Now that I give it some thought, it feels like a dream job.
