Grand Seiko’s on a little bit of a roll in the case of dials impressed by Japanese phrases. The Japanese have a phrase for it, whether or not it’s the swaying of white birch timber in snow or the crystalline formations of frost on leaves. It jogs my memory of Apple’s promoting of the App Retailer for iPhones again after they had been new, in the identical method, that in case you have an issue to be solved, “there’s an app for that”, the Japanese have a phrase for absolutely anything regardless of how seemingly area of interest.
