Unique Grand Seiko Kodo Constant Force Tourbillon SLGT001
One time for a good lead to.
On exceptional occasions, Grand Seiko results in unique versions of the watches. But it did so having a unique edition of the Kodo Constant-Force Tourbillon - some sort of one-off reference to SLGT001 , which will go under the claw at Phillips’ New York market on December 11, using a portion of the proceeds planning to children’s charities.
Anyone who has read our previous two-part in-depth story about the Kodo (the first for the watch, the second on it is technical features) will be familiar with impressive technical feat associated with its movement. The SLGT001 has all of these, but in an exceptional design made for auctions.
Engraved " Exclusive Piece No . 1/1" within the back, the SLGT001 is actually instantly recognizable as one of any kind.
While standard version of this type features a monochrome palette, typically the SLGT001 is distinguished by simply its colour: thermo-blue along with gold-plated parts contrast using rhodium-plated bridges. Most of the anchoring screws are blued steel, while three-armed tourbillon cage will be blued titanium.
The case material of SLGT001 is also outstanding. Unlike the normal model, which has a case created from titanium and platinum, this kind of watch is made entirely regarding bright-hard titanium, the brand's proprietary alloy that has a nicer, silverier hue than almost all titanium alloys.
A portion of the proceeds from someone buy of SLGT001 will go on the Children's Heart Foundation. Beyond the public good, the earning bidder will also get the possibility to meet the team behind SLGT001 at the Grand Seiko Work shop in Shizukuishi, a small village in northern Japan.
