Grand Seiko says its just-released limited edition Hi-beat 36000 GMT is inspired by the beauty of the peacock.

The watch, which houses Grand Seiko’s 9S86 automatic mechanical movement, has a deep green dial with a stamped pattern.

The case, based on a 1967 design, along with the 9S86 movement, is the same combination as in the watch that won the Petite Aiguille prize at the Grand Prix de Genève in 2014.

It is a 40mm watch with sapphire crystal front and back. Only 700 are being made, priced at €7,700 (£6850).

“Assembled by hand by the studio’s craftsmen and women, in both performance and appearance it expresses the very best of Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking,” the company says.
