Alas, only those in Japan can enjoy the product we are going to talk about here. This one is the Galante Spring Drive Watch that comes from the Seiko sub brand. And might we say, the name Galante is responsible for ruffling up the feathers for the wealthy youth seeking distinct and chic designs. And do not think that it is a poor cousin of Seiko’s for it creates well constructed and designed watches, each of which is assembled in hand.
And good news is that Galante just turned five and so its extremely talented design team has come up with a special 5th Anniversary Special Edition model. They have ensured that the timepiece has a jewelry like quality owing to the steel bracelet holding on to your wrist. The rotating bezel is a true delight thanks to the floral engraving and if you look closely at the dial, you can spot roses carved into it.
The frame of this beauty is 44.5mm and the Seiko 5R66 Spring Drive movement keeps it ticking. You have the complete package with the time, power reserve indicator, date and GMT hand. The price range will start at $5,000. Check with your nearest Japanese dealer or write to your dear one living in Japan for a Christmas gift you will treasure all your life.
