As the city comes back to life this season, take advantage of these new things to do and shop.
Grand Seiko’s Spring watch is inspired by lush Japanese cherry blossoms.
Watches of Switzerland and Grand Seiko team up to present The Nature of Time Experience, an interactive gallery that showcases the brands’ meticulously designed timepieces. Inspired by the oscillating seasons of Japan, Grand Seiko’s The Nature of Time collection pays homage to the passage of time through craftsmanship. The Spring watch’s dial echoes the cherry blossoms of the sakura season with its gentle pink color; the verdant dial for the Summer watch reflects vitality; the Autumn model embodies a moonlit fall night with vivid blue; and the purity of winter snow is represented with a dial of silvery white for the Winter timepiece. The immersive exhibition features the world’s largest collection of Grand Seiko watches and provides insight on the brand’s masterful artistry. 119 Spring St., grandseikonatureoftime.com
