Grand Seiko talks about the Kira-Zuri dial in the following excerpt :
"Inspired by a Japanese painting technique called Kira-zuri, true to its translation “sparkling painting”, the lustrous dial takes a life of its own. Commonly found in ukiyo-e paintings to create texture to the background of Kabuki actors, the inspired technique adds depth and excitement to the timepiece in movement and light. "
The watch is then topped with a 3 cut glass that alters the way light enters the dial, further enhancing the beauty of the dial as light darts across it at different angles.
