Description

The Ultimate in Simplicity: an elegant expression of Japanese aesthetics.

Credor is a luxury dress watch series created in 1974 that employs delicate techniques based on Japanese precision and esthetics. The name is based on the French “crête d’or” which means “crest of gold.” Befitting the name, each part, from the movement to the finest component, is made from select materials and produced by master watchmakers, ensuring the enduring beauty and quality of every watch.

The Eichi II is made with top-class horological handcrafting and cutting-edge technology. The Eichi II is a luxury watch produced with the incomparable esthetics and techniques of the master Japanese watchmakers for which the Credor brand is known.

The original Eichi (which means “wisdom”) won accolades for its exquisite hand-finishing, a patented torque return system, and pure white porcelain dial. The Eichi II employs these features and has been further refined. Its redesign fully deserves the description: “the ultimate in simplicity.”

The Eichi II is made by Seiko Epson’s premier watchmakers at its Micro Artist Studio, located in Shiojiri, Nagano Prefecture. The case back was hand-finished by master craftsmen and craftswomen and features a timeless luster and unmatched sophistication. The finishing on the case back was influenced by Philippe Dufour who famously consulted with the Micro Artist Studio on finishing techniques.

The movement uses a two-piece bridge structure with the power reserve indicator in a well-balanced position, finished simply and dynamically. The contours of the bridge and the beveling around the rubies and holes look striking from any angle, as they are all expertly handcrafted and polished to a mirror-like finish with a circular motion. The circular mirrored finish parts and blue temper screws stand in contrast to the hairline finish of the bridge and heighten the sense of engineering perfection.

The hour indices are hand-painted on a porcelain dial inspired by the snowy landscapes of winter in the mountainous region of Shinshu. The 12-hour indices and Credor logo were meticulously hand-painted, one by one. Such a high level of concentration and skill is needed that only one watch dial can be produced per day. The paint used on the hour indices is a specially blended deep blue that matches the blue temper hands perfectly.
