Prized for centuries for its unique blue-tinged white colour, fine Arita porcelain is the latest expression of Japanese artistry to be showcased in the Presage Collection.
This porcelain is used within high-strength, three-dimensional dials, individually created by master artisans in a multi-stage process combining Seiko’s latest watchmaking techniques with centuries of craftsmanship. The Arita porcelain dial of this elegant timepiece, with power reserve indicator and calendar display sub dial, also celebrates Seiko’s rich heritage with the signature red twelve o’clock numeral. The ‘red twelve’ originally featured in the company’s 1913 ‘Laurel’, design – Japan’s very first wristwatch.
A dual-curved sapphire crystal offers anti-reflective coating on the inner surface, while the screw down see-through exhibition caseback provides a view of the 29-jewel automatic movement with manual winding capability, a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and a power reserve of approximately 45 hours.
