Seiko Presage ‘Castle in The Sky’ Limited Edition
There are just 1,200 pieces of this watch design available globally – an exclusive collaboration between Seiko and Studio Ghibli, the masters of contemporary Japanese artistry through animated films.
The renowned 1986 Studio Ghibli animated ‘Castle in the Sky’ film plot parallels with the idea of treasured items being handed down through generations – this Presage model is designed to be treasured for the future.
The film’s story centres around the concept of inheritance; desires, dreams and thoughts as well as physical items are heirlooms to be passed on from generation to generation. The main character inherits and uses his father’s goggles to continue the pursuit of his father’s dream of getting to the castle.
The watch’s design cues nod to the physical and conceptual heirlooms in the film.
The crown and dial feature the tangible Levitation stone, whilst the exhibition case back shows an image representing the dream of the castle. Nostalgic roman numerals and a vintage-style blanket stitched leather strap demonstrate the idea of these treasured items being passed on through generations.
Each genuine enamel dial is truly unique, manufactured by firing at a high temperature – its individual beauty is within any ‘imperfections’ that the artisan methods create.
