The “Hakuji” (Pure white) dial of this timepiece has been created by hand using a traditional Japanese Arita porcelain technique. Prized for centuries for its unique colour, Arita porcelain is the latest expression of Japanese design to be showcased in the Presage Collection.
The Presage Craftsmanship Series celebrates the Japanese ‘Takumi’ – timepieces which are individually handcrafted by master artisans combining Seiko’s latest watchmaking techniques with centuries of traditional artistry.
Creating each individual porcelain watch dial involves great skill and patience through a multi-stage process with several phases of firing. This porcelain is used within high-strength, three-dimensional dials, made by master craftsman Hiroyuki Hashiguchi and his team in in Arita, Japan where porcelain has been made since 1830.
Seiko Presage: Timeless looks, precise mechanical timekeeping. Minimalistic watch designs with a distinctly Japanese aesthetic.
