The history of Seiko began in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori opened a shop in Ginza to repair and sell timepieces. In 1913, his company produced Japan's first wristwatch, the Laurel, and has advanced the art of watchmaking in the ensuing years through both technology and craft.
Today, four special timepieces join the Presage Craftsmanship Series and commemorate the 110th anniversary of Seiko watchmaking. Each showcases a traditional Japanese handcraft combined with Seiko's mechanical watchmaking skills, creating a unique balance of beauty and precision.
The Presage Craftsmanship Series shines a light on traditional Japanese crafts through vivid watch dials. With each of the four crafts, a different master and his team demonstrate the painstaking skill required to practice their technique on the miniature canvas that is a Seiko Presage dial. For this special anniversary series, Seiko is presenting a limited-edition Presage watch in each of the following four materials: enamel, Urushi lacquer, Arita porcelain, and Shippo enamel.
The limited-edition watches use a new case shape with refined angles and an elegant sense of proportion. The structure of this case is designed to emphasize the craft dials within while offering a slimmer look on the wrist. Each dial features a new design with alternating roman numerals and indexes, lending a new look to the familiar series of dress watches. And thanks to dual-curved sapphire crystals, the dials appear even closer and more legible, bringing a truly striking appearance to the craftsmanship on display.
