Inspired by the inky colours of the night sky, the blue dial is paired with a gold powder-coated crescent counterweight on the seconds hand, meant to evoke the moon. At the pinnacle of sport, on land, at sea and in the sky. But on to the watches themselves. Mitsuru supervises the creation of each of the dials because his expertise and experience are crucial in the process. It was exciting news because the models belong somewhere above affordable entry-level brands but below the Grand Seiko Collection. The dial of the Presage Blue Enamel Limited Edition is made in the same fashion as grand feu enamel dials on high-end Swiss watches.
Another fantastic watch creation from Seiko. Today Seiko has announced a new addition to the Presage collection, a set of four simple watches each bearing a hand-made enamel dial with elegant Roman numerals. Because the surface of a watch dial is so small and as it is viewed at such close distances, the depth and evenness of the enamel has to be exact. It is not identical to the international market limited edition as described earlier. Valuable details to know about the timepiece includes: Mitsuru Yokozawa is the Man behind the Blue Enamel Dials He is a master enamel craftsman who started working on these dials in 1971. But then again we re talking about a japanese company and they are really worthy of all respect. One concern I had with the aforementioned Presage enamel chronographs was their thickness.Next
Uncoached began in 2007 with one site and a goal of creating content that was clear, concise, worth reading, entertaining, and useful. We design and develop our own movements using leading-edge technology. This watch is exactly that, supporting the adventurer every step of the way. Even watchmakers and I even think the companies barely know them. It demands to be picked up, examined up close and experienced to the full. Worth noting is that the tips of the hands also appear to be curved something that is done by a professional.
At Seiko, we believe that design can transform the world. The creation of every Presage dial is supervised by Yokosawa and every single one is inspected by his experienced eye. Both watches are the same size and probably use the same case. The classic design of large white Roman numerals exudes class and power. Furthermore, it also sports an open case back that gives owners a clear view of the 6R15 Caliber from the manufacturers.Next
The watch is suitable for everyday wear as it is also water resistance of up to 100m. In the land of the rising sun, the art of enamelling was introduced in the 17 th century and was given the name Shippo, in reference to the Seven Treasures mentioned in the Buddhist texts. The respective models are already available in international markets and Japan. There used to be a Seiko store in Genève. It was when Seiko the Japan watch manufacturer launched its Presage collection all over the globe. We meet with them often, whether in the Netherlands, Frankfurt or Basel.Next
Head over to the Hodinkee Shop if you want to reserve yours! Where on Earth is the moon blue? The only bad news is that the Presage Blue Enamel Limited Edition will be produced in relatively limited quantities. Once again, the white lacquered Roman numerals are partially eclipsed to accommodate the functions. Please confirm the availability of models to each store. Both are gone now, but the notion that the brand is unknown there is silly. Similarly, a golden crescent is printed on the inside of the display back. Please see the lineup on each website.Next
In the past, Japanese nobility would have tsukimi ceremonies where they would gather under the full moon for merrymaking. The time-piece beats at about 21,600 vibrations every hour, provides a power reserve of 50 hours which is slightly above average. There also used to be a authorized dealer in Bern. This watch once again probably looks a little familiar, this time recalling the other limited edition 60th anniversary Presage from 2016. Let's take a closer look at these new watches and what they bring to the table. The watch, in a class of its own, is the perfect partner for a global traveller, who appreciates the elegant and refined design.Next
Inside, and viewed through the case back, the 23-jeweled 6R15 automatic with date function sees service. Well maybe dauphine hands and stick indices, along with the beautiful enamel dial? This product also boasts of stop-seconds that pave the way for more precise time-setting. The only thing I think can be improved upon is the movement. It is such an important occasion that some castles, such as Matsumoto Castle, would be constructed with special moon-viewing rooms. The sapphire crystal is dual-curved so that the dial can be seen without distortion from any angle. They are the primary source of information in every market.Next
All these elements combine to create a watch that has classical authority in its design but also a humanity and warmth that draws in the eye. Only by controlling every stage of the process and even adjusting the composition of the enamel in line with atmospheric conditions can a truly perfect dial be created. Plus, you can see how the dial surface forms around the date window. The 8R45 is not a svelte movement and, therefore, I had some concerns about the new Seiko Presage Blue Enamel Limited Edition. Officially released from embargo on December 7 th, the Seiko Presage Blue Enamel Limited Edition was a watch I first came across in August.
