Seiko - Presage Enamel Collection

Seiko Presage Enamel Collection

Seiko launches a new Presage collection using enamel dials and a range of Seiko’s mechanical movements.

These four new creations join the fast-growing all-mechanical Presage collection which was launched worldwide in 2016. Every Presage watch features one of Seiko’s tried and trusted mechanical calibers and is made in their own facilities in Japan.

The four models are using three different calibers. All draw their design inspiration from two landmark Seiko creations. First, the 1913 Laurel which was Seiko’s and Japan’s first ever wrist watch and which had an enamel dial. Second, the roman numeral hour markers are the direct descendants of the markers on the dial of Seiko’s 1895 pocket watch, the “Time Keeper”.

The Multi-Hand Automatic SPB045 and the Automatic Chronograph SRQ023.

The enamel dials are made by the master craftsman Mitsuru Yokozawa and his team. The thickness of the enamel is adjusted to perfection to the exact depth required on each part of the dial. The sapphire crystals are dual-curved so that even the ridge of the dial can be seen without distortion from any angle. The hour markers are painted no fewer than ten times to lift them in relief from the dial. The tips of the hands are curved by skilled craftsmen to follow the contours of the curved sapphire crystals so that the case depth is minimized. The exhibition case backs are sapphire crystals for greater durability. In every way, the high quality materials and workmanship of Presage are expressed more clearly than ever in these four new timepieces.

The two Automatic models, SPB047, 049.

This enamel collection will be a permanent feature of the Presage line and will be available worldwide from September 2017.
