japanese beauty from ginza

Ginza continues to fascinate the world.

Inspired by this city where tradition and the latest trends meet, the timepieces of this new collection mark the passing of time, celebrating the timelessness of SEIKO beauty.

Under the concept “Japanese Beauty from GINZA,” 
colors rich in emotion and based on traditional Japanese aesthetics 
are featured over the entirety of each watch.

Deep red “Kurenai” is the color of confidence that draws on feminine charm, 
embracing the heart’s passion.

“Gofun,” the color of powdered seashell used in elegant Japanese cosmetics, 
features a beautiful white look.

“Ruri-iro,” the color of the deep blue evening sky, 
beautifully embellishes the wrist.

Graceful grey “Aoshiro-tsurubami” is a chic and polished blend of classic and modern, 
evoking the image of cobblestones of Ginza’s back streets.

“Sakura-iro,” representing a delicate pink color of spring, 
is a lasting homage to ephemeral beauty.

The color of the dial is inspired by the pale light “Tsukishiro” 
that heralds the rising of the moon and resembles the city lights of Ginza.
Its light illuminates shadows with various expressions, 
releasing the heart into refined serenity, and enriching it.

  • The bezel has 55 diamonds and the dial has eight diamonds.
  • The unique and distinguished look of the strap is made possible by a special, two-stage dyeing method known as “Tani-zome.” The leather is first dyed white, and then the grooves in the pattern are dyed light blue.

The brilliant expressions of the multilayered dial of each timepiece change based on reflected light. They reveal hues from the traditional Japanese concept of color, portraying the transient and subtle beauty of nature.

Each model displays a unique patterning thanks to its shiny and deeply bright color overlaid on a white mother of pearl base. A magnificent flower motif occupies the center of the dial while the eight diamonds on the index add an elegant sparkle. Along with the leather strap colorfully finished even on the reverse side, each timepiece gorgeously decorates the wrist.

The multifaceted case catches the light and sparkles, making the wrist shine beautifully.
The soft texture of the strap fits comfortably on the skin and has different colors on the front and back sides, depending on the model.

The new Lukia series is powered by Seiko’s latest automatic caliber, 6R35, which delivers a power reserve of 70 hours. It can be seen through the sapphire case back, marking time at 21,600 beats per hour.

Seiko Lukia Review

Seiko Lukia. The glamour of Ginza. The refinement of Japan.

Soon after Japan opened its doors to the world in the second half of the 19th century, the Ginza
district in central Tokyo became its showcase. When Japan’s first railway opened in 1872, its
Tokyo terminus was at the edge of Ginza which rapidly became the center for shops selling
all that was new and fashionable. It was soon also the hub of the media business and home
to the many cafés and bars that were the new meeting places for artists and writers. Today,
Ginza remains synonymous with all that is glamorous and exciting about Tokyo and is, in many
respects, Japan’s window on the world. Ginza is also home to Seiko. Seiko was established
in Ginza in 1881 and the Seiko clock that sits atop the Wako store, where Seiko was long
headquartered, is a much-loved Ginza landmark.

Lukia. Capturing the spirit of Ginza.

The new Seiko Lukia collection celebrates the glamour, vivacity and refinement of today’s Ginza.
Since 1995, Lukia has been adorning the wrists of discerning women in Japan and it is now, for
the first time, available outside of Asia. The collection comprises six creations, each of which has
a dial featuring a traditional Japanese color overlaid on a mother-of-pearl base with a flower
motif and eight diamond hour markers. Each dial is colored from both sides, which allows the
full richness of the color to blend harmoniously with the texture of the mother-of-pearl dial.
The case offers a soft, delicate feeling on the wrist thanks to its perfectly rounded edges.

Five of the six new creations will be available from July 2020, with a limited edition to follow
in September. All will be available in selected Seiko Boutiques.

Powered by life. Crafted to be enjoyed.

The new Lukia series is powered by Seiko’s latest automatic caliber, 6R35, which delivers a power
reserve of 70 hours. It can be seen through the sapphire case back, marking time at 21,600 beats
per hour. Each watch is water resistant to 10 bar and has a sapphire crystal that is resistant to
scratches. Lukia is built to be enjoyed every day, in every situation.

Gofun. Made from powdered seashell, it is now used Kabuki cosmetics.
One of Japan’s most famous Kabuki theaters is located in Ginza.

To celebrate the arrival of Lukia on the international stage, a special watch is offered in a
limited edition of just 250. Its dial is the color, Tsukishiro, of the blue-white evening sky that
frames the Ginza skyline as the moon is about to appear. It has 55 diamonds on the bezel and
eight diamonds on the dial. The unique and distinguished look of the strap is made possible
by a special, two-stage dyeing method. After the leather is first dyed white, the grooves in the
pattern are then dyed light blue.
