Seiko Presage Prestige Line Arita Porcelain Dial Limited Edition

Presage captures
the beauty of the moon reflected in water
with an Arita porcelain dial

During the Heian age, from the late eighth to the early twelfth century, Japan enjoyed a long period of prosperity during which a large part of the nation’s cultural identity was forged through prose, poetry and painting.

A favorite pastime among the leisured classes was Suigetsu, the enjoyment of the moon’s reflection on the lakes and ponds in their gardens, a sight that appealed because of its ephemerality and unattainability and that has inspired Japanese art ever since. Suigetsu is a Japanese word whose Kanji characters signify water and the moon. This fascination with the moon continues in Japan to this day and is brought to life in this new Presage creation with the highest levels of traditional Japanese hand craftsmanship and mechanical watchmaking reflected in every detail.

Arita porcelain

Arita, a small town on Kyushu, the third largest island in the southwest of Japan, came to prominence in the early 17th century when clay suitable for porcelain manufacture was discovered. 
Today, Arita porcelain is still highly prized worldwide, thanks to its long tradition of craftsmanship, to the rich variety of its products and to the uniquely Japanese sensibility that they embody.

A multi-stage
production process

The production of each watch dial is a multi-stage process that requires several phases of firing and involves great skill and patience. The dials are produced by master craftsman Hiroyuki Hashiguchi and his colleagues at an experienced manufacturer in Arita that has been making porcelain since 1830. To give the dials the strength required for a watch, the craftsmen use a type of Arita porcelain specially formulated to be harder and more durable than traditional porcelain.
A very precise casting mold is used to achieve the difficult task of giving each dial the precise dimensions required to fit perfectly into a wristwatch.

The new Presage porcelain dials are made by an experienced manufacturer in Arita that has been making porcelain since 1830. Hiroyuki Hashiguchi is the master craftsman and he and his colleagues have been developing the dials with the Presage team over the past few years.

The “Hakuji” dial

While in traditional Arita porcelain a special glaze is applied to create its distinctive subtle blue sheen, a clear, transparent glaze is used for the dial of this new watch to allow the natural whiteness of the porcelain material to shine through. This pure white porcelain, called Hakuji, echoes the delicate reflection of the moon on water, and creates a sharp contrast with the blue of the hands, roman numerals and sub-dials. The combination of the blue color with the white Arita porcelain lends the watch a uniquely Japanese aesthetic that captures the transient yet memorable beauty of the time-honored tradition of Suigetsu.


The blue hands, hour markers and sub-dials stand out clearly from the pure white dial.
The gray scale along the dial is in harmony with the dial, and the crescent moon motifs of the power reserve indicator and the seconds hand enhance the unique beauty of this watch.

A strap reminiscent of quiet water

The replica watch is presented on a crocodile strap with a blue tone that echoes the color of lakes and ponds illuminated by moonlight.


The letters “Limited Edition” and the serial number 0001/2000-2000/2000 are inscribed on the case back as proof of this limited quantity edition.

In an actual product, the case back direction might be different from the photograph.

Seiko Presage Line Watch for men

The artistry of traditional Japanese craftsmanship has been a central feature of the Seiko Presage collection since its introduction to the world in 2016. The collection’s wide variety of creations have showcased handcrafts such as Shippo enamel and, most recently, Arita porcelain, which, in combination with Seiko’s watchmaking skills, create a unique balance of beauty and technology. Today, Seiko Presage introduces two new watches that reveal a completely different and more contemporary form of Japanese artistry. These timepieces are inspired by the widely acclaimed feature-length film “Porco Rosso,” created by the famous Japanese animation studio, Studio Ghibli.

One of Studio Ghibli’s creations is “Porco Rosso,” released in 1992. The film features an early 20th-century pilot who transforms himself into a seaplane-flying pig, Porco, and makes his living chasing sky bandits over Italy and the beautiful Adriatic Sea. With its vivid animation, the film brings to life the romance of the early days of aviation. Replica Seiko watch

Seiko Presage

Replica Seiko Presage Fine Mechanical Watches from Japan, More than 100 years ago, Seiko produced the first wristwatch made in Japan. The tradition of Seikos’s craftsmanship was born.

Presage combines a Japanese aesthetic sense with traditional craftsmanship and Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking skills in an original collection that offers Japanese . Replica Seiko Presage, which has inherited Seiko’s watchmaking tradition, will release a limited-edition model that pays homage to the design of the Crown Chronograph. In acknowledgment of the year of the Crown Chronograph’s release, 1964, the number of watches will be limited to 1964 units.

Replica Seiko is one of the few fully integrated watch manufactures. We design and develop our own movements using leading-edge technology. The Presage, like the original Cocktail Time, is 40mm, and wears exactly as a 40mm dress watch should. A large push-pull crown signed with the Seiko “S” adds to the vintage vibe, as does the high-domed Hardlex crystal. I would personally prefer sapphire for durability’s sake, but this watch is not a beater by any stretch of the imagination.
