The Presage range combines a Japanese aesthetic sense with traditional craftsmanship and Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking skills in an original collection that offers Japanese beauty, quality and long-lasting performance.
The Japanese garden is a well-known and much-admired aspect of Japanese culture and provides the inspiration for this new Presage collection. The dial has the depth and rich texture of a Karesansui or Zen garden in which gravel is raked into serene, flowing patterns like waves or rippling water. The deeply pressed pattern on the dial creates dramatic shadows as do the furrows of gravel in the Karesansui garden.
This is one of two models to feature an open heart. A Zen garden is best admired from a fixed viewpoint outside the garden. The unique shape on the left side of the dial is inspired by the interaction of circles and straight lines that is characteristic of the circular window looking out onto a Japanese garden. You can feel the flow of time through the window on the dial.
This model has a 41.5mm stainless steel case & bracelet, black 3D patterned dial with open heart & silver colour Roman numerals, 24-hour sub-dial, date window, curved sapphire crystal, exhibition case-back, automatic movement with 41-hour power reserve, is made in Japan and has splash resistance.
