Seiko Presage Urushi Green Dial Double-Retrograde SPB295J1 The deep green color of Kanazawa Forest is captured in the lacquer with a complex display. wholesale replica watches Since its global expansion in 2016, the Seiko Presage collection has never stopped growing. Within this collection of generally elegant and sophisticated watches, there are multiple collections to consider, from easy-to-use cocktail models to more complex "craft collections" that pay homage to traditional Japanese craftsmanship such as Arita porcelain, enamel and lacquer lacquer . Today, the Japanese manufacturer introduces the Seiko Presage Urushi Green Dial Limited Edition SPB295J1, expanding its collection with a new green lacquered dial and movement with a double retrograde display. This new model is part of the highest-end watch in the Presage collection, and it is neither the first green watch (already enamelled) nor the first Urushi model (a technique used many times). Still, this is the first time the two styles have been combined, plus the watch brings back a fairly specific display that Seiko hasn't used in a while.replica watches for men The dial of this new Presage SPB295J1 is made with lacquer (an extract of so-called Chinese sumac, or Japanese sumac) in the workshop of master craftsman Isshu Tamura in Kanazawa, in the center of Honshu, Japan, using The centuries-old lacquer art that Tamura learned from his father. The dial is hand-painted and polished several times. Green is a nod to summer Kanazawa, with golden hues echoing the warm sunlight penetrating the area's lush mossy forests. "Large lacquer is a time-consuming and challenging job, but it is the traditional and best way to create dark colors. Lacquer also has the advantage of getting harder with the years, which is why it was used in the Warring States period. The reason it was used to make samurai armor. The result of this complex process is a rich, glossy surface with a deep green color that will last for many years. Seiko combines this color with the classic white printed stick hour markers, logos and markers. The main hands of the hour and minute hands are also painted white for added contrast, and most elements combine this bright color with gold accents. The results are surprising, profound, and have an appealing "handmade" feel.Urwerk UR-110 TORPEDO Another important element of this new Seiko Presage Urushi Green Dial SPB295J1 is Seiko's double retrograde display, although rare these days, the brand favors pointer date and power reserve displays for most Arita models. Even the previous Urushi watch SPB085 used another display with the same function but without the retrograde indication. Here, in the new SPB295J1, our hour, minute and seconds hands are in the center, the power reserve is at 9:30, and importantly, the date at 6 o’clock and the day of the week at 2:30, both performing retrograde movements. Besides this brand new dial and this rare display, we have most of the classic elements of the Seiko Presage Craftsmanship collection. That means a signature stainless steel case with a diameter of 40.5mm, twisted lugs, brushed and polished surfaces, a tapered crown and a domed sapphire crystal on top. Water resistant to a comfortable 100 meters. The SPB295J1 is worn on a black buffalo leather strap, closed by a tri-fold clasp with push-button release. Below the transparent bottom cover is the 6R24 movement, which adopts the usual specifications of the 6Rxx series of mid-range movements. This means an automatic movement with a frequency of 4Hz, a power reserve of 45 hours, and in the present case, the multiple indications of the dial include two retrograde functions. The movement is lightly decorated with stripes on the brushed bridges and oscillating weight.Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS – SEIKO PRESAGE CRAFTSMANSHIP SERIES URUSHI GREEN DIAL LIMITED EDITION SPB295J1 Case: 40.5 mm diameter x approx. 13mm high - Stainless steel case, brushed and polished - Hyperbolic sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating - Transparent case back - 100m water resistance Dial: Lacquered polished dial - White transfer markers and indexes - White painted hands - Gold elements Movement: Calibre 6R24 - Manufacture - Automatic winding - 31 jewels - 45 hours power reserve - 28,800 vibrations/hour - hours, minutes, seconds, power reserve, retrograde date and day of the week Strap: Black buffalo leather strap - Tri-fold clasp with push-button release Reference: SPB295J1
