The Presage Sharp Edged Series adapts the traditional Japanese art of Kabuki theater to the modern age.
Ever since its introduction in 2020, the creative combination of Japanese culture and modern design has been a central feature of the Seiko Presage Sharp Edged Series. Two new creations join this series and pay homage to the enduring longevity of Kabuki. These watches have been designed in collaboration with Ebizo Ichikawa, one of Japan's most prominent and influential Kabuki actors.
The dials incorporate the Japanese hemp leaf pattern known as Asanoha, which has been used in the fabrics of Kabuki costumes for centuries. Partly thanks to the popularity and influence of Kabuki actors, the Asanoha pattern has long been highly favored in Japanese fashion and design.
