Seiko Presage Automatic -  Shippo Enamel Limited Edition ***PRE-ORDER*** SPB073J1

The Shippo enamel

Shippo is a particular type of enamel that was developed in Japan in the 17th century. Shippo is distinguished from porcelain enamel by its transparency and in the way it is polished after firing – a process that is particularly challenging on a watch dial that is no more than 1mm thick.


The dial on this new Presage creation is a deep blue that mirrors the color of the ocean. As our home is a group of islands, the sea has come to have a special meaning for the people of Japan. Over the millennia, the sea has brought the world’s cultures, arts and technologies to Japan, where they have evolved under the influence of Japanese sensibilities and become unique expressions of the nation’s identity. Enamel is a perfect example; when brought to Japan from overseas, it was adapted and refined into a unique art form. The long-lasting blue of the Shippo enamel expresses the everlasting blue of the ocean, while the dial pattern echoes the continuous motion of the waves that break on the shores of our islands.


Other features

There are two limited editions. One has power reserve and date indicators, while the other offers a more simple dial. Both feature the markers and minute track used on the 1895 Time Keeper that is an essential part of Seiko’s history. Their Shippo enamel dials are protected by dual curved sapphire crystals and stainless steel cases. The crocodile leather strap has a three-fold clasp.
