Presage Green Enamel - Ltd Ed 2000pcs - Ref. SPB111J1

In the early 1910s, the Japanese watch manufacturer debuted its first mechanical watch. In continuation of its development, Seiko has launched its automatic caliber in the 1950s, along with its marvel, which is the creation of its shock-absorbing system for the movement, known as the "Diashock" system.

Seiko has gone through decades of refinements and developing its mechanical watchmaking skills. This had led to the creation of Seiko's all-mechanical collection, the Presage. The Presage line consists of Seiko's leading mechanical watch collection, the caliber 4R, 6R, and 8R, and today we introduced to you the latest model; the Presage Green Enamel Automatic Limited Edition Ref. SBP111j1.
 


Seiko Presage Green Enamel - Ltd Ed 2000pcs - Ref. SPB111J1

In the Presage line consist of Seiko’s leading mechanical watch collection at nearly every price point imaginable, like the caliber 4R, 6R and 8R, and today we introduced to you a new model in our collection, the Presage Enamel Roman Automatic Ref. SPB047J1 or known domestically as the SARX049. This is a classic dress watch entirely made in-house by Seiko, and features an impeccable fire-treated enamel dial crafted in the land of the rising sun.

The prevalence of the art and practices of enameling is customary in the heart of Switzerland since the 17th century. Geneva’s timepieces have been highly sought after with different Grand Feu (where enameling is called there) style paintings and portraits on their dials. However, a majority of these unique enamel timepieces are tagged with a high price for consumers, but not anymore.
 


Seiko Automatic Movement, 6R35

The watch case measures modestly at 40.5mm with a slim profile of 12mm. With a lugs to lugs length of only 47.8mm, making it sit well most of our wrist. It includes a subtly domed sapphire crystal that sits flushed to its polished case, with AR coating on the inner side.

The dial of the SPB111j1 is where the highlight is. Enamel, a "cloisonné" material that originated from the western side of the world, acquired; a coating applied to metals by firing enamel glaze with glass coonhounds. This is a painstaking process also belongs to and as traditional Japanese craftsmanship since the 18th century, and few have preserved the skills until today. Why enamel? The answer lies in the process of producing a unique longevity aesthetics with its unique sheen and warm feel, making it impermeable to almost anything for many years to come. Even like enamel dials found on watches, it will continue to look as new as though it just came out fresh from the manufacturer — this artistry craftsmanship traditionally known in Japan. Therefore the SPB111j1 is finished in real deep and lustrous green color that was never done before, appearing foresty, specifically the cedar leaves. Further, it is pleasing to the eyes with a consistent flow of calmness through its distinctive texture.
 


Forest green enamel dial based on Japanese cedar

It was all done individually by the hands of master craftsman Misturu Yokosawa from Fuji Porcelain Enamel Co. Further, as dials on this Presage are significantly smaller at around 3cm in diameter, they impose challenging limitations. However, Mr. Yokosawa, with his more than 40 years of experience, is capable of producing this complexity of applying enamel at this level to the dials that bring out the glossiness and deep finishing delicately. With that said, the production volume kept to a limited amount of 2000 pieces.

The bi-Arabic and baton hour markers are applied on top, with the date display and the Seiko logo on top, to be congruent. The watch is then paired with the genuine alligator strap, elevating it on the elegant side of things, but one can swap out with another for a more casual look.

Well, now onto the movement here. Since the 6R15 produced in 2005, the Seiko Presage range adopted this movement since day one, and have relied on it until 14 years later, where Seiko decided that they should refresh the collection with the latest engine- the 6R35.

Therefore, the Seiko Presage Green Enamel Limited Edition Ref. SPB111J1 is the pioneer to have a new movement; powered by Seiko's latest automatic caliber, 6R35, which is an upgrade from the workhorse 6R15. It still operates at 21,600 BPH (3 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. Its main updates are the increase of jewels to 24 and a power reserve of 70 hours from 50 hours on previous versions. The movement can be seen through the open display case back.

With the Presage Green Enamel, Seiko has once again showcased their ability to produce an elegant timepiece packed with traditional Japanese artistry techniques. This dynamic combination also showcases the design discipline behind the enamel collection, both long-admired and enduring creations. With clean lines and high-level polishing with what is considered a unique dial available only to Seiko, this watch has a certain charisma that is not seen in many other watches, holding artistry and craftmanship value that endure across the generations.
