Seiko Presage gains reputation with its new enamel dial and spring drive

Surface treatment and movement represent a higher level of aesthetics, engineering and price increases in the Presage range.Grand Seiko replica Watches

Seiko's Presage series has been the main product of the list of value propositions since its launch in 2016. The collection has won fans by offering twisted sports watches with sporty details such as the sunburst dial, beveled hour markers, stylish seconds, sapphire case backs and even open-heart windows. Full disclosure, I was wearing my cocktail time SSA359J9 at the time of this writing.

Two new models, the white SNR037 and the black SNR039, are part of the Presage Prestige series, the upgraded sub-series in the Presage and the highest level in Seiko's current catalogue (price). In particular, the two new watches are on the rise and are almost twice the price of the Prestige brothers. What has the price soared? As it turns out, there are many things.

Seiko with spring drive
The most striking upgrade here is Seiko's iconic Spring Drive automatic movement 5R65.fake watches for sale, In addition to finishing, the 5R65 is almost identical to Grand Seiko's 9R15 movement, which has a 72-hour power reserve with an accuracy rating of ±1 second per day.

The spring drive has a smooth, lightweight second hand, a mechanical movement that uses a quartz timing kit to adjust the sliding wheel rotation at 8 times per second instead of ticking. The result is quiet, accurate, and poetic, with a crystal bottom cover.

The dial exudes Japanese craftsmanship
The latest version of the Presage collection has always been keen to add traditional Japanese decorations to its dial. Last month, my colleague Rhonda Riche introduced Seiko's collaboration with Shippo, Urushi lacquerware and porcelain. The attention to tradition has made Seiko a step forward in retrospecting the long-standing technology.
 
The story here follows a similar arc. The 珐琅 dial on SNR037 and SNR039 was created by master Mitsuru Yokosawa, who has been working with 珐琅 for nearly fifty years. The dial design was inspired by industrial designer Riki Watanabe, who worked with Seiko for a long time before his death in 2013.BELL & ROSS BR-X replica Watches

The Presage team worked closely with Watanabe's colleague Yokosawa to capture the spirit of the late designers in these watches. A key example is the use of Didoni, an elegant and playful font that is a favorite of Watanabe. Fans of watch history will notice that this dial design is reminiscent of Seiko (and Japan)'s first watch, and Hattori Seikosha Laurel made its debut in 1913.

Tiny touches, such as Didoni numbers, or shovel and leaf hands, or subtle sloping grooves around the date window and power reserve indicator help create a watch that is larger than the sum of its parts. Seiko has actually created a modern classic by creating a watch with modern performance and timeless design.

The new 珐琅 dial Spring Drive watch has a limited edition feel, but is scheduled to begin production in October this year. They are available in a 40 mm wide, 13.1 mm thick stainless steel case with a super-hard coating and a water resistance of 10 bar / 100 m.
 
What will come signs
Prespect, when defined, refers to the omen of the future. The Presage Prestige series recently released the Spring Drive calibre, with improved aesthetics and rising prices, seems to mark the further development of the Grand Seiko field.HUBLOT BIG BANG SANG BLEU replica watches
