Inspired by a Japanese painting technique called Kira-zuri (“sparkling painting”), the lustrous dial takes a life of its own. This technique is commonly found in ukiyo-e paintings to create texture to the background of Kabuki actors. The dial on the platinum model has an additional plating process to create its texture and sparkle, while the blue dial of the stainless steel model shares influences from the clear blue skies over the Sea of Japan.
