Since 2016, the Presage collection has been renowned for showcasing many forms of Japanese aesthetics and craftsmanship in its creations. Today, the collection introduces two new watches that, for the first time in its history, carry Spring Drive movements. Spring Drive dramatizes a uniquely Japanese aesthetic and sensibility through the quiet and smooth glide motion of the seconds hand and its innovative mechanism speaks of Seiko’s mastery of high technology and craftsmanship.
Spring Drive Caliber 5R65 (SNR037,SNR039). Driving System: Automatic. Power reserve: 72 hours. Accuracy: ±1 second per day (±15 seconds per month). Magnetic resistance: 4,800 A/m
Hours, minutes, seconds and date. Power reserve indicator at the eight o’clock
Three-fold clasp with push button release
10 bars (100 m / 330 ft)
The dial is made of enamel and has a simple yet modern design reflecting the philosophy of
a pioneer of modern Japanese design, Riki Watanabe, with whom Seiko had collaborated in
several projects in the past. Watanabe passed away in 2013 and so, in creating these watches,
Seiko worked with a long-time colleague and friend of Watanabe’s to whom he had entrusted
the design direction of his work. The highest level of Japanese aesthetic and craftsmanship is
reflected in the movement, materials and design, and with it, a brand new form of Japanese
artistry is born in Presage.
