Inspired By Tokyo’s Ginza Cocktail, The Seiko Presage Series Launches A New Limited Edition

At the 2017 Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show, the SEIKO Presage pilot series of all-mechanical watches has launched 8 new models inspired by bar style. The fascinating color of each watch’s dial is derived from a well-known cocktail cocktail, a design that became very popular once it was launched, and has now become a fixed classic lineup of the SEIKO Persage collection. Today, two new dial designs have been added to give back to the expectations of all SEIKO fans. The two new dial designs are inspired by Mr. Hisashi kishi’s cocktail creations. Kishihisa is the owner and chief bartender of the STAR BAR in Ginza, Tokyo. He is a legend who has won the International Bar Association World Championships.
   Exquisite and perfect dial processing is the key to this series of design. Each dial’s color tone has been individually polished at least seven times. It is this fine and long process that creates the extremely rich layering and mellow color of the dial texture, which makes these models perfectly show the glamorous flavor of those shaking cocktails in the goblet of the STAR BAR on the street of Ginza. .

The ‘Starlight’ cocktail is inspired by the brightness and mysterious beauty of the night sky.
   The appearance of this watch will evoke your longing for the brightness and mysterious beauty of the night sky. The entire dial is a dark blue tone. It seems to emit bright starlight from the center of the dial and extends outward indefinitely. Just like the foam in the ‘Starlight’ cocktail specially prepared by Mr. Kishihisa, the starlight is reflected in the glass. Mr. Kishihisa said, ‘The secret to making the vast starlight comes from foam. I used my homemade’ ‘Infinity Shake ‘to quickly shake it to make this cocktail. With countless tiny bubbles in the glass, I create a starry night sky. Bright feeling. ‘

The ‘Sakura Snow’ cocktail shows the beauty of cherry blossoms blooming in the spring breeze.
   As we all know, the Japanese love cherry blossoms very much, and people pay close attention to and appreciate each stage of cherry blossoms. When the blooming cherry blossoms finally fell in the wind, what other scenery in the world can be more beautiful than it? Just like this cocktail specially prepared by Mr. Kishihisa, the design of this watch uses a delicate light pink dial to freeze the most evocative moment when the cherry blossoms will fall. As he said, ‘I like the taste of this cocktail, this strong taste of gin and clear rum. The malted rice floating on the surface of the liquor is like a cherry blossom blooming in the breeze of spring. general.’
   The designs of these two new dials are each equipped with two different movements. Large three-pin mechanical watch with 4R57 calendar display movement, simple and slender hands, and equipped with a central power reserve display. The curved scale of the power reserve display is just like the beautiful curved line of the cocktail glass handle seat; while the other is equipped with a 4R35 simple three-pin mechanical movement. Both movements are self-winding, and can also be wound manually by rotating the three-dimensionally engraved crown. When you turn the hands, you can clearly feel the power, strength and feel of the mechanical movement. All four watches are equipped with a see-through spiral case back.
