Seiko 2021 PROSPEX 140th Anniversary x "GINZA KOMPARU"
In celebration of Seiko's 140th anniversary and its long association with Ginza,
two limited editions are today introduced into the Prospex and Presage collections
which capture both the classic and modern faces of Ginza.
The seconds hand pays homage to the district's history with Komparu, a traditional Japanese color named after Komparu Street, where Ginza’s nightlife was once centered. This blue color with a soft green tone was first used in the middle Meiji era (1868 - 1912) , instantly found favor among the many geishas who lived there and then gradually became a popular color among the public.
Both creations capture the classic and modern faces of Ginza with dial patterns inspired by the district's cobblestone streets and the dial patterns are in a blue-gray color that evokes the contemporary feel of modern buildings and constructions which outline the area.
