Seiko PRESAGE BLUE ENAMEL Limited Edition
This new Presage creation is inspired by the sky at night and Japan’s fascination with the moon. It combines Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking and Japanese craftsmanship in the form of enamel, expressed for the first time in a rich blue dial.
The golden crescent moon on the reverse end of the second hand moves gracefully across the blue dial, just as the moon moves across the night sky in the high mountains of Japan.
From time immemorial, Japan has been fascinated by the moon and, during the Heian period (794-1185), the nation’s reverence for the moon’s beauty found expression in the creation of a ceremony, timed to coincide with the period of the year when the moon shines brightest. The nobility of Japan would gather in the open air when the moon was at its height and recite poetry that extolled the beauty of the full moon, especially when reflected in the water of lakes, rivers and the sea. These Tsukimi ceremonies would often be accompanied by orchestral music, the eating of traditional Autumn foods and the drinking of sake, Japan’s rice wine. It is a tradition that has lasted until today and is widely observed throughout Japan.
