Seiko Presage The Urushi Byakudan-nuri with Stunning Hand-Lacquered Dial
The main point of interest with the new ref. SPB085 is its dial. For the rest, this watch will be familiar to you as it was already available (with a similar display) with a white enamel dial and a blue Shippo enamel dial. No surprises in terms of mechanics or case either, all of that will be familiar to most watch enthusiasts. What is new, however, is the addition of an Urushi dial – and not just a single-tone Urushi lacquered one, but a new three-tone version, created with three different techniques named Urushi, Byakudan-nuri, and Maki-e.
The dial of the Seiko Presage Urushi Byakudan-nuri depicts the rich tones of the sky and moon just before dawn: a pitch-black sky, red accents where the sun touches and golden hues for the Moon. Achieving these three colours requires three different methods, done in the studio of Urushi master Isshu Tamura.
