To produce the dials involves a multi-stage production process combining skill, patience and artistry. The dials are applied a glaze unique to Arita porcelain, which give them a deep, rich finish.

Seiko Presage Prestige Line Arita Porcelain Dial Limited Edition features a special dial that recreates the faint lapis lazuli colours created by a traditional dyeing technique called “ruri zome.” This technique is applied to representative Arita Porcelain works, such as the large tripod dishes from Kyushu decorated with heron designs.

The dial capturing the ruri zome technique’s soft, light tones and shades create a pleasing effect on the wrist.
