1 Review
In the early 1910s, the Japanese watch manufacturer debuted its first mechanical watch. In continuation of its development, Seiko has launched its automatic caliber in the 1950s, along with its marvel, which is the creation of its shock-absorbing system for the movement; known as the "Diashock" system.

Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain Blue Pwr Rsv - Ltd Ed 2000pcs Ref. SARW061 / SPB267
Seiko has gone through decades of refinements and developing its mechanical watchmaking skills. This had led to the creation of Seiko's all-mechanical collection; the Presage. The Presage line started in 2016 and consisted of Seiko's leading mechanical watch collection, the caliber 4R, 6R, and 8R. At first, they offered with unique dials like fired enamel or traditional lacquer dials. For an instant, the 2018 Shippo Enamel duos (SPB073J1 and 75J1)

Today, we introduced to you the latest model; the limited edition Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain Blue Pwr Rsv Limited Edition Ref. SARW061. Seiko continued with the introduction with a dial made from Arita Porcelain at an incredible price point.

Seiko is both a genius watchmaker and master in craftsmanship, not just in reliability and quality of their timepieces, but also in their aesthetics and craftsmanship. Therefore today we will be focusing more on the latter.

The Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain Blue Pwr Rsv Limited Edition Ref. SARW061 consists of a new traditional Japanese porcelain manufacturing technique with the combination of Seiko's usual watchmaking prowess. Whats intriguing is its new frost blue appeal.

Handmade multi-layered lacquer dial by master craftsman Isshu Tamura
The dial of the SARW061 is definitely where the highlight is. But before we get there, let's talk about what is Arita Porcelain.

The name Arita comes from its town located at the island of Kyushu. Since the 16th century, Arita town is the hub for Japanese porcelain making, even until today. Porcelain products made in Arita is uniquely Japanese and still appeal globally for its traditional handmade charm. Therefore Seiko has earned the appropriate right path to apply this material for its latest chapter in its new Presage model.

So let's get started and straight onto the dial. The complexity of applying porcelain at this level to the dial is done by master craftsman Hiroyuki Hashiguchi and his manufacturing company, who have been making traditional porcelain since 1830. They developed this multi-level process for Seiko relatively low volume, but that means things are done the good old conventional way right! The result? The Arita porcelain dial radiates a type of soft glossiness yet with deep finishing that not seen on the usual enamel dials.
 
Byakudan-nuri technique in blue
At first, the base material gone through a unique molding process that allows it to have a certain depth, where the power reserve indicator and date sub-dial at 9 and 6'o clock respectively amplify the effect. Then, the dial usually goes true a firing process at some 1300 degrees to harden and producing the cream-white colorway. But the new SARW061 has a more bluish makeover in which accentuates a refreshing look, instead of a sober gloss white finish found on the previous SARW049. Wait, this is only the beginning as the dial gets a special glaze treatment by Hashiguchi before another round of baking until the bonding of the glaze takes place on the dial. After inspection the cut out of the holes and frames for the respective hands, the dial is fired again to smoothen up the surface what we get a luxurious and soft gloss finishing with a certain blue tinge that inherits the Arita' legacy of porcelain making.

All these finishings brings similarity to the enamel finishing, where it has unrivaled longevity, making it impermeable to nearly anything for many years to come. Like enamel, the Arita dial on the SARW061 will continue to look as new as though it just came out fresh from the manufacturer even years down the road.
 
Mixture of high-polishing with satin-brushed finishing on case
The hour markers are painted in darker shade of blue, to keep the consistency of the dial theme. The attention to detail is carried down to the matching 20mm stainless steel bracelet, displaying a brushed finish with intricate polishing on the edges of the middle link. 


The watch case measures modestly at 40.6mm with a relatively proportioned profile of 14.1mm. With a lugs to lugs length of only 47.8mm, formating it to sit well most of our wrist. It includes a domed sapphire crystal that sits flushed to its polished case, with AR coating on the inner side.

Seiko caliber 6R27
Seen through its case back, the SARW061 is powered by Seiko's 6R automatic caliber, and the 6R27 operates at 28,800 BPH (4 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. It has 29 jewels with a power reserve of 45 hours through a Spron 510 mainspring.

With the 2000 pieces limited edition Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain Blue Pwr Rsv, Seiko has once again showcased their ability to produce an elegant timepiece, packed with traditional Japanese artistry techniques. This dynamic combination also showcases the design discipline behind the Urushi collection. With clean lines and high-level polishing with what is considered a unique blue dial available only to Seiko, this watch has a certain charisma that not seen in many other watches. It's more than meets the eye, appearing to be simple at first, until one scrutinizes it and realize the complexity and artistry work done to bring this dial to a whole new level.
