Introducing: The Seiko Presage Enamel Collection, A Quartet Of Elegant Everyday Watches
Seiko’s Presage assortment is a standout amongst other maintained mysteries in watchmaking. While Grand Seiko and Prospex stand out enough to be noticed, Presage proceeds discreetly conveying staggering worth and delightful styles without so much as a second thought. Today Seiko has reported another expansion to the Presage assortment, a bunch of four straightforward watches each bearing a hand-made polish dial with rich Roman numerals. We should investigate these new watches and what they bring to the table.
Just a couple of months prior we got a restricted release watch for Presage’s 60th commemoration , yet prior in 2016 Seiko acquainted a couple of chronographs with mark a similar event. One had a dark Urushi finish dial, however the other had a brilliant white polish dial. It’s this last watch that fills in as a bouncing off point for the assortment we have here today. Every one of the four of these watches are joined by their steel cases and terminated white finish dials (kind of what might be compared to the Swiss grand feu), which have inky dark Roman numerals that are painted at any rate multiple times over on each dial to accomplish the visual profundity necessary.
You can get familiar with Seiko’s finish work here. In any case, on to the watches themselves.
Forecast Enamel Automatic Chronograph
This non-restricted model offers a more direct interpretation of the Presage three-register chronograph.
We’ll kick things off with the most complicated watch of the pack. The Automatic Chronograph is by and large what it seems like. The three-register dial format is natural from a year ago’s restricted release, however various tasteful changes have been instituted also. The hour markers are currently Roman numerals rather than the Breguet-style numerals and there are no red accents to be had by any stretch of the imagination. On the sub-register there are Arabic numerals for the good of neatness. Tucked somewhere in the range of four and five o’clock is a little date window that is careful enough that it shouldn’t raise a ruckus. The watch is 42mm across and 14.9mm thick, so it’s on the enormous side yet stays very wearable.
Powering this watch is the Seiko type 8R48. It is a programmed development with a 45-hour power hold that runs in 45 gems. The chronograph tallies as long as 12 hours and has both a segment haggle vertical grip framework, making it an incredible solid, workhorse chrono movement.
The Presage Enamel Automatic Chronograph will retail for €2,650 (roughly $2,815 at season of publishing).
Forecast Enamel Multi-Hand Automatic
The irregular design of the date and force save here abnormally works.
This observe by and by presumably looks a little recognizable, this time reviewing the other restricted release 60th commemoration Presage from 2016. It shows the hours, minutes, and seconds with midway mounted hands, and afterward adds a force hold marker at nine o’clock and a sub-dial to show the date at six o’clock.
Inside the 40.5mm x 12.8mm steel case is the type 6R27. It’s a 4 Hz development with 29 gems that packs a 45-hour power hold. The manner in which it shows the complications – themselves not that abnormal by any means – is unquestionably a-common, and it looks somewhat jumbled from the outset. Be that as it may, the more I’ve absorbed it, the more I’ve come to like it.
The Presage Enamel Multi-Hand Automatic will retail for €1,300 (roughly $1,380 at season of publishing).
Augur Automatic, Round And Tonneau
The programmed rendition of this watch comes in two profiles, however both convey a similar development inside.
Finally we have the essential programmed models – and there are two of them, and they offer two totally different looks. The primary, the reference SPB047, is round and comes in at 40.5mm in distance across and 12.4mm thick with 100-meter water opposition. The second, the reference SPB049, is tonneau-molded and gauges 46mm x 35.9mm and 12.5mm thick with 50-meter water obstruction. Both have sapphire gems front and back, and come on crocodile ties with collapsing buckles.
Both observes likewise have a similar development inside. The type 6R15 is moderately direct programmed development with a 50-hour power save that runs in 23 gems. The equilibrium beats at an extremely conventional 3 Hz, which is somewhat more slow than the 3.5 Hz that is more normal nowadays. The two watches are likewise hostile to magnetic up to 4,800 A/m and come with steel collapsing clasps rather than straightforward pin buckles.
The round Presage Enamel Automatic will retail for €1,100 (roughly $1,170 at season of distributing), while the tonneau rendition will retail for €1,300 (around $1,380 at season of publishing).
These watches will all be accessible around September 2017, and, in contrast to a year ago’s chronograph, they’re augmentations to the fundamental assortment, not restricted releases. For additional, visit Seiko Presage on the web .
