The Seiko Presage Sharp Edged Series case and bracelet incorporate many flat surfaces that have a modern sharpness that allows the watch to shine and sparkle from every angle. The precisely engineered and polished surfaces and the crisp edges of its silhouette contrast with the subtle hairline finish to create a pleasingly multi-dimensional effect.
The dial incorporates a Japanese Asanoha or hemp leaf pattern, familiar in Japanese culture for its use in design since the Heian period over a thousand years ago. The fibres that make up the plant's stem were traditionally used to make fabrics and the leaf pattern holds a special importance in Japanese culture as it symbolises rapid, strong growth and was thought to bring good health, especially to the young. The rich texture and intricacy of the dial's sharply edged geometric pattern create a subtle colour gradation as they play with the light at different angles.
Each watch offers a dial with a different traditional Japanese colour; Shironeri, an unbleached silky white, Aitetsu, or indigo iron, Tokiwa, the colour of evergreen trees and Susutake, a brown-toned smoked bamboo. In addition, Sumi-iro, the tone of black Japanese ink, Ebi-iro, the colour of crimson glory vines, Binroujikuro, an elegant black colour with a hint of blue, and Suzu-iro, light gray, join the collection.
