The artistry of traditional Japanese craftsmanship is a central feature of the Seiko Presage Collection, combining fine mechanical watchmaking with various forms of art. Studio Ghibli’s animated films have won the favor of fans worldwide for their imaginative settings, distinctive visuals, and masterful storytelling. Today, Seiko introduces into the Presage Craftsmanship Series a new enamel-dialed watch that captures the worldview of one of the most renowned Japanese animated films ever: Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.
Released in 1984, the film takes place 1,000 years after the destruction of modern civilization in a war known as the Seven Days of Fire. In the polluted land, a forest of fungi called the Sea of Decay is gradually spreading and is inhabited by a species of giant mutant insects.
Nausicaä, the Princess of the Valley of the Wind, becomes embroiled in a struggle between two kingdoms. She strives to unravel the mysteries of the Sea of Decay and find a way for the natural world and human beings to coexist.
