Craftsmanship Series Urushi Dial Limited Edition

The magical beauty of Kanazawa is captured in a deep green Urushi lacquer dial

Kanazawa is where Lacquer artist Isshu Tamura produces works using techniques unique to Kanazawa Urushi lacquerware.
With this new watch, Mr. Tamura expresses the beauty of summer in Kanazawa and the Hokuriku region.
The green Urushi dial evokes a moss garden and the watch hands in gold capture the sunlight falling through the trees.
Equipped with Caliber 6R24, the watch’s date, day of the week, and power reserve hands move like a Japanese fan,
each day revealing a different and unique expression.
Traditional Japanese crafts using Urushi are highly valued worlwide for their beauty and practicality.
The Urushi dial crafted by Tamura, is an expression of his aesthetic sense and is a fusion of traditional craftwork techniques handed down from generation to generation with modern manufacturing technology.
The dials are finished using an innovative manufacturing method that directly combines metal with Urushi and traditional craftwork techniques that produce a smooth surface.
As Urushi continues to harden without solidifying, it does not deteriorate and its durability continues to increase with time.
The Urushi applied to the dial must have a beautiful luster, yet be thick enough not to interfere with the movement of the hands, requiring a high level of skill to produce.
The see-through case back of the watch is marked with the words “Limited Edition” and the serial number.
* In an actual product, the case back direction might be different from the image.
