Seiko Introduces Presage with Hand-Made Rice Cracker Dial

Seiko Introduces Presage with Hand-Made Rice Cracker Dial

Postby Racer-X » March 31st 2019, 2:24pm

"Following on the Presage watches that feature dials made with traditional Japanese crafts, including Shippo enamel and Arita porcelain, Seiko has introduce the Presage Senbei.

Senbei, or 煎餅, is a traditional Japanese rice cracker that’s made by baking over charcoal as it is painted with a savoury sauce. It is sometimes eaten with a piece of seaweed, or nori, on top.

Just like how Seiko incorporated tuna into its iconic “Tuna” dive watch, Seiko has translated that into a watch dial that’s essentially a piece of senbei. The senbei is the product of a skilled artisan whose family has been baking senbei for generations."

But, if you are lost in the woods and at lunchtime, you eat your watch, how would you know when it was dinner time?

Meh. They're just copying Moser and their Swiss cheese case.

Pretty cool. Their following in the footsteps of H. Moser. Depending on price, I'd buy one.
