Seiko Watch Corporation began in Ginza, Tokyo in 1881 as a watch and clock repair business and have been making innovations in watchmaking ever since. This particular design is one of the 140th anniversary collection timepieces marking key periods in the brand’s history and is a Limited Edition of 3,500. This watch, with an eye-catching blue bezel, is from the popular Presage Sharp Edged series and has been designed for practical international timekeeping. The GMT hand and high visibility hour markers, along with clear 24-hour bezel, mean multiple time zone calculations can be made at a glance, quickly and easily. The Seiko SPB223J1 Presage watch combines a 42.2mm round shaped stainless steel case and a stainless steel bracelet with a push button deployment clasp. It has a silver tone analogue dial which is protected beneath sapphire crystal glass. Power is generated by the automatic movement. This model also has a water resistance of up to 100 metres. The dials on Presage Sharp Edged timepieces feature a traditional Japanese pattern designed to bring growth and success. This angular ancient hemp print has been seen in Japanese artisan objects since the Heian period (794-1185). Seiko Presage: Timeless looks, precisely Japanese mechanical timekeeping. Minimalistic watch designs with a distinctly Japanese aesthetic.
