For several years, we have been trying to make a lapis lazuli gemstone dial. Unlike big boy brands that utilised lapis lazuli gemstone as dial, their thickness are generally between 1-2mm. Making a compatible thickness of 0.4mm for Seiko mod parts was a huge challenge and a major roadblock. Throughout the years, no gemstone jeweller was willing and/or capable of achieving this razor thin thickness without compromising on the rigidity of the dial.

Well... finally we managed to achieve it with the help of a valiant gemstone jeweller.

A Genuine Lapis Lazuli Gemstone. Highest grade we can get our hands on. Gorgeous ultramarine blue with specks of pyrite (gold) and minimum calcite (white).

Each lapis lazuli gemstone dial is hand-crafted, hand-cut, hand-sanded and uniquely different. No two pieces are ever the same. Even the minute indices, logo and automatic are individually applied.

Lapis lazuli is polished finished decorated with classic and dressy silver polished applied indices hour and minute markers. Logo and automatic are also applied polished silver.

*No two dials are ever alike. Every dial is distinct.

**Logo, automatic and minute markers are removable. However, the residue adhesive must be skilfully removed and cleaned.

Note: Firstly, this dial is a pure lapis lazuli without brass base and legs. Therefore requires skilful dial/movement orientation. Included are adhesive rings to adhere precisely onto the movement's dial holding spacer. Secondly, minute markers are gently applied onto the dial with adhesive and will come off if touched. Please ensure you take great care when working with this dial and avoid touching the minute markers. Lastly, ensure caseback is not too tightly screwed down as the sandwich effect of the dial between the case and caseback can potentially crack the lapis lazuli gemstone. Due to difficulty working with this dial, this dial is ONLY recommended for professional watchmakers and highly skilled/experienced modders with great level of finesse.
