About Our Limited Edition Dials

The Great Wave off Kanagawa (神奈川沖浪裏, Kanagawa-oki nami ura) is an iconic woodblock print by Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾北斎), circa 1829 to 1833 in the late Edo period. To date, this remains as Hokusai's most famous piece of work and has been one of the most recognisable works of Japanese Art in the world.

Given the rich history and origin of Hokusai and SEIKO, this is a perfectly paired appreciation of art and horology.

Our first introduction of The Great Wave off Kanagawa Dial was dated back in 4th December 2018. They were highly popular and was completely sold out within a month or so during pre-order stage. It been about 6 months since then. During this period, we spent tons of effort in research and development and we are ready to once again bring back The Great Wave off Kanagawa Dial in a brand new form!!

Introducing a novel approach to dial making - Pushing the limits of dial making technology. By having the luminous pigment layered beneath the artwork. This novel approach is invented by us and only we can do it. First of its kind and the only one of its kind in the watch industry.

Firstly, the base of the dial starts off with a white based coat. Secondly, 100% Swiss Super-LumiNova BGW9 is generously multilayered onto the white base dial. Thirdly, The Great Wave off Kanagawa artwork is industrially printed onto a special crystal clear film. This film even with printed artwork still adequately allows UV to charge the luminous pigment and also allows the luminous pigment light to fluorescence through. Next, the artwork film is bond onto the luminous pigment directly using proprietary adhesive. All these into a 0.5mm dial thickness. Lastly, applied indices are punched onto the dial. These tedious production stages are conducted in three different industrial production plants.

All of these efforts resulted in a unique and one of a kind dial in the world. A high definition clarity of The Great Wave off Kanagawa in the day and a luminous piece of artwork in the night. This dial has a semi-glossy and grainy 3D texture that highlights the beauty of The Great Wave off Kanagawa artwork in an unprecedented premium quality. Finished off with beveled mirror polished silver hour indices.

As this being our first unique manufacturing masterpiece, we are increasing the quantity. Nonetheless, it will still remain a limited edition run.

Super dial, managed to chip it slightly in the corner 😭 but thankfully once cased it was 👌. Phew 😅! Glow is awesome, looks so cool at night.

The Devil is in the Details

Oh boy... Where to begin? this dial really needs to be seen in person. Photos just don't do it justice. Looking at the dial for any length of time starts to reveal beautifully subtle details that are otherwise lost at a glance. The application of the indices is perfect and the lume is such a fun addition to this piece. Keeping the lume behind the image makes a beautiful silhouette at night. This is my second dial from Lucius Atelier and it will not be my last. It's perfect in every way and such a fun addition to my watch.

Worth every penny

Super quality love to see what the future holds

A brand new watch

This is uncharted waters for me. In the beginning, the watch to mad was supposed to be SKX007, but I've modded mine in totally different way and had problems to buy one in good price. Then I've found a Pagani Design watch (with NH35 movement) on most famous Chinese website. The reviews on WUS were good, price was even better...
You can see the result.
As for dial: superb quality. Great packaging. Before fitting it - read the blog.

Base: Pagani Design PD-1639
Dial: Lucius Atelier Luminous The Great Wave off Kanagawa Dial (Date)
Hands: One Second Closer (hour and minute: The Final Fantasy Red+Black, second: The Hellfire Red)

I still can't believe how beautiful it is

Absolutely stunning piece, I can see the passion that went behind the creation of this dial every single time I look at my watch. The handwritten note was a very nice touch as well, it really just shows how dedicated this guy is to making his products as amazing as possible. You have made a customer for life and you will see me buying from here much more often.
