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.
This artwork is painstakingly hand painted by an experience 70 years old artist in micro-painting. Each artwork requires 3 to 4 days to micro hand paint onto a dial. Serial numbers are labelled at 6 o'clock position (For aesthetic reason, we will reduce the serial number font size as seen here and may potentially change the serial number to printed instead of hand painted). Thereafter, dials are coated with enamel for a highly glossy finish. Lastly, beveled mirror polished silver hour indices are applied. An opulent process and finishing for a legendary artwork on a wrist.
***Note: This artwork on the dial is micro-painted by hand. Therefore, each artwork on the dial will defer to a certain degree in terms of colour and contour. Expect some differences. No two pieces will look exactly the same.
