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. That is, the luminous pigment is 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 allows adequate 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 masterpiece, we are increasing the quantity. Nonetheless, it will still remain a limited edition run.

Just perfect!

It is my best dial! I never seen this before and it is awesome especially at night :)

Worth it

Even more stunning in person. Comes with a hand written note which is a nice touch. If you are even thinking about it, just get it. The workmanship is clearly there and worth the price.

Purchased and put into SKX007

After 1 month plus changed of my Double Dome, then realized that the dial wasn't truly excellent until I changed of the glass. It's truly nice and it's what I wanted. Great full lume!

Amazing dial, fast shipping, great experience :)

Really amazing dial. Phenomenal lume, the detail and texture on the waves, the angled hour markers, are all just gorgeous.
Shipping time was super quick considering it came all the way from Singapore to the US in just a few days!
Super friendly and handwritten note inside package, it really makes you feel a sort of connection with the artist.

As a side note, this is my first time modding a watch and I found the tutorials on this site really helpful too. Couldn't have finished my project without them to be honest.

Beautiful DiL

This dial is just stunning, both in light and lumed. Can't wait to have it cased up!

The dial is absolutely stunning. Pictures don't do it justice, seriously. The slightly gritty, faded texture looks phenomenal and the lume is insane.

I bought the blued pilot hands to go along with it and I'm very happy.

Just perfect =)

I'm quite new to the watch world but this product definitely was the gateway to it.
Package took one week to travel Singapore -> Paris which is great. The dial arrived with a personalized card from Adriel and a few finger cots which is even GREATER.
The dial itself is amazing, even sexier IRL than on the pics. When I unboxed the thing, it was like the first time I saw it :)
Everything is perfect, all the details are flawless!
Finally, Adriel is very available if you got any question or if you want to adress him a kind ( and deserved ) word.
I'll definitely purchase again here, it's high quality, very good service and value!
Watch is still not assembled but I'll try to update this post with a few pics when it will be done.
Thanks Adriel, cheers from Fr!
