Luminous The Great Wave off Kanagawa Dial (No Date)


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.

What a beautiful dial! Exactly what I was looking for! Service was flawless and shipment from Singapore to the US east coast only took two days! Look forward to building an amazing watch. Thank you Adriel!

Awesome dial, brings joy :)

Beautiful dial, very good worksmanship. I was unsure how much I would like the hour markers on the website, but very glad I went for it. The build came out amazing.

Thank you Adriel!

Flawless again

It's hard to capture just how good this dial looks until you see it in person. Selecting the dial feet for a 7S26 required a bit of careful filing once the extra pins were snipped off, but the finish is durable and held up just fine to the little bit of extra handling.

Kanagawa Wave Dial

I has been after a special dial for some time, and after deciding to finally undertake the project I had no doubt where to come. I ordered the dial without hesitation, and anxiously awaited its arrival. But nothing prepared me for quite how exquisite it really is. In the hand, the delicate details, the colours and the crispness of the work are well beyond my expectations. Pictures do not do this work justice! To say I am pleased would be an understatement - I can not wait to complete this project and have this dial behind sapphire to gaze at all day!

It's art on your wrist. Great wave on the front to match the great wave on the caseback.
