Fine Wind, Clear Morning (凱風快晴, Gaifū kaisei), also known as South Wind, Clear Sky or Red Fuji, is an iconic woodblock print by Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾北斎), circa 1830 to 1832 in the late Edo period.
This artwork is the second print of the Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (富嶽三十六景 Fugaku Sanjūrokkei) landscape series and has been described as "one of the simplest and at the same time one of the most outstanding of all Japanese prints".
Given the rich history and origin of Hokusai and SEIKO, this is a perfectly paired appreciation of art and horology.
