Ever since its launch in 2016, Seiko Presage has showcased timepieces that meld traditional Japanese decorative crafts displaying deep, hard-earned know-how with Seiko’s own long-established mastery of mechanical watchmaking. In doing so, the Presage Craftsmanship Series puts a spotlight on artisans whose finesse in traditional Japanese crafts finds new life on the miniature canvas that is a Seiko watch dial.

Three days of power reserve
Powered by one of Seiko’s latest in-house movements, Caliber 6R55, each watch has a power reserve extending to a full 72 hours, allowing wearers to remove their watch on Friday afternoon and return to it Monday morning without having to reset the time. This marks the first time that this three-day movement has appeared in the Presage Craftsmanship Series.
All three watches will be available at the select Seiko Retailers nationwide from October 2023.
