A DESIGN THAT EVOKES AKEBONO, A JAPANESE TERM FOR WHEN THE DARKNESS OF NIGHT GIVES WAY TO DAWN
Laputa, the city among the skies.
Every corner of the watch hints at key aspects of the film. Even the watch strap’s back bears the inscription on the keystone found in the floating castle.
THE NEW MOVEMENT JOINS THE 6R35 SERIES.
The watch is powered by a new version of Seiko’s high – performance 6R35 movement, Caliber 6R31. Like Caliber 6R35, the movement delivers a power reserve of 70 hours and shares the same performance attributes, but without a date window. Every aspect of the watch reflects the care and craftsmanship for which Presage is renowned. The crystal glass is a dual-curved sapphire and is treated with anti-reflective coating on the inner surface that delivers high legibility from any angle. The exhibition case back reveals the fine finishing of the movement, and the watch is 10 bar water resistant.
The watch will be available as a limited edition of 1,200 pieces at Seiko Boutiques and select retailers worldwide in July 2021.
The watch is offered in a special presentation box with an illustration of Laputa and carries a card message from the film’s director, Hayao Miyazaki.
The key chant to the story, “Leetay Latuparita Ulus Aria Los Balu Netoreel“ or “save me and revive the eternal light” in the Laputan language, is inscribed on the caseback.
