Arita Porcelain - Boasting 400 years of history

In the early 1600s, clay suitable for porcelain was discovered in Arita, a small Japanese town in northwest Kyushu, and a new Japanese tradition was born. By the end of the century, Arita porcelain was not only popular in Japan, it had also become a highly coveted status symbol in royal palaces throughout Europe.

For over 400 years, Arita has remained the spiritual centre of porcelain crafting in Japan — honouring a heritage of artistic mastery that excites collectors and fires the imagination of craftsmen throughout the world.
Now Seiko Presage pays tribute to this elegant Japanese tradition with three exceptional timepieces featuring dials of Arita porcelain.

Blending two of Japan’s most notable characteristics — tradition and technology — the Seiko Presage Arita Porcelain is a tribute to the spirit of craftsmanship. Overseen by master craftsman Hiroyuki Hashiguchi, the project involved years of experimentation, for it required high levels of precision. Additionally, a new type of Arita porcelain was formulated to increase durability.
A high-precision mould is used to ensure the consistency of size, depth and recesses. After drying, the dials are baked at 1300 °C, hand glazed, and baked again. The second firing bonds the glaze to the dial and brings out the subtle blue tint. Finally, holes for the hands and date window are made, and a third baking smoothens the surfaces.
