    Every New Presage from Baselworld 2019





    Presage just released two absolutely beautiful new porcelain dials for Baselworld 2019.








    Like other Presages, the new models showcase a particular kind of Japanese craftsmanship, in this instance, Arita porcelain. Arita is a town which has, for centuries now, produced porcelain for Japan.

    Like all porcelain, Arita porcelain is usually quite delicate. Seiko, therefore, used a new kind of Arita porcelain, one which is four times harder than the ordinary kind and more flexible as well.







    The process to create these dials is quite arduous, requiring both skilled craftsmen and advanced machinery to give them their beautiful appearance. By the time the dial makes it into a new Presage, it has been fired three separate times at 1,300 degrees, received hand-applied glaze, and has been cut by lasers to create the holes for the date and hands.








    The result is a watch that I find extremely beautiful, even more so than many Grand Seikos. I've always been a fan of porcelain dials and the super smooth, super clean appearance that is hard to replicate in any other material. The two watches are both between 40 and 41 millimeters, a versatile size. The $1,700 SPB095 features the 6R35 movement while the $1,900 SPB097 uses 6R27.



    You can pre-order either of them here.

    As usual, an absolute steal for a genuine porcelain dial. With their enamel and Urushi dials, it's truly impossible to find better value for money.

    Very nice, and reasonably priced (didn't you mean Baselworld 2019?)

    Yes, thank you for pointing that out. I'm a bit sleep deprived working between the two time zones.

    Love the overall look. I just wish they had more options with Arabic numerals. I'm just not a Roman numeral guy.

    Pretty sharp. Dials look cool. I wish the three-hander didn’t have a date complication. Thanks for the heads up.

    I really like these. It’s what I thought the enamel models would be. Looking forward to hi res macro shots of the dial details. Will there be a chronograph with that nice column wheel movement?
