A new limited edition with a new expression of modernity in the "Urushi" dial that Credor has been working on for a long time
This is a contemporary model with geometric mother-of-pearl inlays embedded in the black lacquer dial by master Kaga maki-e lacquer craftsman Tamura Isshu.
The design theme is "Ryusei Raden". The radiant glow of mother-of-pearl inlay shells vividly expresses a meteor shower of countless stars flowing in a radial pattern.

The width of the mother-of-pearl inlay shell is cut as thin as 0.2 mm to the utmost limit, and the raden is cut extremely fine using advanced processing technology and manual labor.

Raden in the abbreviations are made of brightly colored white butterfly shells to ensure legibility of the time. Other mother-of-pearl inlays are made of luminous shells that emit a variety of colors, allowing the wearer to fully appreciate the exquisite handcraftsmanship.

Due to the craftsmanship necessary to create the dial, CREDOR has limited the production of this watch to only 60 pieces worldwide.  This watch is one of 60!  

Cal.68 Series
The Caliber 68 Series* is one of the thinnest mechanical movements in the world, measuring only 1.98 mm (about the thickness of a 500 yen coin), and has been manufactured exclusively for Credor since 1993. 1.98 mm is so thin that highly skilled watchmakers consistently handle everything from assembly and adjustment to casing. The watchmakers are highly skilled and are responsible for all assembly, adjustment, and casing. The final finishing touches are made solely by the watchmaker's sense of touch. 68 series movements are produced in small quantities, with even a single master watchmaker assembling only one to two pieces per day. Even a master watchmaker can assemble only one to two Series 68 movements per day.
Even watchmakers say, "Even if I have been doing this for years, it's still difficult to adjust the agaki, the ankle, the whiskers, etc. This is truly a handmade watch. This movement is truly a handmade watch.
