Urushi birthday 4 years & Counting

Apr 14, 2019,03:25 AM

Hi All Another shot of my Urushi Seiko - as I've said before one of my better choices. I've now had it 4 years & still wearing it every day.

Looking back and checking my posts - it is probably the most common one - tells you all you need to know. It's been a great & enjoyable watch & the depth of the dial is still mesmerising. The good news is that if you want one , they're still being made smile. Cheers JML

While not being called Presage...

This is most certainly where Seiko’s renaissance started. Superb watch and no wonder you wear it every day 👌🏻

This has been your most frequently posted watch -- and as noted, kicked of the Presage craze

I think we need to recognize this series of watches as the beginning of a renaissance of Seiko's mid-price watches. They cleverly got us from the $100-400 price band up towards $1000-1500 without impacting the higher tier of divers and Grand Seikos. How? ...

I think your analysis is pretty much spot on. I have another Presage Seiko & it's almost exactly the same other than the dial - the premium for the urushi dial was almost 100%. Which I was more than ok with. I think some of the newer ones are starting to ... 

Very true.

After all,it's the dial that attracts our initial attention,and coupled with a reasonable movement or function like date,power reserve,is a winning strategy. However, i think you can overdo a good thing,and as they flood the market with more 'interesting'... 

All right, thanks. (nt)

Impressive that you found a wristwatch that you can build so many memories with.

Let's talk about those battle scars...

A lovely piece, btw, and so many have obviously agreed with you. A wildly popular release. And I'm so glad to hear of someone who has found that "one" watch. It may not be forever, but that this deep satisfaction has lasted so long is—in my mind, at least... 

It's all personal choice

Hi Well they're not battle scars in truest sense, just a myriad of little scratches that come with wearing a watch - if you want it to be pristine, don't wear it , but that's no fun. So would I get it polished - I think so, to bring it back to how it was.... 

Sensible! Thanks. FH [nt]

My brother was over last weekend to celebrate Dad's 86th . . .

. . . and wearing his urushi. It was mine many years ago; today, the PADI represents modern Seiko in my collection. At least the urushi's still in the family! Best, Art ...  

It's good to share!

They both look great in the sun. PADI has a lot of appeal too. Cheers JML
