Anime Studio-Themed Timepieces : Presage watch

1 min read

Seiko offers a playful iteration of the limited edition Presage Watch design for the season, made in collaboration alongside Studio Ghibli. The duo join forces to search for ‘Laputa: Castle in the Sky.’ The watch has a 40.5mm stainless steel case and is designed to be reminiscent of the symbol used to locate Laputa.

Laputa is a fictional floating city from the 1986 animated film. The city’s crest is presented on the timepiece as well, seen on the enamel dial crafted by the watch brand’s veteran enamelist, Mitsuru Yokosawa. The back of the watch sees a sapphire crystal caseback for an elevated look and a photo of Laputa along with the protagonist of the film, Paz, surrounded by the words of a chant from the movie.
