Watch which we adopted is commercialized in Arita ware by clockface
In Basel world (from 21 to 26 on March) held in Switzerland on March 21, 2019 (Heisei 31) (Japan time), watch "<< seikopurezaju >> prestige line Arita ware dial model" who adopted Arita ware to clockface (dial) was announced by SEIKO watch.
<< seikopurezaju >>, at prestige line, watch which took in Japanese artisans of enamel and lacquer, Shippo is sold, and will increase Arita ware newly this time.
We reached manufacture by fusion of technique and the old and the new technology by utilization of Patent technology "reinforcement porcelain and process of manufacture" which we developed in the Ceramics Technology Research Center in addition to artistry (※) that Arita ware was traditional.
Strength that was high as clockface (dial) was very thin was necessary, and it was difficult to get performance that was enough with conventional porcelain. In addition, there were many problems while making use of luster tinged with light blue that was charm peculiar to Arita ware to mass-produce with precision that was necessary for clockface (dial). We solved these problems by technological assistances from patent technology of Ceramics Technology Research Center and the center to pottery "shin kiln" which supervised clockface (dial) production and were connected for manufacture.
Please enjoy history 400 years or more, Arita ware utilized artistry and collaboration of watch.
