Seiko Lukia. The Glamour Of Ginza. The Refinement Of Japan

Soon after Japan opened its doors to the world in the second half of the 19th century, the Ginza district in central Tokyo became its showcase. When Japan’s first railway opened in 1872, its Tokyo terminus was at the edge of Ginza which rapidly became the center for shops selling all that was new and fashionable.

It was soon also the hub of the media business and home to the many cafés and bars that were the new meeting places for artists and writers. Today, Ginza remains synonymous with all that is glamorous and exciting about Tokyo and is, in many respects, Japan’s window on the world. Ginza is also home to Seiko. Seiko was established in Ginza in 1881 and the Seiko clock that sits atop the Wako store, where Seiko was long headquartered, is a much-loved Ginza landmark.
 

Lukia. Capturing the spirit of Ginza

The new Seiko Lukia collection celebrates the glamour, vivacity and refinement of today’s Ginza. Since 1995, Lukia has been adorning the wrists of discerning women in Japan and it is now, for the first time, available outside of Asia. The collection comprises six creations, each of which has a dial featuring a traditional Japanese color overlaid on a mother-of-pearl base with a flower motif and eight diamond hour markers. Each dial is colored from both sides, which allows the full richness of the color to blend harmoniously with the texture of the mother-of-pearl dial. The case offers a soft, delicate feeling on the wrist thanks to its perfectly rounded edges.

Five of the six new creations will be available from July 2020, with a limited edition to follow in September. All will be available in selected Seiko Boutiques.

Powered by life. Crafted to be enjoyed.

The new Lukia series is powered by Seiko’s latest automatic caliber, 6R35, which delivers a power reserve of 70 hours. It can be seen through the sapphire case back, marking time at 21,600 beats per hour. Each watch is water resistant to 10 bar and has a sapphire crystal that is resistant to scratches. Lukia is built to be enjoyed every day, in every situation.

The New Seiko Lukia Collection

To celebrate the arrival of Lukia on the international stage, a special watch is offered in a limited edition of just 250. Its dial is the color, Tsukishiro, of the blue-white evening sky that frames the Ginza skyline as the moon is about to appear. It has 55 diamonds on the bezel and eight diamonds on the dial. The unique and distinguished look of the strap is made possible by a special, two-stage dyeing method. After the leather is first dyed white, the grooves in the pattern are then dyed light blue.
