Recently, Seiko announced the launch of four new Presage series watches. All four watches are equipped with a stainless steel case, white handmade enamel dial and elegant inky black Roman numerals, and the digital hour markers have been repeatedly colored at least ten times to achieve the necessary visual depth effect.
Presage enamel dial automatic chronograph (SRQ023)
The most complicated of the four new timepieces is the automatic chronograph. The layout of the three chronograph dials is similar to last year’s limited edition, but there are subtle changes in design aesthetics. The hour markers are in Roman numerals, and the chronograph dial is decorated with Arabic numerals to ensure excellent readability. The dial has a circular date display window between four and five o’clock. The watch is 42 mm in diameter and 14.9 mm thick. It is slightly larger but suitable for wearing.
Equipped with a Seiko Caliber 8R48 self-winding movement with 45 gems and a 45-hour power reserve. The timing can be up to 12 hours. Equipped with a column wheel and a vertical clutch device, the running and timing functions are stable and reliable. It is reported that the Presage enamel dial automatic chronograph is priced at 2,650 euros (equivalent to about 19,000 yuan).
Presage Enamel Dial Multi-Hand Automatic Watch (SPB045)
The appearance of this watch looks a bit familiar, reminiscent of Seiko’s Presage 60th Anniversary Limited Edition watch launched in 2016. The watch is equipped with a central hour, minute, and second indicator, and a date dial and an analog power reserve indicator at 6 and 9 o’clock, respectively.
The stainless steel case has a diameter of 40.5 mm and a thickness of 12.8 mm. Equipped with Caliber 6R27 movement, containing 29 gems, a frequency of 28,800 vibrations / hour (4 Hz), and can provide a 45-hour power reserve. The power reserve display has a unique style. At first glance, it is a bit messy, and it is more charming to watch it carefully. It is reported that the Presage enamel dial multi-hand automatic watch is priced at 1,300 euros (equivalent to about 9,500 yuan).
Presage Automatic Round Enamel Plate Watch (SPB047) and Presage Barrel Enamel Plate Automatic Watch (SPB049)

The first model SPB047, round case, diameter 40.5 mm, thickness 12.4 mm, water-resistant to 100 meters; the second model SPB049, wine barrel-shaped case, size 46 mm x 35.9 mm and 12.5 mm, water resistance 50 meters . Both watches feature sapphire crystal mirrors and undersides, alligator straps and folding clasps.
Both watches are equipped with the same movement-Caliber 6R15 self-winding movement, containing 23 gems, a frequency of 21,600 vibrations / hour (3 Hz), a magnetic resistance of up to 4,800 A / m, and a 50-hour power reserve. It is reported that the Presage round enamel plate automatic watch is priced at 1,100 euros (equivalent to about 8,000 yuan), and the Presage barrel-shaped enamel plate automatic watch is priced at 1,300 euros (equivalent to about 9,500 yuan).
