Outstanding in every way, the new Seiko Presage Fuyugeshiki is the newest member of the Japanese watchmakers’ super successful “Cocktail” line of watches. Fuyugeshiki in the literal sense, means ‘Winter Scenery’ and for this edition, Seiko has continued its collaboration with Hisashi Kishi, the head bartender at the STAR BAR in Tokyo’s Ginza area and taken all its inspiration from Kishi’s latest creation – Fuyugeshiki.
The new Seiko Presage Fuyugeshiki watch comes in 3 versions and features a pure white delicately patterned dial, sparkled with light, that evokes the beautiful scenery of winter in Japan.
