Mobilizing all the efforts of highly skilled craftsmen and cutting-edge technology, Seiko Watch Corp. is releasing another masterpiece watch; a new version of the Eichi II from its luxury Credor line this summer.
Released in 2014, the Eichi II is a handmade, platinum watch with a Spring Drive movement and hand-decorated porcelain dial. The new version is made with a rose gold case to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original 2008 Eichi. As eichi means wisdom in Japanese, the creation and evolution of the Eichi and Eichi II are part of an ongoing quest to realize the ultimate beauty of simplicity in watchmaking at the Shiojiri factory of Seiko Epson Corp. in Nagano Prefecture. Seiko Epson, formerly known as Suwa Seikosha Co. Ltd., has been an important supplier of Seiko watches, and it is the very place where “made in Japan” watches were first developed after World War II.
