3 Presage Dials

I wish my camera was better but here is my little family of Presages, 2 enamel and 1 urushi lacquer. They are all excellent watches as one would expect from the higher quality Presage models. Comparing the two 3 handers is difficult. With very subtle color and material differences I get very different moods from the two watches. On the left is the limited edition blue enamel. It actually projects a darker mood with the white hands and numerals seeming to come out of the mist. On the other hand the black urushi is brighter in the hands and dial while the richness of the lacquer invites one to ponder on the darkness beyond. The watches are pretty identical as far as case and strap but I think the blue enamel has a higher degree of Zaratsu shine, a higher quality strap and deployant. I'm not sure the slight upgrades including the pine box it comes in justifies the difference in price. The white chrono really takes advantage of the white enamel finish. The sub dials are easy to read even for an old guy like me and the 8R movement makes the mechanical nature of the watch quite remarkable. Like a lot of Seikos I find the thickness of the case a bit too tall. GS hand winds and GS quartz are much thinner and very tempting. I think the urushi is most upbeat and will get good wrist time.

That chrono makes me giggle with joy like a school girl. Gawd, it is truly art.

The chrono gives me a big, spurting boner.

Far right, please.
