Seiko Presage Ghibli's Castle in The Sky

Post by koimaster » June 23rd 2021, 4:17pm

Seiko has returned to Studio Ghibli’s back catalogue of classics for its latest limited edition Presage, this time going in search of Laputa: Castle in the Sky.

After channeling the daring adventures of Porco Rosso in watch form, Seiko has once again partnered with Hayao Miyazaki‘s legendary animation studio.

The new 40.5mm stainless steel watch focuses on the symbology used to locate the floating city of Laputa in the 1986 animated classic with the city’s crest present on both the watch’s enamel dial, produced by Seiko’s veteran enamelist Mitsuru Yokosawa, and its glass crown insert.

On the reverse is a sapphire crystal caseback featuring a reproduction of the photograph of Laputa that stokes protagonist Pazu’s curiosity throughout the film. This is surrounded by the words of the chant later used to unlock the city’s power.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
