"The Seiko Credor Eichi watches are, in many respects, unique among high-end timepieces. They show only the hours, minutes, and seconds, and when the first version was released, in 2008, it was already a watch that was all about essentials; it was from outset powered by Seiko's Spring Drive technology (in the very first version, this was Spring Drive caliber 7R08). The original Eichi has a Noritake porcelain dial, a platinum case, and heat blued hands; it also includes an indication for the power reserve, with the pivot anchored at the outer end of the 10:00 hour marker. The dial markers and logo are a very deep blue and applied by hand, which seems very hard to believe at first – they're extremely finely done – until you look very closely and see the almost invisible, virtually microscopic variations in line width and edge consistency that testify to manual application."
