Don't listen to the naysayers ^, it is a timepiece that displays the time!

Will not get much better than that unless it was Swiss made, so I say pull the trigger on that bad boy and enjoy!

Cod rox it. These dials are hand lacquered by old Japanese masters and are unique pieces of art. Now go sharpen your lawnmower.

I don't get it.
Day/date subdials are impossible to read and pretty much suck. They ruin any fancy pants dial material. Especially when they are placed in a position that overlaps the hour markers. Like an afterthought.

Meh.

You need to hold such an Urushi dial watch in Your own hands in order to appreciate it.

No doubt,but adding those subdials is like painting a moustache on the Mona Lisa.
