In the high-end watch section, Credor, which was originally positioned as another brand, was included under the Seiko brand, and became a style series that perfectly combined Eastern and Western culture and art with top watchmaking technology. Seiko invites the Japanese national treasure goldsmith Terui Iki and the chief assembly master Sakurada Mori to join hands to create a carved gold half-hunting watch, under the mutual carving of the black butterfly shell and the 18K gold solid gold case , Highlighting the extraordinary value, achieving exquisite fine art.
The engraved gold watch launched by Credor in 2010 is a semi-hunting watch design that can be opened by pressing the handle. The metal engraved hollow hunting watch is also the most striking design feature of this watch. The watch is based on the theme of Western architectural relief art, which developed to the peak during the Meiji period in Japan. The material of the face plate is a natural black butterfly shell material with beautiful markings. Because the black butterfly shell material is quite hard and brittle, it greatly increases the difficulty in the engraving process and shows the preciousness of the finished product.
The outer edge of the face plate will change the direction of the speckled black butterfly shell streaks, giving out a dazzling brightness like a checkerboard grid. After grinding and adjusting the direction of the texture in the center of the faceplate, based on the traditional Japanese pattern ‘Ryozu’ combined into a rhombus, the image of the wind across the land and the clouds floating in the sky is drawn. The three-dimensional gold carving on the face plate at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock and the central wheel ring part, under the mutual contrast of hand-carved black butterfly shell and 18K gold three-dimensional gold carved case, can highlight its charm and extraordinary value. Where. Between the special perspective backsole design and the movement, the traditional Japanese beauty and western culture are combined, and the 18K-made decorative plate with the image of a compass is used to present the perfect artistic blending of lines and aesthetics.

In addition to the difficulty of mass production of ultra-thin movements, the assembly, precision adjustment, and production of ultra-thin parts are a test of watchmaking ability. If ultra-thin movements are equipped with top-level carving technology, It is extremely challenging and precious. The CREDOR ultra-thin carved gold watch is a rare and rare watch made by Japan’s chief watch assembler Sakurada and national treasure-level gold carving master Terui Kisei, which combines art and technology. Master Terui Kiyoshi is responsible for the gold carving technique, which is different from the western gold carving technique. It uses a personal special file to draw the three-dimensional gloss carving gold technique like a flowing cloud. Master Sakurada is in charge of all the engineering such as assembly, adjustment, and casing. The two famous craftsmen won the highest honor in Japan-the National Medal of Honor ‘Hwangji-chan’ in 2007 (2005) and 2007 (2007), and they can be called master figures in watchmaking. Through the master craftsmanship of the two masters, the sublimation of the world of CREDOR aesthetics fully presents a perfect symphony of mechanical technology and master craftsmanship.
