Seiko dials by Hazeninety

Today i want to talk about something special, not specifically about watches but about Seiko dials!

I just discovered on Instagram a really talented guy @hazeninety and he is making really interesting custom seiko dials and customized watches also on commission.

You can find some very interesting timepieces and dials on his site here

Seiko Dials – Kintsugi dial

As you can see the use of gold is really important for these dials and the final result is absolutely incredible.

This dial has been plated with twice the amount of 18K gold.

The matte black dial is also embossed in the traditional Japanese Seigaiha wave pattern that along with the gold plated cracks plays with the light like never before.

The dial is 28.5mm in diameter, and has no feet, dial dot adhesives are provided with each purchase.

Price of the dial 55 $

Dial + watch 575 $

Seigaiha

The Seigaiha wave pattern has been weaved into Japanese culture for decades, symbolizing Japan’s historic connection to the Sea.

Matte black & gold dial celebrates that ornate tradition in a simple and elegant way. The dial is 28.5mm in diameter, with a date window at 3 and outer portion of the dial is plated with 18K gold, in addition to the Kanji symbol “Umi” meaning “The Sea” seen at the bottom center-left.

Central portion of the dial has been kept black to enhance legibility, it also previews the Seigaiha wave in black embossing that creates texture and plays with the light.

This is the very first Dial released with our own Logo plated in Gold, its a limited run of 75 pieces.

Price of the dial 50 $

Dial + watch 300$ (sold out)

One of my favourite is the California Kintsugi Dial,a mix of Roman Numerals with Japanese Kanji hour markers. Separated by gold plated cracks inspired by Japanese Kintsugi art.
Limited to 50 pieces!

Being influenced by Japanese art and tradition for a long time, this watchmaker decided to take inspiration from California style dials, and put a spin on it.

He realized that in essence this isn’t a California dial truly, however he believed that the Roman & Kanji hour marker combination in an East meets West has its own appeal.

Gold cracks are inspired by Japanese Kintsugi art and run the length of the dial.

The hour markers, logo and the cracks are plated with 18K gold, with Automatic white print in the bottom center and the word “KINTSUGI” in gold print.

Dial sits in an OEM Seiko case, covered by a Sapphire and running a 4r35 movement.

Hands hands are Swiss diamond cut Dauphine hands, with an OEM SARB needle seconds hand. Would love to hear your thoughts!

Two-tone 62 mas homage watch

This custom build uses top of the line parts. Highly finished 62mas style case, with slim case-back, triple gasket screwdown crown, a top hat sapphire with Blue Anti reflective coating, a lumed sapphire bezel insert with matching gold gilt.

The dial has been designed and made by me. It’s 18K gold plated, with lumed and applied indices installed. The dial is inspired by the Japanese Seigaiha wave pattern, showing around the periphery of the dial plated in gold, while is embossed onto the matte black background of the dial.

The Kanji script is read as “Umi” meaning the sea.

Of course on the site https://www.seikodials.com/ you can find a lot of options both for dials and for the watches so you can choose your favourite!
