**Price: $1,730 net with free overnight shipping to the CONUS!** Album: https://imgur.com/a/9ObxDzW Timestamp: https://imgur.com/YEIx2FW Up for sale today is the lovely limited-edition (of 2000 pieces) Seiko SPB085 “Urushi Byakudan-nuri” which is in like-new condition and still has nearly two years left on its original warranty! The full original kit is included (box, papers, manual, original strap and clasp). The motif for this watch’s dial is the moon at dawn. Three techniques showcase Isshu Tamura’s skills as an Urushi lacquer master and are the defining features of this watch. The most prominent one is the rich, deep black dial painted the Urushi lacquer process. This is complemented by the Byakudan-nuri technique that is applied to the day and date subdials. Historically, the complexity of this technique made it so that it was used exclusively for places and objects of high status (which includes shrines, temples, and the Shogun’s armor). We also see the golden maki-e on the power reserve indicator. Fine gilt powder is applied to the urushi dial to create a rich golden color that shimmers in the light, which here represents the crescent moon. As mentioned earlier, the lacquer and maki-e are applied by hand by Isshu Tamura, an Urushi tokinowaza (Japanese lacquer master) in Kanazawa. When he makes the standard Urushi dials (seen on SARW013, SARD011, and SARX029), only 15 are made per day. Inside, the watch has a 6R27 movement. The seconds hand beats at 28,800 BPH (8 per second) and has been accurate to 6 seconds per day since I bought it last spring. The 6R27 is a derivative of the famed 6R15, and has proven to be just as robust, if not better. The watch has spent almost all of its time as a safe queen. I have tried this on only two times and the back protective sticker is still there. There is still just under two years of warranty left for US based customers. For this watch, the first year was a worldwide warranty and the next two are US only. This watch was purchased by the first owner on March 15, 2019 (I am the second). The strap and clasp are awesome as well. The strap is soft yet structured and has an alligator like look. The Seiko branded deployant clasp goes a long way to preserving the strap, and I always recommend putting one on every leather strap possible. I’m looking for $1730 net (lowest total price I can find online, and this is the only used model confirmed to still have a warranty). Now, overnight shipping is FREE to the CONUS. Unfortunately, I am not entertaining watch trades at this time. However, I am looking to acquire these non-watch related items: My preferred payment methods are Paypal and Zelle. If you have enough feedback, I can go Goods & Services with the buyer covering the 3% in fees (divide price by 0.97). I have plenty of feedback as a seller and buyer, so feel free to check it out. If you have questions, please let me know! Thanks for looking! P.S – Here’s some technical info: Diameter: 40.5mm - Thickness: 13.2 mm - Power reserve: 45 hours - Accuracy: +25/-15 sec/day
