From OCEANUS “Manta”, this model was developed and manufactured with the cooperation of Yutaro Shimode, a traditional craftsman in Kyoto. Combining OCEANUS blue and maki-e, we created an image of a scene where water falls from a waterfall and splashes, expressing the dynamism of water. The sapphire glass of the bezel is vapor-deposited with a gradation of blue to black, and a platinum “sparkling gradation drawing Takimon” is drawn. All are handmade by Mr. Shimode, so no two are the same. The dial uses a unique technique inspired by the mother-of-pearl (raden) to express the scene of water falling down while shining brightly. In terms of functions, it is equipped with standard radio wave reception function, smartphone link function, world time compatible function, etc. These high-performance functions are housed in a slim case with a thickness of 9.3 mm, and a thin and beautiful form has been achieved. High-quality OCEANUS Manta that combines functionality and design.
