Hitori Yoshino Snowdrift

"The "Yoshino" watches are significantly inspired by the cherry blossoms of Mount Yoshinoyama (吉野山, Yoshino-yama), located in the town and district of Yoshino itself, in Nara prefecture. Fame for having more than 30,000 sakura flowering cherry trees, it has inspired ancestry Japanese wake poetry and folk songs for centuries, including a Kokinshū waka in the 10th-century poetry compilation Kokin Wakashū ("Collection of Japanese Poems of Ancient and Modern Times"). And now, the religious mountain continues its magic, influencing Hitori with a new collection that distilled its "mystical" charm and enchantress "sakura".

This imminent Yoshino collection grabs the spotlight with its incredible nostalgic timepieces that redefine the classic style uniquely to the land of the rising sun—made proudly in Asia to complete the savoir fairé. This dazzling bezel-less watch case imbues a particular architectural form, which prominently reflects the "Grammar Of Design" ethos established by Seiko's designer Mr Taro Tanaka-san. The oriental case design is balanced with a beautiful nature-inspired textured dial that instils the "sakura" blossom colour hue. Upon the designers' imaginations in Hitori, they wondered, “Imagine the snow season in Yoshino. Let us splash some snowy white colour which based off our coveted Habuka 39, onto the Yoshino "sakura" dial.” Thus, with this brave decision, we welcome Yoshino Snowdrift White."
