Seiko Celebrates Legendary Japanese Bar Starbar with Two Limited Edition Watches

A design that symbolizes ripples spreading and shimmering on the surface of a cocktail

Two new models join the STAR BAR series. The watches are inspired by the original cocktails of one of the world's leading bartenders, Mr. Hisashi Kishi, and evoke the exuberant city of Tokyo.

The first bartender to be awarded the "Contemporary Master Craftsman" award, STAR BAR owner Hisashi Kishi created these original cocktails, which are reminiscent of the traditional yet vibrant Tokyo cityscape.

While one is light and bright and the other has a crimson hue, depicting different visual dimensions of the city, each drink is tied together with bitters and a citrus peel.

Hisashi Kishi,

the head bartender of STAR BAR
in Tokyo’s Ginza district and a past winner of
the International Bar Association World Championships.

Equipped with the new caliber 4R72, each of the new models has a skeletonized dial design, which symbolizes ripples spreading out across the surface. These ripples extend from the watch's heart, the balance wheel.

The dials of the STAR BAR limited-edition models have a shape that allows a clear view of the jewels and the balance wheel. Diamond cuts are applied throughout the dial. Legibility is ensured thanks to the distinctive hands and markers.

The see-through case back of the watch is marked with the words “Limited Edition” and the serial number, and it also allows the wearer to view the automatic mechanical movement working.
