Seiko in the turn of the Millennium had produced a series of special wrist watches named “Seiko Spirit” – the Samurai Spirit.
The watch shown here was produced in mid 2000s. A mechanically powered automatic watch (calibre 6R15) with fine calibrations on the inside rim coupled with Arobic numbers hour markers.

The side of watch lugs was polished and cut in the shape of a Samurai sword blade; very traditional Japanese sense of pride for its high qaulity workmanship just like making a Samurai sword.  This is the begining of adopting such design cue for subsequent premium Seiko watch models.
