Powered with a high quality, reliable movement, Minase displays great traditional crafts on its hand-made dials, but also on every single steel part, hand-polished with the rare Sallaz technique.
Created by renowned designer Hirokuni Yamamoto, this remarkable collaboration showcases a shift from the brand’s traditional edgy and linear designs.
Uruga modern dials
Minase takes inspiration in the nature around her for all aspects of this new timepiece. The subtle horizontal embossed gradation pattern of the dial is made of an endless array of interlacing lines symbolizing infinity. Those motives are finished with Japanese traditional lacquer and the result transports us to the shores of the beautiful Minase River in Japan.
Based on ETA 2892 (42mm) and ETA 2671 (31mm) ébauches, this high-end execution displays hand-finished surfaces with perlage, blue screws, bridges with diamond polished bevels and a main plate/bridges in black or.
The brand’s drill head logo is displayed on the rotor. It is assembled with MPS lubrication-free bearings and with its ETACHRON regular system, this is a very high precision, TOP range execution.

Uruga bracelets are uniquely constructed. No exterior screws or pins are visible when the watch is worn thanks to the use of tiny screws on the underside of each bracelet link.
The bracelets are further enhanced by the great Sallaz polishing technique. A technique of polishing the steel by hand, piece after piece requiring an impressive level of skills and dexterity.
