Edo Kiriko expresses the transition of the incoming light.
This newest OCEANUS Manta adopts a sapphire crystal bezel to acheive this effect.
From OCEANUS Manta, which continues to pursue high-quality finishes and thin and beautiful forms, comes a model with the theme of Japanese traditional "Edo Kiriko". The bezel made of sapphire is cut by Edo Kiriko craftsman, Toru Horiguchi, to express the beauty of light created by delicate patterns. It is the birth of a new elegant style that incorporates the light itself into the design.

Hideishi III, Toru Horiguchi
Born in Tokyo in 1976, he studied Edo Kiriko under Hideishi II (Tomio Suda, an intangible cultural property in Koto Ward). In 2008, Horiguchi Kiriko Co., Ltd. was founded as Hideishi III. is certified as a Japanese traditional craftsman (Edo Kiriko).
Using a bezel with a sapphire crystal ring set on a titanium pedestal, we carved 40 pieces of Edo Kiriko's traditional technique "Sen-suji". By shifting the center point of the radial pattern, light enters from an angle and creates a beautiful shadow. The coloring is a newly developed blue-black vapor deposition that expresses the transition of light.
The sapphire crystal ring is polished and cut from the back side using the Edo Kiriko technique. By applying silver vapor deposition on the cut surface and peeling it off once, coloring remains only on the cutting line. In addition, the newly developed blue-black vapor deposition that enhances the saturation of blue creates an emotional shade with a faint purple color in the gradation. As a finishing touch, silver vapor deposition is applied to the entire back surface to enhance color development.
The dial is finished with a highly colored black mirror to accentuate the beauty of the bezel. In addition, the in-dial is vapor-filmed in blue, and the in-dial ring (9 o'clock side) is finished in two-tone blue and black, creating a face design that matches the coloring of the bezel. In addition, city codes are engraved on the outer circumference of the dial to achieve both design and functionality without distracting from the beauty of the bezel.
The titanium case that supports the sapphire crystal ring uses titanium carbide treatment and rough polishing for the base part, resulting in a beautiful color and a carefully polished mirror surface with high smoothness. Furthermore, by applying gray IP to the convex part of the inner frame of the bezel, it creates a visual effect that makes the face look bigger.
A non-transparent dial has been mounted by using a solar cell with high light-receiving efficiency and enabling power generation only in the in-dial area. Doing so allows for frees up more space on the dial for intricate design..
Slim case, beauty that fits on your arm
By downsizing the parts and mounting on a single-sided high-density board, we have realized a thin case of 9.3 mm while mounting Bluetooth® and radio wave solar.
