Japanese armor /
the black-lacquered armor with 5 pieced cuirass used by Masamune DATE


黒漆五枚胴具足

伊達政宗公の装備は、シンプルな甲冑を好まれたと言われ、自身の美意識が表れており重厚かつ華麗な“伊達”な文化を代表しています。

Date Masamune's equipment is said to have favored simple armor, showing his own aesthetic sense and representing a profound and splendid "Date" culture.

甲冑パーツ/

甲冑飾りで、小こざね・札かたびらなどに使われる「縅(おどし)」を時計のベルト部分の装飾に使用。兜のしころ・大袖・草摺・胴の部材にも用いられる基本の組み合わせ「下段の板が手前」を採用。

強度と美しさを体現した一本一本の「威し」をご堪能ください。

尾錠/

一般的な量産品プレス工法では作れない甲冑時計仕様の形状に拘り、部品一つ一つをステンレスの塊から削り出して制作。

 

Armor parts/

As an armor decoration, "Odoshi", which is used for small kneading, bills, etc., is used to decorate the belt part of the watch. The basic combination "lower board is in front", which is also used for helmet rollers, large sleeves, grass slides, and body members, is adopted.

Please enjoy each and every "dignity" that embodies strength and beauty.

Buckle/

We are particular about the shape of the armor watch specifications that cannot be made by the general mass-produced press method, and each part is carved out of a stainless steel block.

秒針/

兜のシンボル三日月を秒針に採用し、

わかりやすく伊達政宗公らしさを表現。

駆動方式:日本製クオーツセイコームーブメント(time module社)秒針を動かすために、一般のクォーツムーブメントの約4倍ものトルクを発生させる機構の特殊なムーブメントを使用。

 

文字盤/

黒を基調とし、瑞巌寺の伊達政宗木像の鎧に配された三引両紋を、斜面の鎖をイメージした凹凸とともに、艶のある立体感で表現。六十二間の筋兜、仙台藩開府の石高62万石から由来し、慶長遣欧使節派遣に尽力したことをオマージュするローマ数字で数字の2時と6時を際立たせました。正面に対し、アシンメトリーに見える独眼竜の眼帯を連想させる文字盤。

Second hand/

Adopting the helmet symbol crescent on the second hand,Expressing the uniqueness of Date Masamune symbol.

Movement:

Quartz Seiko movement made in Japan (time module). To move the second hand, a special movement with a mechanism that generates about four times as much torque as a general quartz movement is used.

 

Dial/

Based on black, the Mitsuhiki Ryomon, which is placed on the armor of Date Masamune's wooden statue at Zuiganji Temple, is expressed with a glossy three-dimensional effect, along with unevenness that resembles a chain on a slope.

I used Roman numerals to highlight 2 and 6 o'clock. The reason is derived from the 62-year-old muscle helmet,  the number of yield of Sendai clan 620,000, and it is a homage to the fact that he made an effort to dispatch the Japanese envoy to Europe in the Keicho era to Europe. A dial reminiscent of the eyepatch of a monocular dragon that looks asymmetric to the front. I put an anecdote of history  in the design.

ベゼル/

六十二間筋兜からインスパイアされたケース。耐食性、低温高温における性質が優れている高耐食ステンレススチールを使用し、凹凸の2種の表面加工のコントラストを美しく仕上げる磨きにこだわりました。特に凸部を鏡面に仕上げる際の研磨工程では、凸の形状がそれぞれバラつかない様に一定の力加減を保ったまま、熟練者による手作業で丁寧に磨き上げています。

 

竜頭/

レーザー刻印が鮮明に浮き上がるオリジナル竜頭です。

 

防 水/

3気圧防水(甲冑パーツ除く)。日常生活での汗や洗顔のときの水滴、雨などに耐えられる防水機能を備えています。但し、水仕事、水上スポーツ、素潜り(スキンダイビング)、潜水には使用しないで下さい。また、水圧の変化が激しい条件では使用をお避けください。

Besel /A case inspired by the 62-story helmet. Using highly corrosion-resistant stainless steel, which has excellent corrosion resistance and properties at low and high temperatures, we have adopted a polish that beautifully finishes the contrast between the two types of uneven surface processing. Especially in the polishing process when finishing the convex part to a mirror surface, a skilled craftsman carefully polishes it by hand while maintaining a certain amount of force so that the convex shape does not vary.

 

Crown/An original crown with a laser engraving that clearly stands out.

 

Waterproof/Water resistant to 3 bar (excluding armor parts). It has a waterproof function that can withstand sweat in daily life, water droplets when washing your face, and rain. However, please do not use it for water work, water sports, diving (skin diving), and diving. Also, avoid using it under conditions where the water pressure changes drastically.

隠し鋲/

威(おどし)パーツの裏には隠し鋲。機能としてパーツを装着させながらも、見えない部分にも細工を施す。牛革と甲冑パーツとの二重ベルトは相性も良く、黄糸でひと針ひと針牛手で縫い上げています。牛革ベルトは時計ケースのデザインに合わせ、剣先側の抜型を新規に起こして製作。

Hidden tack

Hidden studs on the back of the armor parts. While attaching parts as a function, work is also done on invisible parts. The double belt of cowhide and armor parts goes well with each other, and is sewn with yellow thread one by one by hand. The cowhide belt is made by newly raising the die on the sword tip side according to the design of the watch case.

裏面/

裏面刻印、シリアルナンバー。

江戸甲冑の伝統を受け継ぐ、弊社ブランド忠保の伝統紋。そして、ひとつひとつ刻印されすシリアルナンバーは自分だけの一本になり、それはかつて武士が神仏の加護を求め、祈りを込めて刀身に彫刻を加えた行為を模しています。鏡面磨きが刻印を際立たせます。

 

Back side/

Engraved on the back, serial number.

The traditional crest of our brand Tadayasu which inherits the tradition of Edo armor. And the serial number engraved one by one is unique to you, which imitates the act of a samurai who once sought the blessing of the gods and Buddha and prayed to engrave the blade. Mirror polishing makes the engraving stand out.
