Drawing inspiration from ‘Akebono’, a Japanese term for the twilight moment where the sunrise meets the sky, the sapphire blue and rose gold tones of the ‘Akebono’ Sharp Edged emulate a dawn sky.

The three-dimensional dial features a traditional Japanese hemp leaf pattern known as Asanoha, a widely renowned Japanese symbol of endurance, resilience and prosperity.
