From Shinto to Shibuya, the P1B/03 Off-Series is a journey through Japan

Fan favorite, P-Series returns with a celebration to the energy, creativity, and traditions of the island nation.

The P1B/03 embraces the duality of Japan, a nation that reveres tradition while forging new technologies, a culture that revels in the venerated as much as it does the future.

This fantastically split personality can be found on the strap of the P1B/03 with the iconic Mt. Fuji represented in a continuous wave, while the life-affirming “Seize the Day” in embossed in traditional Japanese script.

Mirroring the porcelain used in ancient tea ceremonies the latest SEVENFRIDAY offering manages to capture the serenity of these time honored occasions in the white ceramic bezel that encompasses a multi-level interface of rhodium and transparent discs.

This is a watch that’s at home in the tranquil gardens of a Shinto shrine and in the visually stimulating world of a Manga Comic Con.

Its cherry wood animation ring is a nod to the release date during the world famous Cherry Blossom Festival on 16th of March.

In keeping with the juxtaposition of the traditional and the novel, the venerable and the hyper-present, the P1B/03 is at home in the Shibuya district of Tokyo.

The neighborhood is renowned for its pulsating nightlife, towering screens, busy cafes featuring cats, owls, or hedgehogs, and frequented by Harajuku girls bedecked in the most audacious Cosplay outfits.

A healthy dose of respect for the customs of a distant age coupled with manic creative energy exploding from every direction, that’s #liveSEVENFRIDAY!
