What is Maki-e?

Maki-e (sprinkled picture in Japanese) is one of Japanese Traditional Artworks which is coated with Urushi (Japanese Lacquer) and sprinkled with gold and/or silver powder and mother-of-pearl as decoration using a tube or a brush.
The technique was developed mainly in the Heian period (794–1185) and blossomed in the Edo period (1603–1868). 
Maki-e artworks were initially designed as household items for court nobles; they soon gained more popularity and were adopted by Japanese Royal Families and Samurai military leaders as a symbol of power. 
The Maki-e Watch applies such Maki-e art crafts technique for the watch dial part as decoration.
