Swiss luxury watchmaker Chopard introduced sole compilation of luxury watches called XP Urushi. Kiichiro Masumura, a Japanese artiste, measured to be a “Living National Treasure” by his nation, has supervised the conception of nine sole dials based on Urushi techniques. Urushi is the inherited Japanese art of lacquering. The varnish is completed from the sap of the Urushi hierarchy a tree which is typically established in Japan and China.

Chopard presents a compilation of 9 dissimilar dials strictly supervised by Kiichiro Masumura and designed, tinted and decorated with gold powder by the Yamada Heiando Company and bureaucrat dealer to the Emperor of Japan. These works symbolize the 5 (wood, fire, earth, metal and water) basic rudiments of the cosmos according to the very old philosophy of Chinese natural science. The last 3 dials feature a peacock, the jungle and red fish.

Living National Treasures of Japan

Living National Treasure (Ningen Kokuhō) is a Japanese popular term for those individuals certified as Preservers of Important Intangible Cultural Properties (Jūyō Mukei Bunkazai Hojisha) by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology as based on Japan’s Law for the Protection of Cultural Properties (Bunkazai Hogōhō). The term „Living National Treasure“ is not formally mentioned in the law, but is an informal term referencing the cultural properties designated as the National Treasures of Japan.

Living National Treasure is a term for those designated as keepers of important intangible cultural properties. Under the 1950 Law for Protection of Cultural Properties, intangible cultural properties are defined as:

  • dramatic
  • musical
  • artistic
  • and other intangible cultural artifacts

of high value in terms of Japanese history or art. Those intangible cultural properties of especial importance can be designated as „Important Intangible Cultural Properties“ by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

In other words, intangible cultural properties are certain artistic skills. Those individuals or groups who have attained high levels of mastery in those certain skills can be designated as preservers of them by the Japanese government for the purpose of ensuring their continuation.
