The name Daizoh Makihara might not be familiar in a world filled with fancy Patek Philippes and Audemars Piguets, but if you're looking for something a bit more special, this stunning timepiece will certainly do the trick. Makihara designed the dial using traditional Edo-kiriko techniques to fashion an intricate crystal dial, a process that takes up an entire day's work to complete. The watch also features a cherry blossom theme that is featured throughout the Unitas movement and crown and the 42mm case is crafted from 18k pink gold. 

The watch will be limited to eight pieces and each one will take up to eight months to complete.
