The Crown Chronograph – Japan’s first wristwatch with a stopwatch function.

Seiko was in charge of making the official watch for the first international sports event held in Japan in 1964, which triggered the development of a watch with a stopwatch function. The Crown Chronograph was a simple chronograph based on the Crown, a manual winding mechanical watch. Although a one-push chronograph, the use of a pillar wheel allows reliable control of the stopwatch. It is to this day considered a legendary timepiece that exudes Seiko’s uncompromising manufacturing ability. Not only in its function but also with its design and the high legibility, the watch is a standard to tell the time.

The clearly defined Arabic numerals applied to the narrow bezel and the fine minute gradations highlighted on the dial, has been reproduced throughout. The case has an inwardly tilted shape so that it rests securely on the wrist, which increases stability.
