Seiko Presage Style60’s – The Japanese brand welcomes a new series that captures the vintage feel of a Seiko milestone watch combined with the traditional watchmaking skills for which the Presage collection is renowned.

The new Seiko Presage “Style60’s” series design takes its inspiration from the Crown Chronograph introduced in 1964. With contemporary earth tone colors, the watches combine the vintage design of the 1964 creation with contemporary elements to create a series with a retro feel perfect for modern times.

The Seiko Crown Chronograph was Seiko’s and Japan’s first wristwatch equipped with a stopwatch function. The watch had several new revolutionary functions and marked the beginning of Seiko’s chronograph wristwatch manufacturing.

The new series incorporates the Seiko Crown Chronograph’s characteristic box-shaped glass, faceted indexes, and sharply shaped hand designs. The overall soft feel of the watches creates a vintage 60s look.

The inner circular area of the dial and the outer area with indexes are applied different finishing techniques, creating enhanced legibility, and a warm vintage feel with varying expressions depending on the angle of view.
