Seiko Arctura Perpetual Calendar

       The best-known Japanese watch-making brand in the world Seiko traces its roots to the second half of the 19th century, when a visionary man of his time, Kintaro Hattori created his small shop oriented towards selling jewelry and watches.

       Through just one decade of existence, Hattori’s small shop, developed its own clock’s manufacture, which produced timepieces under the Seikosha trademark, a Japanese name, related to words such as minute, exquisite and success. However, the name Seiko started to be used during the 1920s, when the brand experienced a rapid growth, entering in the watch-making history as the first brand which produced an outer-space suitable timepiece, and which patented the very first quartz chronograph in the world.

       Through the years, the brand never ceased to impress its enthusiast fans, with innovative timepieces, defined by fresh sporty design, unmatched functionality and impeccable Japanese quality.

       At BaselWorld 2010, the brand brought a couple new additions to its highly appreciated Seiko Arctura Watch Line, such as the sophisticated new Seiko Arctura Perpetual Calendar watch we are going to present to you in the following article.

       Especially created to meet the needs of a contemporary gentleman, with an active life-style, the remarkable new Seiko Arctura Perpetual Calendar watch features a powerfully masculine case, performed in stainless steel, which demonstrates a nice combination of brushed and polished surfaces. The bold architecture of the case incorporates a glare-proof sapphire crystal, a screwed down case-back, and screw down crown, and ensures a remarkable 100-meters water resistance.

       Furthermore, the timepiece features a classy dial, available in black or silver, fitted with applied triangular hour indices and sward-shaped hours and minute’s hands, with central luminescent inserts for optimal time-legibility. Furthermore, the timepiece features a perpetual calendar complication, displayed through two, day and date sub-dials, located at 4, respectively 6 o’clock, a double date aperture located beneath the 12 o’clock position and it also provides a 24 hours alarm function.

       Animated by a high-quality kinetic movement, charged by the watch’s owner’s moves, the remarkable Seiko Arctura Perpetual Calendar watch is secured to the wrist with a masculine steel bracelet and it will be available for an approximate price tag around $500.00.
