Seiko Sportura Automatic Chronograph

       An impressive success story, depicted by the brand’s official website as A Journey in Time: the Remarkable Story of Seiko, the brand bearing this name, is powerful Japanese watch-making powerhouse, created in the second half of the 19th century, by an enthusiast watchmaker, Kintaro Hattori. A visionary man of this time, Hattori created in 1881 his own jewelry and watches store, and after 11 years, his small business grew into a genuine watch-manufacture, which produced timepieces under the name Seikosha, a Japanese word which stands for minute, success or exquisite.

       However, although the brand’s story goes back to the 19th century, it wasn’t until the late 1920s that the very first timepiece under the Seiko trademark was produced. Ever since, the brand rapidly grew into one of the most respected members of today fine watch-making industry.

       Surely, a true watch-connoisseur will know that Seiko is the very first watch-making brand in the world, which patented and produced, the quartz chronograph movement, and that created the very first wristwatch capable of withstanding to the challenging outer space conditions.


       Introduced at Baselworld 2010, the brand’s Sportura Watch Line comprises remarkable timepieces profoundly linked with the adrenalin-inflicting world of motor sports, such as the new Sportura Automatic Chronograph Mens Watch we are going to present to you in the following article.

       The remarkable timepiece feature a powerfully masculine stainless steel case, which demonstrates a sporty combination of brushed and polished surfaces and, which incorporates a round bezel with black hard coating, fitted with a tachymeter scale. Furthermore, the sophisticated architecture of the case incorporates black chronograph push-pieces with vibrant orange accents, a screwed down crown, as well as a glare-proof sapphire crystal and an exhibition case-back, and ensures a good 100-meters water resistance.

       The watch features a sporty black dial completed with vibrant orange accents, steel skeleton hours and minutes’ hands, with luminescent inserts, and bold hour indices. Furthermore, the watch features three chronograph counters, for 60-seconds, 12-hours and 30-minutes, located at 3, 6, respectively 9 o’clock positions, meanwhile, at 4:30 there is a large date aperture.

       At the heart of the Seiko Automatic Chronograph beats a high-precision in-house movement, the Caliber 8R28 which confers impeccable timekeeping accuracy and reliability. Moreover, a limited edition of 1000 pieces, the powerful Seiko Automatic Chronograph embraces the wrist with a stylish masculine bracelet, and it will cost somewhere around $3,350.00.
