Japanese watch major, Seiko, has launched a new sports watch, Seiko 5 Sports focusing on reliability, durability, performance and value.
It will be available from September 2019 at around Rs 22,000.
The Seiko 5 watch would have five key attributes; an automatic movement, a day-date display at the three o’clock position, water resistance, a recessed crown at the four o’clock position and a case and bracelet built for durability.
Taken together and in combination with the then new mainspring and shock resistance system, these features gave Seiko 5 its distinctive appearance and its strength.
In addition to the fundamental values of Seiko 5, Seiko 5 Sports offered enhanced water resistance, a strengthened crystal and luminous hands and hour markers. Throughout the next decades, Seiko 5 Sports found great international favor as a ‘’go-anywhere’’ watch that offered a unique look and extraordinary value.
The new Seiko 5 Sports has Caliber 4R36, with 24 jewels, optional manual winding, a 41 hour power reserve and a hacking second hand.
There are no fewer than 27 different executions, each in one of five styles: Sports, Suits, Specialist, Street and Sense. All have new dials with three-dimensional hour markers and the collection embraces a wide range of straps and bracelets. The steel mesh and silicone/leather hybrids have been incorporated for the first time in Seiko 5 Sports
Niladri Mazumdar, President and COO of Seiko Watch India Private Limited, said, “The evolution of Seiko 5 is brilliantly captured in this new contemporary collection of Seiko 5 Sports. Aesthetically designed and created for today’s passionate individual, Seiko 5 Sports is an instrument of perfection and precision that can be worn for any occasion.”
