Seiko Presage Automatic Chronograph enamel dial

Seiko celebrates the anniversary of its first mechanical watch by unveiling an automatic chronograph with enamel dial.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of its first automatic watch, Seiko is focusing its efforts on the Presage, a collection of 60 models all driven by mechanical movements. The Presage line, hitherto rarely seen outside the domestic Japanese market but now available worldwide, is noted for its extremely high quality finishes. Among the many new models now available, one in particular is likely to attract the attention of watch enthusiasts: the reference SRQ019. Shortlisted in the “Petite Aiguille” category of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, the timepiece combines Seiko’s technical expertise with traditional Japanese craftsmanship.

This steel 42 mm chronograph is driven by the automatic 8R48 calibre, one of the most advanced in the Presage range, with a vertical clutch, column wheel and a three-pointed hammer to ensure perfect synchronisation of the hands’ return to zero. A yellow gold rotor is revealed through the sapphire caseback. This anniversary edition borrows the aesthetic codes of the Laurel, Seiko’s first ever wristwatch, released in 1913. The Presage Chronograph also has a lustrous pure white grand feu enamel dial, made by highly qualified master craftsmen whose skills have been honed in the purest Japanese tradition.

The watch is available in a limited edition of 1000, and its price of 2,500 euros represents astonishing value for a watch of such outstanding quality.
