What is the Crown Chronograph? First released in 1964, the Seiko Crown Chronograph was Japan's first wristwatch that featured a stopwatch function. It was developed for the first international sports event that was held in Japan. The 2020 Seiko Presage Prestige (a collection that inherited the Japanese brand's watchmaking tradition) is a timepiece that pays homage to the original. Featuring the original design of the 1964 Crown Chronograph, the 2020 edition houses a distinctive dial with defined Arabic numerals, narrow bezel with fine minute graduations and an inward titled case that ensures a secure fit on the wrist. The collection is available in three dial options; black, white and green.
The 48mm stainless-steel case has a water resistance of 10 bars and houses the Caliber 6R35 movement that clocks in a power reserve of 70 hours. The caseback holds the letter “Limited Edition” and the serial number 0001/1964-1964/1964 which is a proof of the limited edition.
Limited to just 1964 pieces each (a testament to the year the Crown Chronograph was released), the 2020 Seiko Presage Prestige Limited Edition is available in a stainless-steel bracelet and offered in a special watch box.
