Seiko Presage Style 60s Series takes its inspiration from the Seiko original “Crown Chronograph” introduced in 1964. While these modern versions combine the vintage feel of the 1964 version with modern updates, the new watches are not in-fact chronographs but create a timeless look that will be always be comfortably in-style. Outside components show the vintage Crown Chronograph’s boxed crystal, faceted indexes, and dauphine hands, while inside the case is the Seiko 4R35 automatic winding mechanical movement ticking away at 21,600 vph with a 41-hour power reserve. A total of seven variations exists, and all are crafted in stainless steel and 40.8mm in diameter. One version has the “heartbeat” cut-out dial highlighting the balance wheel and escapement ($525), the other has a full coverage dial ($575). Lumibrite is applied in all variations.
