Seiko Presage “Style 60’s” series is enriched with six new watches, whose design proposes a contemporary reinterpretation of the 1964 Crown Chronograph, which inspired them.
New timepieces capture the vintage atmosphere of the historic Seiko model, considered a milestone in the history of the Manufacture, and combine it with modern elements to create a line with an absolutely contemporary retro touch (The Crown Chronograph was the first wristwatch by Seiko and around Japan equipped with a chronometer function).
All six watches feature the distinctive “box-shaped” glass of the Crown Chronograph, faceted indexes and sharp-shaped hands.
The case with a tapered silhouette is slightly tilted down to ensure better comfort on the wrist. The polished handles add brightness to the whole, in a perfect balance between modern and vintage.
References SSA447J1, SSA449J1 and SSA451J1 propose a dial with a small silver counter at 6 o’clock for the date indication.
Watches, available with a cream, dark green or grey-blue dial, feature a 40.8 mm stainless steel case framed by a steel bezel with black IP treatment.
Waterproof up to 5 bar, the timepieces are completed with the stainless steel bracelet (SSA447J1 and SSA449J1) closed by a triple folding buckle with release button, or the brown leather strap (SSA451J1).
All three watches are powered by the self-winding calibre 4R57, which guarantees a power reserve of 41 hours and is visible from the transparent screw case back.
The SSA453J1 watch, also with a 40.8 mm diameter stainless steel case, features a window at 9 o’clock on the “open heart” dial, allowing you to observe the balance when the watch is on the wrist, while the second counter at 11 o’clock serves as a 24-hour indicator.
The blue dial is framed by the steel bezel with IP treatment of the same color.
Great Waterproof up to 5 bar and powered by the calibre 4R39 automatic with a power reserve of 41 hours visible from the transparent screw case back, the timepiece offers a beige synthetic leather strap with a velvety suede texture.
New Presage Style 60’s series is completed by the SRPH93J1 and SRPH95J1 models, which share the 40.8 mm diameter stainless steel case and the water resistance up to 5 bar.
I really liket these watches offer a date on the dial at 3 o’clock and are available in two versions.

The other with black dial, case with black IP treatment and black leather strap (SRPH95J1).
