Hands-On – Seiko Presage 60th Anniversary Chronograph, with Enamel and Urushi Lacquer dials (live photos & price)
60 years ago, in 1956, Seiko produced their first automatic watch – of course with an in-house produced movement. However, the history of the brand goes back to much older times, as the first wristwatch manufactured by the well-respected Japanese brand was the 1913 Laurel (which also happens to be the first Japanese wristwatch). Later, in 1969, Seiko produced their first automatic chronograph (which was also one of the very first of its kind). This year, at Baselworld 2016, it is a tribute to all these great timepieces that Seiko unveiled: the limited edition Seiko Presage 60th Anniversary Chronograph. And it is full of very good news: in-house, automatic, column-wheel chronograph with fire enamel or urushi lacquer dial inspired by the Laurel, for less than 3,000 Euros… and for once it available all around the globe.
