Seiko Presage welcomes a new series that captures the vintage feel of a Seiko milestone watch combined with the traditional watchmaking skills for which the Presage collection is renowned.
The new Seiko Presage "Style60's" series design takes its inspiration from the Crown Chronograph introduced in 1964. With contemporary earth tone colors, the watches combine the vintage design of the 1964 creation with contemporary elements to create a series with a retro feel perfect for modern times.
The Crown Chronograph was Seiko's and Japan's first wristwatch equipped with a stopwatch function. The watch had several new revolutionary functions and marked the beginning of Seiko's chronograph wristwatch manufacturing.

The new series incorporates the Crown Chronograph's characteristic box-shaped glass, faceted indexes, and sharp hand designs. The inner circular area of the dial and the outer area with indexes are applied different finishing techniques, creating enhanced legibility, and a warm vintage feel with varying expressions depending on the angle of view.
The gently rounded case is slightly slanted inward to ensure comfort on the wrist.
The lugs are carefully polished to a mirror finish giving the watches a sharpness to their overall calm and gentle appearance, creating the perfect balance of modern and vintage.
The new series offers watches with dials in various colors; black, brown, ivory, and earth tones colors of blue and green reminiscent of the 60’s trends.

For the first time, Seiko Presage offers new creations with nylon straps that enhance the 60’s style. The two watches presented with nylon straps have black and brown dials that perfectly capture the Style60's feel.
While the original Crown Chronograph did not incorporate a date window,
the series offers new creations with a calendar function.
