Seiko Astron Kintaro Hattori Special Limited Edition honors the memory of Seiko founder Kintaro Hattor
Baselworld 2013 sees a further expansion of the Seiko Astron GPS Sola collection and the launch of a very special edition that commemorates 100 years of Seiko watchmaking and honors the memory of Seiko founder Kintaro Hattori and his vision that Seiko should always be one step ahead of the rest. There could be no better testament to the enduring power of Kintaro’s vision than Astron, a watch of which he would be proud. Never before in Seiko’s history has a watch carried Kintaro’s name, nor the six words that define his vision, one step ahead of the rest.
In its innovation and its refinement, it symbolizes everything that Seiko believes in. The case is made of high-intensity titanium with black hard coating, its crown is tipped with onyx, the crystal is coated in Seiko’s proprietary anti-reflective finish and it is offered with a crocodile strap and an additional titanium bracelet. The case back evokes the century old tradition of Seiko’s watchmaking, with the original S mark engraving. This extraordinary watch is offered in a limited edition of 5,000. It will be launched simultaneously all over the world in September 2013.
