Seiko AirPro: The Inflatable Watch

I was in New York for a conference last week, and I ran into a girl wearing a big, dorky (in a cool way), very intriguing watch which turned out to be a Seiko AirPro. I'd never seen one before, and when she told me she'd bought it in Japan,...

Seiko’s New Solar Ignition Diver Watch

This one isn't atomic like the Seiko Ignition Takuma Sato, but it is a solar Ignition, and it is most definitely a beautiful watch. Features include: Titanium case and bracelet. Seiko's own "Hardlex" crystal (used in many of Seiko's divers because it is especially hard). Solar-powered with a 6-month reserve...

Seiko Goes Solar and Atomic with the Seiko Ignition Takuma Sato

The Seiko Ignition Takuma Sato is an unusual watch in several respects. First, Seiko is not very well known for their solar watches. Kinetic, Spring Drive, and even automatic, yes, but you don't find a lot of solar powered Seikos out there. And you find even fewer atomic Seikos. Seiko...

The Seiko Marinemaster GMT Spring Drive (Ref SBDB001)

Seiko continues to build amazing watches on top of their innovative new Spring Drive system. One of the latest is the Seiko Marinemaster GMT. I almost posted nothing but a picture of this watch because I think the mere sight of it says it all: it is big, beautiful, durable,...

The New Seiko Milemarker

The new Seiko Milemarker is an interesting combination of modern and classic technologies. On the modern side, the Milemarker has a 10 year battery, perpetual calendar, and an extremely accurate quartz movement which deviates less than 20 seconds per year (yes, that's per year, not per month). The more classic...

The Seiko Spring Drive Explained

In 1969, Seiko introduced one of the most disruptive technologies in the history of watchmaking: the quartz movement. Quartz movements are more accurate than automatic or mechanical movements, generally less temperamental, and are far cheaper to produce. Since then, the Japanese watchmaker has continued to innovate and help the industry...

Seiko Introduces the First E-paper Watch

Getting caught up on my gadget news this morning, I noticed that my pals over at Gizmodo got the scoop on a new E-paper watch that Seiko exhibited at Baselworld 2005. It actually looks more like a bracelet than a watch, but since it tells the time, I guess that...

The New Seiko Sportura Collection (SLQ017, SNL015, SNJ005, SNA451)

If you're looking for a moderately priced, high quality, very cool, and totally unique looking watch to surprise someone with this holiday season (or even to surprise yourself with), you might want to check out something from Seiko's new Sportura collection. The inspiration for the Seiko Sportura design was high...

Seiko Sportura SLQ017

Unfortunately, I don't own this watch, and even more unfortunately, it's likely I never will. There were only 1,500 made world-wide, and only 400 of them found their way to the US. It's a shame because I think this is an absolutely fantastic looking timepiece, and I've always had a...
