Seiko Introduces the Spring Drive Chronograph

Seiko Spring Drive Chronograph

We previously wrote about Seiko’s innovative
Spring Drive watches,
and I’m personally a big fan of their
Marinemaster Spring Drive diver.
At the annual Baselworld conference, Seiko announced the long-awaited
Spring Drive chronograph. Unfortunately, it’s a 300-piece limited edition, with an exclusive price of
€5,500 (about $7,500).

There’s a lot to like about the Seiko Spring Drive Chronograph and its design,

  • Glide motion movement, meaning all hands move completely smoothly, not in “ticks”.
  • Titanium case and bracelet.
  • GMT (24-hour) hand.
  • 12-hour chronograph (the only glide motion chronograph in the world).
  • 72-hour power reserve indicator.
  • Date.
  • See-through sapphire caseback.
  • Deployment clasp with push-button release.
  • Water-resistant to 10 meters, or about 30 feet.

I’ve always liked the idea of the Spring Drive movement — primarily for its superior accuracy, and its completely smooth motion — and now that it has been enhanced with a glide-motion chronograph, I’m extremely intrigued. Hopefully, this technology will move out of the realm of the limited edition and into the mainstream very soon.
