Seiko Presage 1964 LE White Dial
Seiko was in charge of making the official watch for the first international sports event held in Japan in 1964, which triggered development of a watch with a stopwatch function.
The Crown Chronograph was a simple chronograph based on the Crown, a manual winding mechanical watch.
Although a one-push chronograph, the use of a column wheel meant reliable control of the stopwatch function. To this day it is considered a legendary timepiece that exudes Seiko’s uncompromising manufacturing ability.
Not only in its function but also with its design and the high legibility, the watch is a standard to tell the time.
The design of the 1964 Crown Chronograph has been reproduced as faithfully as possible. The clearly defined Arabic numerals applied to the narrow bezel and the fine minute gradations highlighted on the dial, has been reproduced throughout. The case has an inwardly tilted shape so that it rests securely on the wrist, which increases stability.
High legibility is ensured through the use of LumiBrite on the distinctive indexes.
A non-reflective coating is applied to the inner surface of the sapphire glass to improve legibility even further.
