Presage Automatic Chronograph Enamel Dial pre-selected for Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve 2016

 

Seiko's Presage Automatic Chronograph Enamel Dial Limited Edition, has been shortlisted in the pre-selection for the prestigious Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve 2016 in the 'Petit Aiguille' category. The final selection will be announced at the Awards ceremony in November this year.

 

The Presage Automatic Chronograph Enamel Dial, draws its inspiration from Seiko’s and Japan’s first ever wrist watch, the Laurel, which was released in 1913. Both its overall design and its enamel dial echo this famous original. It uses the 8R48 chronograph caliber, which has both vertical clutch and column wheel systems, and incorporates Seiko’s unique three-pointed hammer to ensure the perfect synchronization of the hands’ return-to-zero. It is offered in an edition of 1,000 in celebration of Seiko’s 60 years of automatic watch making.
