Seiko is clearly no stranger to celebrating its heritage and with a company that has been in existence as long as the powerful Japanese brand, there’s a topic every year to commemorate. 2019 is an important year for chronographs as it marks the 50th anniversary of the automatic chronograph, a well-worn tale of competition between brands such as Zenith, Breitling/Hamilton/Heuer/Buren, and Seiko. We definitely felt that Seiko would do something related to this milestone, but they happened to mark the birthdate of another achievement, the 55th anniversary of the brand’s first wristwatch chronograph. Let’s take a hands-on look at two new limited edition Seiko chronographs and provide a bit of opinion.

Japanese cars lacking personality?...this fellow remains unacquainted w/ a Datsun 240 Z(much less its' modern day expression, the Nissan 370 Z) or a Toyota Supra, or today's Mazda MX-5...but again, I think these Seiko babes are a bit on the pricy side..Seiko is definitely pushing itself up market, I'm afraid.. :problem:

I quite like this one, but it seems to be about the same price as a C60 Apex. :problem:

This one is emulating a Zenith, which is no bad thing.

I like the first one but it's not the sort of price I would pay for a watch, not even close actually. Samurai prices are about right for me.
