A piece for collector to keep as reference in their collection for sure ! ::: History of Seiko Sportsmatic since 1963. ::: 1️⃣9️⃣6️⃣3️⃣ In 1963. The year of the introduction of the first Sportsmatic 5. Sportsmatic 5 set a new standard in accessibly priced mechanical watches with its innovative combination of an automatic movement, 3 bar water resistance and a one-level day and date display in a single window. Its uniqueness was evident also in the case design, with the crown hidden behind the 4 o’clock position. Rugged, dependable and unique, Seiko Sportsmatic 5 instantly made its mark, and began a tradition that is now half a century old, and is still growing. 1️⃣9️⃣6️⃣8️⃣ In 1968, a second series ‘5 Sports’ was introduced to bring the advantages of Sportsmatic 5 to those who demanded the very best. The water resistance was upgraded to 7 Bar, a scratch rsistant glass, Hardlex, was chosen and a rotating bezel for elapsed time was added. A legend was in the making. 1️⃣9️⃣6️⃣9️⃣ In 1969, ‘5 Sports’ Speedtimer was introduced. It was the world’s first automatic chronograph at that time! So, WHY 5️⃣⁉️🤔 From the very start, Seiko 5 was created to be a watch whose performance would serve the demanding needs of the new 1960’s generation, who cared less for tradition and more about life. The watch had five 🖐🏼key attributes : 1. Automatic winding 2. Day/date displayed in a single window 3. Water resistance 4. Recessed crown at the 4 o’clock 🕓position 5. Durable case and bracelet Because it grew out of the watch itself, the name Seiko 5 was deemed to express what made Seiko great and was chosen. A simple and memorable name for a simple but serious watch. WHAT is DIALSHOCK?🙄⁉️ Water resistance was built in as standard to every Seiko 5 watch, and metal bracelets were used so that, from buckle to buckle, the watch was resistant to water and sweat. Shock resistance was assured with two Seiko inventions. First, the mainspring was made from “Diaflex,” 💪🏼an unbreakable alloy, and the “Diashock,” system was created to protect the movement from shock within the case. 🕓 crown at 4 o’clock : The other challenge was to create a distinctive look that defined the brand. SEIKO 5. Thanks to the extraordinary Seiko invention of the ‘Magic Lever,’ the winding efficiency of Seiko 5 is very high, and the wearer rarely needs to use the crown. So the designers made it smaller and hid it under the lip of the case at 4 o’clock, giving Seiko 5 its signature look. If you like what are listing please make sure to follow us.
