Seiko mechanical watches are highly prized by collectors: from the Seiko “5” series (the 5 reflects five key features of the watch, namely automatic winding, day and date display in a single window—rare at the time, water resistant, recessed crown at the 4 o’clock position and durable case and bracelet—i.e. steel), which is the most common, to the highly prized luxury “Credor,” “King Seiko,” and “Grand Seiko” lines.
The A359 5040 Sports 100 Chronograph, released in 1981, is an extremely rare chronograph, with only a few examples seen world wide. An employee of Seiko Australia, in response to request for information about the watch stated, “Sorry, all the details of that model have been lost in the mists of time. We have no images on file.”
Today, Seiko Kinetic watches account for a large proportion of sales that combine the self-energizing attributes of an automatic watch with quartz accuracy. The watch is entirely powered by its movement in everyday wear.
