:: Spotlight :: Opening of first Seiko boutique in Australia

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Seiko Australia is excited to announce the opening of its first Seiko boutique in Australia. To celebrate, Seiko has in its first Australian boutique the Credor Spring Drive Minute Repeater valued at $440,000 as well as the $61,000 Credor time-teller and the Credor Spring Drive Sonnerie valued at $200,000.

The Credor Spring Drive Minute Repeater timepiece, by Seiko, uses only premium materials and high-end technology, making the delicate crafting process so complex that only three are produced worldwide each year. In every aspect of its creation, the Credor range marks another milestone for Seiko as a leading manufacturer of ‘complication’ timepieces.

The Sydney Seiko Boutique will also play host to Seiko’s most prestigious collections, including the Credor range as well as Grand Seiko and Astron. The luxury ranges, Grand Seiko and Astron are instantly recognisable by a simplistic and understated elegant form. Having been crafted from only the very finest materials, the design and manufacturing of each cutting edge collection has been done by hand to ensure precision and accuracy in every step.

The Grand Seiko range simply put, is the most precise, durable and easy to wear watch on offer, while the Astron is made using a high-intensity titanium base and sapphire crystal coating for extra class and sophistication.

With the Astron GPS Solar Dual-Time, global travel could not be easier. Using just the power of light, Astron connects to the GPS network and tells time with atomic clock precision, adjusting at the touch of a button to your time zone. Now, with the new Dual-Time calibre, you can read not only the time where you are, but also the time in your home time zone on a simple 12 hour sub-dial with a separate AM/PM indicator.

The boutique will also display several other watches never before seen in Australia, as well as having a resident Seiko watchmaker to assist customers with technical information and assistance.
