Seiko’s aim is to allow Melbournians a unique and exciting opportunity to explore the world of Seiko through its history, craftsmanship and its finest watches. The Melbourne Boutique will showcase Seiko’s prestigious collections, Grand Seiko, Astron and Credor and will display several watches never before offered in Australia.
Following please find some more information on the special pieces Seiko will be showcasing on its opening night:
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 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 Seiko Melbourne Boutique is located at 264-274 Little Collins Street Melbourne VIC 3000. (03) 9644 5510.
