Price Drop! Seiko SLQ021 Sportura Honda Formula One Watch

This stunning watch is a "must have" for the Honda/Acura enthusiast. Treat yourself to an awesome Hanukkah/Christmas/Kwanza present. :)

The SLQ021 Limited Edition Sportura Kinetic Chronograph is the ultimate in sports timing.

SLQ021 is a wonderful sports kinetic Chronograph watch from Seiko. This watch belongs to Seiko’s leading sports collection watch series, ‘Sportura’. This is a unique, all chronograph collection inspired by high-performance motor sport. Quartz or kinetic, every sportura watch is designed to perform at the highest level of motor sports. In this watch, the iconic 4 dial layout of the Kinetic Chronograph 9T caliber is retained, but the construction of the crystal above the dials is new and unique. Beneath the main domed sapphire crystal, each sub-dial has its own and entirely separate crystal in a design that was inspired by the headlight clusters now found on the world’s leading sports cars.

Beneath the main domed sapphire crystal, each sub-dial has its own and entirely separate crystal in a design that was inspired by the headlight clusters now found on the world's leading sports cars.

This watch is the ultimate chronograph, with timing up to 12 hours and 1/10 second increments, powered by Seiko's kinetic movement. The separate displays for all functions ensures ease of use and high legibility.

The case is carved from high-grade stainless steel with a black ion-plated ring between the case and glass. The dial surround, like the inset bracelet links, is made of the same carbon fiber as is used in the Honda F1 racing chassis, and the motor sport theme is completed by the see-through sapphire case back which reveals the remarkable Kinetic "engine" that drives the 7-hand movement.

Each Sportura Kinetic Chronographs is presented with an individual, numbered certificate of authenticity signed by Shinji Hattori, President and CEO of Seiko Watch Corporation, and is accompanied by an authentic and individually numbered part from the 2006 Honda F1 racing car. The part is a gear ratio, precision-engineered by Honda Racing F1 at its UK factory and headquarters near the famous Silverstone Racing Circuit. Each of these gear ratios has been built for actual 2006 Honda F1 cars. This gear ratio is offered as a symbol of the shared values of Sportura and Honda Racing F1 - speed, precision and perfection.
