Seiko Arctura Kinetic Chronograph Titanium 40th Anniversary Edition, Reference SNL019P

The Seiko Arctura Kinetic SNL019P watch was launched in 2004, to mark the 40th Anniversary of Seiko Chronographs.

Back in the 1960s, at around the time when the world’s first quartz watch was taking shape in development, Seiko was also engaged in a separate drive to offer exceptional functions in mechanical watches. In 1964, the company launched the first chronograph made in Japan.

Available in international markets from November 2004, the Arctura Kinetic Chronograph SNL019P commemorates the 40th anniversary of that great achievement with a superlative titanium model.
