This limited edition Seiko Kinetic Chronograph in Titanium (reference SBXZ003) was launched to mark the arrival of the new millennium.
Seiko Kinetic Chronograph houses a quartz chronograph movement (9T82 caliber) with a kinetic mechanism. This timepiece features a unique design with four independent dials, and in February 1999, stainless steel model (reference SBXZ001) was released in a limited number of 1,000 worldwide, which attracted a great deal of attention.
The chronograph uses the “instantaneous zero return method” that instantly returns the needle to the 0 position when reset, achieving the same high-precision operability as a mechanical chronograph. In addition, the Seiko 9T82 Kinetic movement has a quick date feed mechanism that switches the date instantaneously.
The Seiko Kinetic Chronograph millennium model uses titanium with a gray hard coating on the surface of the case and band. Featuring an innovative and advanced design, this independent multi-lens chronograph comes with four dials, a basic clock display, a 1/10 second chronograph display, a second chronograph display, and an hour / minute (30 minutes / 12 hours) chronograph display. Carbon is used for each dial of the chronograph display to emphasize the advanced and fearless impression.
The case back is a see-through specification of sapphire glass, so that you can enjoy seeing the beauty of the delicate movement, and the central part of the glass contains the “KINETIC CHRONOGRAPH 2000” mark.
