The new Seiko Sportura FC Barcelona Chronograph celebrates the Japanese watchmaker’s partnership with the iconic soccer club.
Earlier this year, SEIKO entered into a three-year partnership with FC Barcelona. As the new 2011/12 season starts, this partnership is celebrated in a new collection of chronographs which carry the team crest and colors.
This quartz sports chronograph watch features long, curved lugs that wrap round the wrist to deliver a close and comfortable fit. The cone shaped chronograph buttons with wide surface area ensures precise operation. The 2,4,8 and 10 o’clock markers are silver, while the rest are white, making the dial less ‘busy’ and increasing the legibility of the dial. The chronograph minute hand has a ‘pointer’ shape to ensure that the correct number is easily read at a glance.
Driven by the Seiko Quartz caliber 7T62, this special edition watch Sportura watch offers chronograph functionality with split-time measurement, and alarm. The watch carries the FCB crest on the dial and is executed in the famous ‘blaugrana’ colors of the club. The crest and the club’s motto “més que un club” is engraved on the case back.
The SEIKO Sportura FC Barcelona Chronograph (SNAE75P1/ JDM SCJC043) is presented in a special presentation box and is accompanied by a commemorative leaflet featuring some of the team’s leading players and their signatures. As the new season opens, each member of the FC Barcelona squad will be presented with his own Sportura FC Barcelona timepiece.
SEIKO’s partnership with FC Barcelona started this spring when SEIKO was appointed as the Club’s “Watch Partner” for an initial three year term. The new FCB watch is one of the fourteen models in SEIKO’s all new Sportura collection, a range of watches that includes watches for all sports and that uses both quartz and Kinetic movements.
