Seiko Cronos 15001A from 1960 (SD Dial)
Introducing the Seiko 15001A, a piece of horological history that embodies Seiko's commitment to precision and innovation.
Under the prestigious Seiko Cronos banner, this timepiece marked a significant milestone as Seiko's inaugural watch featuring a center second hand, expertly crafted by Daini Seikosha. Designed with the goal of offering a slimmer, high-performance alternative to the renowned "Marvel," it was created with Suwa Seikosha's excellence in mind.
Among the various iterations under the reference 150001A, the example we present here stands as one of the most sophisticated.
The watch's dial showcases a captivating granular texture, elevated by a refined gold minute track that encircles it. But it's the solid gold indices, proudly bearing the iconic sun looming logo above the index at 6 o'clock, that truly elevate the dial's allure.
The watch case remains in excellent condition, with only minor hairline scratches, a testament to its careful preservation. The dial and hands maintain their original vibrancy, free from any signs of aging, while the watch crystal remains impeccably clear.
This exceptional timepiece is elegantly paired with a brand new, handcrafted top-grained leather strap.
