Seiko 5 watches consistently push the boundaries to make edgy new designs while also embodying the traditional values of watchmaking.

Seiko Chronograph Watches

For more than 130 years, Seiko watches have embodied innovation, functionality and superior style. Nothing is more evident of this than Seiko’s chronograph watches. These watches offer an independent sweep second hand usually started, stopped, and returned to zero by successive pressure on the button. This allows you to use the moveable bezels as tachymeters to obtain immediate estimations to do with speed or distance. Diverse in their design, you’ll find everything from Coutura watches to Prospex watches in the Seiko chronograph collection.
