The New-Style Chronograph created
by defying conventional styles.
The retail price of this watch was about JPY 200,000 (USD 1,853.00), which was an outrageous price for a Seiko watch back then. Yet the most outrageous aspect of this chronograph was its design. The designer in charge of this bold new watch was Shinji Sato. Generally chronographs have small sub-dials within the main dial to fulfill the chronograph function, but Sato employed a convention-defying Independent Multi-Dial design, which completely separated the dials for time display and chronograph function.
