Why I think this watch is interesting:
In 1997 SEIKO released the first ever Kinetics Chronograph. And the first limited edition looked almost identical to the Sportura below. I remember, I immediately wanted one. "No Sir, we got only 7 for whole Thailand and they are all sold on the first day. The retail price was THB 89'000 (ca. USD 3'560) Sir. And the price by now is probaby double that (ca. USD 7'000)". This anecdote is just to illustrate how hot those first Kinetic Chronographs were and still are!
Now the watch is finally available again. I have the Arctura Kinetic Chronograph
in my private collection. I like mine a lot, but since I was so much in love with the original futuristic and avant-garde looking original one, I have never really forgotten it! And my picture of the Arctura Kinetic Chronograph was obviously so good, that the STUFF MAGAZINE (Singapore Edition talking about 40 very hot watches that should be in every collection) stole my picture and published it in one of their issues. I only found out about this after the largest Thai Newspaper "Thairat" (I still have a copy of it on my desk because I am still following up on this copyright violation) stole the picture from the STUFF MAGAZINE. Strange times indeed when the printed media steel from the internet!
But one thing is clear, those watches and pictures of them are very hot. If you want a watch that will start watch discussions or attract looks, then go for this one. It is really a Chronograph that is easy to use, easy to read. Mechanically powered with Quartz accuracy. What more could you wish for?

Weight: a whopping 190 grams!

I also want to give credit to Helen in Hong Kong who took fantastic pictures of this watch. She chose all the angles perfectly and Helen has lately produced really great watch photography. Since she will be the main watch photographer for PMWC in the near future, you will see a lot more of her great watch photography
