Strong Impact With The Radical Designs Of Seiko Arctura Watches
Radical is Arctura! Yes; us mid-tier luxury lovers (we don’t have tons of money to throw around; if we had, still we wouldn’t have given millions away unless it is something truly exclusive) realized its worth in millions and while not exactly costing that much, it gives you back a million times unless it goes under the truck’s wheels. Not upon intention, you can be sure ‘bout that.
It’s not that they banged on rightaway from their launch in 1997; it took time for people to grasp the idea behind Arctura. Today, it has brought some radical changes to watch wearing. It’s a sleek piece to go everywhere without sacrificing its adventurous spirit! That makes it quite bold.
Today’s high-tech versions are Arctura re-born, with forms some old timers might like calling audacious. But the point here is: Audacity is its Heritage! In the sense, if you consider an aerodynamic (and quite a bit ergonomic) form similar to audacity. Futuristic shapes, in short.
Arctura, because it’s the arc. Considered the most emotionally soothing and satisfying of all known shapes, this arc’s got a curve that resembles those in the Nature. The rainbow, for example; the horizon – actually it’s more horizon than the rainbow. Arc-s signify continuity, purity and eternity, but its ugly if the curvature angles are not done properly. Perfection is the beauty of an arc. Arctura further enhances that with its sleek lines and accentuated circular accents.
Coming to the Limited Edition, the Seiko arctura kinetic watches turns bolder this time with its chicness bumped up by several notches. These are special due to the Caliber 9T82 (heartcam snap-to-zero arrangement, 38 rubies for the bearings and backlash mechanism for ultra-precision) and were offered only 500 pieces worldwide, with an accompanying certificate from Mr. Shinji Hattori, the Seiko President. Don’t grieve if you missed out on them; among the 16 different styles in 5 different calibers, there’s a lot to be explored.
Another significant caliber for the Arctura is the 7L22, with a 15-seconds-a-month accuracy and all the sophistication and practicality that you can possibly dream of.
Three of the most radical designs (men’s and women’s respectively) that first created a strong impact are the Seiko chronograph flightmaster - SLQ, SNL and the SRN series. Which man can let go of the muscle dashboards on his wrist and a woman the allure of diamonds and mother-of-pearl? That’s the secret behind the huge success of these three models. The SLQ025 also comes in limited editions; that’s the true exotic muscle!
But what if you are more comfortable in water than racing on land? You got the SNAC (19 & 21) but the rubber straps are classy enough to match the prestige of the yacht and other water-sports clubs!
