Seiko's new SSE121 pays tribute to a very important watch, not only in the company's history, but watch history in general. The SSE121 is a modern version of the world's first quartz chronograph taking that now iconic Giugiaro design into 2017 with Seiko's GPS solar technology. 

The watch can adjust itself to any time zone automatically and has a perpetual calendar accurate to the year 2100, and daylight savings time functionality. The watch itself is made from lightweight titanium with a scratch-resistant black coating and also features a ceramic bezel, magnetic resistance, 10 bar water resistance, and will be available in a limited run of 3,000 watches.

$3,460 (est.),
