Free Car Mag are big fans of all thing Seiko and the Prospex range is sensational. Not only that, this Speedtimer range clearly has a car connection which makes them especially desirable to us.

Introduced in 1969, the Seiko Speedtimer was a major milestone in chronograph innovation, and marked the beginning of an important decade for the Speedtimer. The 70s were famed for many things: fashion, music but most importantly, motorsports. Inspired by Classical Motorsports, Seiko is delighted to launch three new Prospex Solar Speedtimer Chronographs; ‘Grand Touring’, ‘Circuit Race’ and ‘Racing Sports’.

The Prospex ‘Grand Touring’ Solar Speedtimer Chronograph is inspired, and designed to be reminiscent of, vintage muscle cars that would race down endless highways. While the ‘Circuit Race’ timepiece is inspired by vintage circuit racing. Lastly, the Racing Sports’ is inspired by the lightweight sports cars of the past, and comes with a black punched calf leather strap – a first for a Seiko Speedtimer. Featuring a solar-powered V192, these Prospex Solar Speedtimer Chronographs are accurate to +/- 15 seconds per month, whilst maintaining a full charge of 6 months. With a chronograph second scale around the dial ring, these pieces also features a Tachymeter on the bezel for measuring speed – an iconic element of the original Seiko Speedtimer.

The Prospex Solar Speedtimer Chronograph is available at the, £590 – £620
