The movie Alien , a futuristic alien butt kicker AKA Ripley Sigourney Weaver wore a futuristic view of the chronograph. This part of the Seiko 7A28-7000, was one of the first watches with chronograph quartz movement and features a unique design with a pusher buttons are stuck directly on either end of a large metal bar on the side of the body. Originally conceived by car (and Apple, the product) designer Giugiaro Georgette, clocks were far ahead of its time in terms of design and is part of the Seiko movement with respect to the true quartz watches and chronographs in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In short, it is a cult.

Seiko is now part of the re-release with small changes. New Seiko Spirit Smart Giugiaro X looks like the original model, but has a new movement quartz chronograph, but remains faithful to the odd yet compelling position pusher. The new watch will cost $ 260 to $ 292, and gray in black and will be available in limited edition 3000.

Seiko experimenting with strange style pieces later through their line of a new spirit. SCVE007, for example, listen to the Giugiaro-inspired design that looks like a cross between a 1970s disco and early hours of Swatch. For a company dedicated to make only a few significant projects – with a lot of boring pieces of quartz – this is a step in the direction of unique editions is quite exciting
