Seiko and Giugiaro Design. A tradition of legendary chronographs
Seiko commissioned Giugiaro Design in the early 1980’s to create a design for the recently launched world’s first analogue quartz chronograph. The partnership flourished, resulting in Speedmaster, a series of four designs, two analogue and two digital, that were immediate and lasting successes when they were launched in 1983. A decade later, the collaboration was renewed with the creation of the Macchina Sportiva collection, released in 1996. As with the first series, was designed with motor sport as its inspiration. It, too, was a global success and is today prized by motor sport fans and watch collectors alike.
