Shown above is the current Seiko Criteria ad featuring the 2nd generation Wang LeeHom chronograph. A new ad is created every time a new Criteria chronograph model is released.
This particular ad shows the Singapore skyline in its background and I think it should be documented here because you don’t see the Singapore skyline or any Singapore landmark appearing in a watch ad very often.
This is a discontinued model but I am taking the opportunity to document it here on this blog since I had the chance to handle a brand new piece recently.
This watch was the first automatic model that was released under the Seiko Criteria line. This particular specimen that I have here was manufactured in September 2004. I believe it was from an early batch because the watch actually hit the stores in early 2005.
