The SEIKO Ultimate Kinetic Chronograph 9T82 combines the reliability and high accuracy of Kinetic technology with the traditional attributes of the mechanical chronograph. Powered by the Seiko Cal. 9T82 introduced in 1998, the series still remains until this day at the very top of the Kinetic line.

Featuring 4 sub-dials with 7 indicating hands, the 38 jewel movement is made up of 350 separate components, and is fully hand-assembled in Japan. The Cal. 9T82 uses a heart piece or cam that is switched between three positions during start, stop and reset functions to maximize reset responsiveness. The movement was specifically engineered to retain the precise feel of the coordination mechanism, reminiscent of the crisp pusher action of the legendary 6139/8. 38 jewels ensure smooth movement of the hands and instantaneous date change.





An elaborate and sophisticated line of Kinetic Chronograph, no more than 2,500 of each 9T82 model has been produced. Indeed, this very same movement equips the current SLQ025J1 which retails at over US$5,200.

The SLQ003J1 (9T82) on offer today is an early model from 1999, and considered very rare. It features a stainless steel “sandwich” case of astonishing workmanship. The top-half is satin-finish, while the bottom is special PVD, mirrored finish that gives the appearance of black chrome armour. Unlike some 9T82 of the period, all four sub-dials are under one sapphire crystal, mimicking an automotive instrument panel, and have a much more timeless appeal, in my opinion.


SPECIFICATIONS

This SLQ003 has been well-loved in the last 11 years, and is overall in a VERY GOOD condition (87% conservative). Though never been serviced, the 9T82 functions flawlessly, and the chronograph work as they should. Timekeeping is well within its specifications range. There are signs of wear on the case and crystal consistent with daily use, as would be expected. Please see the photos included.

The watch comes with a set of brand new, unworn, carbon-fibre pattern straps, as shown. The price also includes worldwide shipping from Auckland, New Zealand, by NZPost International Courier, fully-insured with track&trace. PayPal, no additional fee.
